Leading truck manufacturer Isuzu Truck UK has announced details of its new main dealership on the Isle of Man, with the recent appointment of B&C Engineering Ltd in Ballasalla, who will have full responsibility for Isuzu sales, service and parts on the island.
According to Jon Bennett, managing director at B&C Engineering Ltd,
"Whilst we know that we are the first full Isuzu dealership here, I also believe that we are the first ever commercial vehicle dealership from any commercial vehicle manufacturer on the island to offer a Manx based dedicated sales operation, and not just service and parts support linked to a mainland dealership."
"We see great potential for the full Isuzu range from 3.5 tonnes to 18 tonnes, with the 7.5 tonne trucks being well received already. Isuzu’s comprehensive three year unlimited mileage warranty across the range will attract operators to the marque and the proven product versatility is ideally suited to the road infrastructure on the island," added Jon Bennett.
As part of their commitment to the full Isuzu dealership, B&C Engineering have already put an Isuzu Grafter 3.5 tonne rigid demonstration vehicle into stock for potential customers to evaluate.
"Without doubt, the well renowned advantages of the full Isuzu truck range, in terms of payload, reliability and versatility, will offer significant long term benefits to transport operators on the Isle of Man. We believe there is sufficient market potential here for us to be the first manufacturer to appoint a full sales, service and parts dealership on the island," said Keith Child, Marketing Director at Isuzu Truck UK.
