Isuzu Trucks a Star Performer at Chippindale’s for 12 Years

Chippindale Plant, a family-run company that have recently been acquired by AER Group, has taken delivery of four new Isuzu trucks over the past twelve-months, with the latest two replacement trucks being Isuzu Grafter N35.125 dropsides that are now working across the company’s eight depots in the North of England.

Having taken their very first 7.5 tonne Isuzu way back in 2010, which is still in daily operation, Chippindale Plant now have thirteen Isuzus in their sixty-strong commercial vehicle fleet, consisting of ten Isuzu Grafter 3.5 tonne trucks and three Isuzu 7.5 tonne rigids.

“We have found that the Isuzu trucks are strong and dependable working vehicles. Over the twelve-years we have had them in our fleet they have proven to be both robust and reliable, certainly built to work in a tough environment and providing us with excellent payload and low running costs as well as the capacity for towing plant to and from our customers,” said Tony Atack, operations director, Chippindale Plant.

Tony continues, “Isuzu Truck are a proactive company and have worked hard this year to ensure that we have been supplied with vehicles at a time when other manufacturers have failed to perform. Throughout the acquisition programme for these new trucks, we had excellent communications directly with Isuzu Truck because of the trusting working relationship between our two companies.”

The two latest Isuzu Grafter 3.5 tonne dropsides will be covering approximately 35,000 km per annum over a six-year working life, delivering light plant and welfare units to customers throughout the North of England.

Chippindale Plant provides the complete hire & sale solution for plant, tools, excavator attachments and site accommodation throughout the entire North of England, which is based on a proven award-winning customer-focused service. As a family-run business, originally founded in 1949, Chippindale Plant operates from its head office in Leeds and a further eight strategically placed depots in Catterick, Huddersfield, Keighley, Newcastle, Manchester, Sheffield, and York.

“Long term customer satisfaction is part and parcel of the journey taken by our customers when they invest in an Isuzu truck.  Our bourgeoning relationship with Chippindale Plant is testimony to importance that Isuzu places on its long-term Customer CARE programme and a main reason why Chippindale Plant continues to put its faith in the Isuzu marque,” said Jon Corcoran, Senior Fleet Sales Manager, Isuzu Truck (UK) Ltd.
