ISUZU SHOWCASE THE BRAND'S DEDICATED FLEET CONVERSION CENTRE AT THE COMMERCIAL VEHICLE SHOW
Isuzu will display an array of specialist fleet vehicles at this year’s CV Show
Isuzu will return once again to the Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC in Birmingham from 24th–26th May 2022, located at stand 5D60.
At this year's show, Isuzu will be showcasing the brand’s Fleet Conversion Centre which provides a bespoke vehicle production service to suit the needs of any client. The dedicated centre, based in Sheerness, works in conjunction with the brand’s fleet sales, homologation & technical teams to ensure Isuzu are in a unique position to offer their fleet customers a specialised build to order service, whilst retaining the manufacturer warranty and ensuring the capability of the vehicle is not compromised in any way.
The vehicles on display, which have been built to current customers' requirements, include an Isuzu D-Max Utility Double Cab for Network Rail featuring a Truckman canopy with roof vent and internal lighting, additional exterior lighting, all-terrain tyres, VB Tech air suspension system, Axtec axle weight load indicator system and an interior mirror reverse camera kit. The load area is finished with a bespoke racking storage system, COSHH storage locker, handwash and DEB hand cream PPE unit and a water boiler.
Other vehicles on the Isuzu stand include an Isuzu D-Max Utility Extended Cab from National Resources Wales which features a Truckman canopy with internal lighting, high-power exterior lighting, and a double slide-out drawer system, with sliding cargo tray, racking storage units and a slide-out vice assembly. Other items include all-terrain tyres, an in-cab rear seat storage system with PPE hooks and a fire extinguisher, a first aid kit and a warning triangle.
Another example of just how diverse customer requirements can be, Isuzu's stand will also feature an Isuzu D-Max Utility Double Cab from Mitie Landscapes. This unique vehicle includes an N&J Agrican canopy, under-rail load liner and bespoke internal ladder rack with swivel lighting. This vehicle is also fitted with the VB Tech air suspension system and a bespoke snow plough bracket mounted at the front of the vehicle and bespoke brackets for attaching portable ramps on the rear tailgate.
Neil Scott, National Fleet Sales Manager, Isuzu UK said:
“At the CV Show this year we want to demonstrate the versatility and professional approach of our dedicated Fleet Conversion Centre, which enables us to provide a one-stop-shop for Isuzu fleet customers. We have a number of our vehicles on display which demonstrate the adaptability and flexibility of not only the Isuzu D-Max pick-up but also the service that we can provide to meet the varying demands of our current and future customers. We believe this one-stop-shop approach means that we can help to minimise not only the overall cost of a vehicle and conversion but also any potential future vehicle downtime when it comes to repairing or replacement of any components.”
The Isuzu display will also feature an Isuzu D-Max Utility Single Cab from Cumberland Platforms Limited (CPL), the UK access platform specialists. The CPL conversion is type-approved with a 3.5t suspension upgrade and 7t GTW. The platform has a working height of 13.1m and a working outreach of 6.2m, which means the platform knuckle remains within the vehicle’s working envelope at all times and removes the possibility of it being hit by oncoming vehicles when working at height on the highways.
