In October this year, two technicians from Isuzu Truck UK’s dealer network are to represent the UK in the Isuzu World Technical Competition that is being held at Isuzu Motors Ltd in Japan. Historically this week-long event, which focuses on the technical skills within the Isuzu network, has primarily involved Isuzu subsidiaries from the Asian continent. However, following an observation visit last year by ITUK training staff, technicians from Isuzu Truck UK have been invited to participate in this global skills competition for the very first time.
When Batsford Timber decided to replace its aging DAF 7.5tonne delivery vehicle, the company chose to switch brand for the first time by specifying a new Isuzu N75.190 chassis cab with a tipper body.
