TIS (NGA) Ltd doubles up with four new Isuzus in its fleet19 January 2022

The arrival of the latest Isuzu dropside truck into the fleet of industrial service provider TIS (NGA), completes a programme of four new Isuzus covering both 7.5 tonne and 3.5 tonne GVW, that have been delivered to the north-east company during 2021, doubling its overall fleet size within 12 months.

Supplied by local Isuzu dealer Thompson Commercials, two Isuzu N75.150 (E) 7.5 tonne long-wheelbase trucks fitted with dropside bodies from Robinson Truck Bodies, and two Isuzu Grafter N35.125(S) 3.5 tonne long-wheelbase trucks fitted with TGS dropside bodies, are now working in the TIS fleet, delivering fabric maintenance and access support material on projects all over the UK.

Kevin Heilbron, operations director, explains why their fleet has grown so quickly with Isuzu: “Towards the end of 2019, TIS adopted a change of strategy that required running its own fleet of trucks, and after careful consideration, we felt that Isuzu provided us with the optimum choice of vehicles for the efficient transportation of access equipment.”

“In my previous employment, I had worked closely with Thomson Commercials, so it made complete sense to continue this relationship here when we committed to a fleet expansion programme based on the Isuzu marque.”

Each vehicle is expected to cover at least 35,000 miles per annum during their working lives.

“The relationship we have with Isuzu Truck UK and Thompson Commercials is excellent, with Thomson’s providing a really personalised service to ensure that we obtained the right specification of truck for our operational requirements,” commented Heilbron.
