Isuzu Truck UK technicians take on world 19 July 2010

In October, two technicians from Isuzu Truck UK's dealer network will represent the UK in the Isuzu World Technical Competition in Japan.

Previously, the week-long championship, which focuses on technical skills in the Isuzu network, has been dominated by Isuzu Asia, but this year, technicians from Isuzu Truck UK have been passed the first hurdle and been invited to participate.

The technicians are Derek Tansley, from DT Trucks in Barking, and Ruth James, from Beech's Garages in Stoke on Trent, following a selection process earlier this year from Isuzu Truck UK trained master technicians.

"ITUK has developed a high level of training and skills expertise and our approach to customer service, through our CARE programme, has been recognised by Isuzu Motors in Japan, with this first ever invitation to participate in the World Technical Competition," says Keith Child, Marketing Director, Isuzu Truck UK.

Thailand was victorious in the 2009 competition, winning the event for the third consecutive year, with teams from Japan and Vietnam coming 2nd and 3rd respectively. In total, technicians from 10 countries, involving 280 participants, attended the annual competition, including Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Philippines, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

"It's a huge honour for us to be invited to participate in this global event and I am sure that both Derek and Ruth will be successful ambassadors for the ITUK dealer network during this intensive competition in Japan," adds Child.
