Isuzu New Zealand, the country‘s number one truck supplier for 19 consecutive years, is continuing to enhance their reputation as the leading all-round truck brand thanks to an ongoing focus on the service side of the business.

“In addition to the lofty objective of increasing share and maintaining leadership, we have also set the ambitious goal of developing a comprehensive, nationwide Isuzu service network,” said Colin Muir, general manager Isuzu Trucks New Zealand.

“Our ultimate aim is that a customer and their truck should never be more than a one-hour drive from an Isuzu service centre, where they know they will be looked after thanks to factory trained staff, industry leading diagnostic capability and genuine Isuzu parts.”

As of this month, Isuzu is one step further towards completing the target through the appointment of Taumarunui Auto Centre as an authorised service centre, in conjunction with Shorland Isuzu in Rotorua.

Taumarunui Auto Centre owners Stu and Leanne Golden have worked with Shorland Isuzu to attain accreditation from Isuzu New Zealand. They will be available for scheduled servicing, breakdown repairs, warranty repairs and genuine Isuzu parts.

Stu explained the opportunity for growth of the heavy diesel workshop is huge, and he is genuinely excited about prospects for the future and looks forward to welcoming customers and offering them peace of mind servicing support, knowing their truck will be looked after to the exacting standards of Isuzu New Zealand.

“I intend to focus my time developing the truck side of the business while my son, Michael, himself a master technician, will have the car side as his priority,” said Stu.
