ISUZU FOR UK’S MASTER BUILDERS
IN England, Isuzu has become the official sponsor of the Federation of Master Builders (FMB).
Established in 1941, the FMB is the largest trade association in the building industry and is a source of knowledge and professional advice for its members. The FMB’s strict membership criteria give consumers confidence when they are looking to use a builder.
George Wallis, marketing manager at Isuzu UK, said the company sees the relationship as the start of a fantastic partnership for the next two years. “Isuzu UK are clearly positioned as the pick-up professionals and we see a real synergy with this fantastic organisation and their highly qualified, professional members,” said Wallis in a statement.
ARGENTINA has become the fifth country to manufacture the Navara bakkie as Nissan expands to keep up with global demand.
The South American bakkie is built at the Alliance partner’s Renault’s Santa Isabel plant in Cordoba.
The expansion forms part of Nissan’s announcement that it plans to increase sales of light commercial vehicles (what we call bakkies in South Africa) by 40% by 2022 globally.
The Navara is also made in Spain, China, Mexico, Thailand and is sold in 180 countries.
FAW most improved brand
FAW has been named the most improved truck brand in the latest annual National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Dealer Satisfaction Index (DSI) survey.
Market research firm Lightstone received 165 responses from commercial vehicle dealerships across the country. Although most commercial vehicle brands remained relatively constant or showed a slight decline, a significant incline in scores for FAW SA contributed to an overall improvement in the entire category.
Isuzu UK has partnered with England’s Federation of Master Builders.
The Navara is known as the Nissan Frontier in South America.
