In a formal ceremony held last August 2, Isuzu Philippines Corporation turned over to Solid Trend Trade Sales Inc. of the Excel Trend Group of Companies seven Isuzu D-MAX pickups and one QKR truck at the Maxxis Tyre office along Multinational Avenue in Sucat, Paranaque City.
Excel Trend Group of Companies is the exclusive distributor of the renowned Maxxis, CST and Michelin Tires in the Philippines.
During the turnover, IPC Vice President Yasuhiko Oyama remarked, “We are very honored to be providing the Excel Trend Group of Companies their latest Isuzu D-MAX and QKR. We believe that this is going to be the first step toward an upgraded logistic system of Solid Trend Trade Sales Inc.”
He added: “We thank the Excel Trend Group of Companies for trusting IPC in providing them their first fleet of Isuzu vehicles. We are confident that aside from providing a more durable and reliable transport and logistics solution, we also guarantee that we will be providing the best service assistance they need.”
Jaybee Atanacio, Sales Director for the Excel Trend Group of Companies, said that the Isuzu vehicles would, indeed, play key roles in the company’s efficient operations. “We chose Isuzu because we believe in the product that provides durability and at the same time fuel efficiency. This, in turn, makes our company perform better and cuts cost in our operations.”
Atanacio disclosed that the Isuzu D-MAX would be used by the fleet sales and regional managers in Luzon and Mindanao for their fieldwork and customer visits.
The Isuzu D-MAX comes from a long line of Isuzu’s tough and reliable trucks spanning nearly a century. With its Blue Power-developed engines, the pickup also provides truck-levels of strength, durability and rigidity with its high-tensile steel frame chassis and cabin. The D-MAX also meets ASEAN safety standards.
On the other hand, the Isuzu QKR truck is the tough, compact, and reliable business partner. Powerful, practical, and price competitive, the compact cab carries a robust 4JH1-TC Euro4-compliant Blue Power engine that generates a maximum power output of 106 PS and 230 Nm of torque. Its reinforced chassis frame is capable of carrying up to a gross vehicle weight of four tons to drive businesses forward.
