hi, trivia tim. i think there's a mercedes-benz truck factory in your neighborhood called north benz or north star w/ch produces trucks for the oil industry. i wonder if it's still in operation. w/regards to heavy trucks in china, i suppose that it's to be expected that since only big companies buy big trucks, & in china big means state-owned, that the state-owned companies will buy chinese. i think that dc is just making a low-cost entry into the chinese market w/this deal, banking on the foton name to try & penetrate the chinese market w/out too big an investment in manpower.
