Ateco to drive Foton in Australia

Ateco Automotive is to take over importation and distribution of Foton light and medium trucks in Australian and New Zealand from November 1, 2012. A revamped model line-up will be available in early 2013 with pricing, specification and further details to be announced closer to that time.

“We have enjoyed great success in this country over the past few years with Chinese made utilities and SUVs, and I think the time is now right for us to press ahead and enter other market segments with well-equipped and very competitively priced Chinese products,”
 Ateco’s Governing Director, Neville Crichton, said.

The new agreement comes after Western Star Trucks Australia broke off its agreement with the Chinese manufacturer last month over concerns contractual commitments would not be met to its expectations.
