Isuzu Malaysia Sdn Bhd recently delivered eight units of its Forward Series (F-Series) medium-duty trucks to Mr D.I.Y. Group (M) Berhad, a popular homegrown retail giant. Of the eight new trucks, six are the Isuzu FSR90 while the remaining two units are the Isuzu FVR300. These trucks are part of Mr DIY’s fleet expansion due to increased logistical needs.
“We are very pleased to have completed the delivery of eight units of Isuzu medium-duty FSR90 and FVR300 trucks to our esteemed customer, MR D.I.Y., and to be able to continuously provide the support they require to operate their flourishing logistical assignments. We would like to thank MR D.I.Y. for the support and trust given to the Isuzu brand,” commented Koji Nakamura, CEO of Isuzu Malaysia Sdn Bhd.
MR D.I.Y. purchased its first Isuzu truck in 2017 and has been steadily adding more units to its fleet over the last four years. With these additional eight units, MR D.I.Y. now owns a total of 100 units of Isuzu trucks in its fleet.
The new trucks were purchased from Ultra Gallant Sdn Bhd, an authorised dealer for Isuzu and were presented to Mr D.I.Y. at its headquarters in Seri Kembangan.
“As one of the largest Japanese truck manufacturers globally, it is our obligation to provide our customers with commercial vehicles that can lead the way forward for their business to achieve maximum efficiency and productivity,” said Nakamura.
He added that both of the models are from Isuzu’s F-Series medium-duty commercial vehicles that it has been producing for decades through continuous development of new trucking innovations. Customers have been relying on this truck model for the advanced features, innovative design, and dependable performance.
“Isuzu’s F-Series range of commercial vehicles feature a choice of five powertrain for a range of performance and torque, optimized wheelbases for greater load capacity and body-mounting capability, offering the versatility today’s businesses need to be successful,” Nakamura added.
Commenting on the handover of the vehicles, a MR D.I.Y. spokesperson said, “We are on a strong growth trajectory, with 700 stores now, and plan to open 175 new stores across our three brands in 2021. The backbone of our growth is the efficient distribution of goods via our centrally-managed distribution system. Isuzu has been a valued long-standing partner who well understands our needs, and has been supportive in meeting them.”
“The Isuzu FSR90 and FVR300 medium-duty trucks are the ideal, adaptable, and value-added choice for meeting the requirements of any transport assignment. With the gross vehicle weight of 11,900 kg for FSR90 and 19,000 kg for FVR300, we are confident the trucks will be able to provide high utilization with absolute productivity, reliability, and safety for the sustainability of MR D.I.Y.’s soaring business,” said Nakamura.
