One of the most important considerations for a business purchasing a truck is up-time and that’s why Australia’s best truck brands work to ensure they have the best technicians.
Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL), Australia’s best-selling truck brand, recently conducted local heats for the brand’s international I-1 Grand Prix.
Those heats put nine of the brand’s best technicians head to head through an exam and a series of practical tests at Isuzu headquarters in Melbourne.
Coming out on top were Jake Quick, from Ballarat Isuzu, Drew Murden from Peel Valley Isuzu.
The victorious pair will now travel to Japan in November to take on the best Isuzu technicians from across the globe.
IAL National Training Manager, David Smith, tells us its hoped the boys can take Australia one better than the silver medal finish achieved in 2016.
“Internationally, the I-1 Grand Prix is in its 12th year and the competition is only getting fiercer. But at our trials all the talk amongst the technicians was about wanting to see the IAL team go one better than last year,”
“While only Jake and Drew will be heading to Japan to represent IAL, putting these technicians through their paces revealed how passionate and professional they all are about their work.
“Having such a talented group ultimately benefits the Australian truck customer who can buy an Isuzu truck knowing there’s a world-class team of professional technicians on-hand when it’s time for a service.”
