PARSIPPANY, N.J., Jan. 31 /CNW/ -- CHAMCO AUTO announced the selection of
Indiana-based Advantage Truck Accessories as the supplier of tonneau covers
and other accessories for its new line of Chinese import pickup trucks and
SUVs. The vehicles were introduced in North America last year at the North
American International Auto Show and the NADA show, and are scheduled to begin
shipping in Mexico in 2008 and the U.S. and Canada in early 2009.
According to Rich Garich, Senior Vice President, After Sales Operations
for CHAMCO AUTO, "We selected Advantage Truck for a number of reasons,
including its reputation as an innovator of product design and engineering,
manufacturing quality, existing market penetration and the unique value its
products add to today's truck buying consumers. Advantage has existing market
penetration in North America, an area where the introduction of these vehicles
will be focused in the immediate future." Advantage Truck is located in
Elkhart, Indiana, in the center of America's automotive industry.
Terry Dicke, Advantage Truck president added, "CHAMCO AUTO has introduced
two vehicles that will undoubtedly become qualified alternatives for the
value-conscious truck buying public. These high quality, Italian-designed,
Chinese-built vehicles are in their final stage of re-engineering to meet U.S.
Safety Standards and other vehicle regulations. Distributed in 48 countries
throughout the world, CHAMCO AUTO will be providing distribution, marketing
and after sales support through the U.S., Mexico and Canada, markets we
already serve with existing distribution channels."
The CHAMCO AUTO SUV is built on a 112.2" wheelbase and is available in
2WD or 4WD. A similar sized 2 WD or 4WD four-door pickup truck will be
introduced at the same time. Both are five-passenger vehicles. They will be
shown at NADA, scheduled for San Francisco, CA February 9-12, 2008. CHAMCO
AUTO is on track to be the first company to deliver Chinese-built vehicles
throughout North America. Their stylish, high quality pickup trucks and SUVs
are extremely competitively priced and have already caught public attention
since their introduction last year.
CHAMCO AUTO (China America Cooperative Automotive, Inc. --
www.chamcoauto.com), is on track to become the premier North American
importer, marketer, certification engineer and distributor of high quality,
stylish and affordable Chinese automotive products -- including SUVs, pickup
trucks, crossovers, compacts, sedans, hybrids and sports cars. The company
plans to begin importing from China to Mexico in 2008, with the U.S. and
Canada to follow in early 2009. CHAMCO's fully equipped vehicles will be
priced at least 20% below comparably equipped brand name competitors.
