“With your commitment, we are able to achieve the number 1 truck brand title for 23 consecutive years. People continue to trust the Isuzu brand because of the Isuzu advantage that we offer which is our top-notch aftersales service and support,” said IPC President Tetsuya Fujita.

The ISSO also serves as a platform for selecting the team that will represent IPC in the prestigious I-1GP Competition in Japan to be held later this year. Since joining in 2006, IPC has been a consistent top performer in both the Commercial Vehicle (CV) and Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) categories competing against other Isuzu-serving countries worldwide.

“Globally, Filipinos are known to be very talented and dedicated workers, which is why it is not surprising that almost every year Isuzu Philippines will get a podium finish at the Isuzu I-1 Grand Prix World Technical Competition (I-1GP),” said IML Executive Officer and Vice President for Aftersales, Mr. Naohiko Yanagawa.
