A handover ceremony of the new Isuzu trucks was held recently at Mr D.I.Y.’s headquarters in Seri Kembangan, Selangor.
Isuzu Malaysia Sdn Bhd had recently delivered 8 units of medium-duty trucks from its Forward Series (F-Series) range to popular homegrown retail giant Mr D.I.Y. Group (M) Berhad.
The new trucks comprise 6 units of the Isuzu FSR90 model and two units of the Isuzu FVR300 model procured from Isuzu’s authorised dealer, Ultra Gallant Sdn Bhd, and will be used to further support Mr DIY’s nationwide expansion and its increased logistics needs.
A handover ceremony with a mock key presentation to mark the official delivery of the new Isuzu trucks was held recently at Mr D.I.Y.’s headquarters in Seri Kembangan, Selangor, and attended by the senior management teams of Isuzu, Mr D.I.Y. and Ultra Gallant.
Koji Nakamura, CEO of Isuzu Malaysia shared, “We are very pleased to have completed the delivery of 8 units of Isuzu medium-duty FSR90 and FVR300 trucks to our esteemed customer, Mr D.I.Y., and to be able to continuously provide the support they require to operate their flourishing logistical assignments. We would like to thank Mr D.I.Y. for the support and trust given to the Isuzu brand.”
Mr D.I.Y. purchased its first Isuzu truck in 2017 and has been steadily adding more units to its fleet over the last four years. With these additional 8 units plus all the previously purchased and registered Isuzu commercial vehicles, Mr D.I.Y. now owns a total of 100 units of Isuzu trucks in its fleet.
“As one of the largest Japanese truck manufacturers globally, it is our obligation to provide our customers with commercial vehicles that can lead the way forward for their business to achieve maximum efficiency and productivity,” said Nakamura.
He added that both of the truck models are part of Isuzu’s F-Series medium-duty commercial vehicles that the company has been producing for decades through continuous development of new trucking innovations, and where its customers around the world embrace and count on for the advance features, innovative design, and dependable performance.
“Isuzu’s F-Series range of commercial vehicles feature a choice of 5 powertrain for a range of performance and torque, optimised wheelbases for greater load capacity and body-mounting capability, offering the versatility today’s businesses need to be successful,” Nakamura added.
Commenting on the handover of the vehicles, a Mr D.I.Y. spokesperson said, “We are on a strong growth trajectory, with 700 stores now, and plans to open 175 new stores across our three brands in 2021. The backbone of our growth is the efficient distribution of goods via our centrally-managed distribution system. Isuzu has been a valued long-standing partner who well understands our needs, and has been supportive in meeting them.”
“The Isuzu FSR90 and FVR300 medium-duty trucks are the ideal, adaptable, and value-added choice for meeting the requirements of any transport assignment. With the gross vehicle weight of 11,900kg for FSR90 and 19,000kg for FVR300, we are confident the trucks will be able to provide high utilisation with absolute productivity, reliability, and safety for the sustainability of Mr D.I.Y.’s soaring business,” said Nakamura.
