Record breaking success for Isuzu’s 3.5t Grafter Green

The Isuzu Grafter Green 3.5 tonne rigid truck has won the 2018 ‘Best Builder’s Truck’ award for a record-breaking seventh time in succession. The multi-award-winning trophy for Isuzu Truck, presented by leading UK business van magazine ‘Trade Van Driver’, is unprecedented in the history of this publication’s awards programme.

Isuzu Truck UK’s managing director Pete Murphy received the prestigious award from TVD’s editor Matthew Eisenegger at ITUK’s Head Office in Hatfield.

According to this year’s judging panel; “In the eyes of the judging panel, the Isuzu is everything any business needs that is looking for robustness and ease of access. Plus the award-winning sales and after-sales customer service programme ‘CARE’ makes the Isuzu Grafter a clear winner for the seventh successive year.”

Trade Van Driver, a specialist trade van magazine for small business users, organises this annual awards programme and the entries are judged not only by the expert panel of journalists at the magazine but also by a panel of readers who regularly use light commercial vehicles as part of their businesses.

The 2018 Trade Van Driver Awards aim to give recognition to the manufacturers, organisations and people who, in the opinion of the judges, offer the very best to retail buyers.

“Now in its seventh year, the TVD Awards have, once again, highlighted the leading products aimed at the lighter end of the commercial vehicle market. We are absolutely delighted that the ‘Grafter’ has maintained its 100% success rate overall seven years of these awards, and this reflects the natural fit of the Grafter Green in the tough working environments experienced within the building and construction industries,” commented Pete Murphy, managing director at Isuzu Truck UK Ltd.
