Norwich-based dealer Dingles Isuzu is set to deliver a fleet of D-Max pick-ups to East Anglia-based housing association Flagship Housing Group.
Flagship Housing Group signed a deal with Isuzu UK for 15 of the mid-specification Isuzu D-Max Eiger pick-ups after a competitive pitch against major rivals.
The pick-ups, all liveried in its signature Bottle Green colour, will be fully-fitted with load-bed liners, a hardtop canopy and rooftop ladder carrier. The new fleet will be used to manage the maintenance of Flagship Housing Group’s 22,000 homes across the East.
Isuzu UK will also deliver a fleet of Isuzu D-Max pick-ups to civil engineering specialists, Jones Brothers. The award-winning Welsh firm has so far ordered 15 units from the Isuzu D-Max Premium range to service projects across the north of Wales.
William Brown, general manager at Isuzu UK, said: “The expansion of our business-focused sales activities is already paying dividends. These two fleet deals say a lot about our brand – not just because they build on our strong core of retail sales we have secured so far in 2013 – but also because they demonstrate the breadth of the D-Max’s appeal to businesses operating across diverse disciplines.”
In April 2013, Isuzu appointed Gary Scott to the newly-created role of national fleet manager.
The Isuzu D-Max had record sales during the month of March (814 units).
