ISUZU MOTORS LIMITED (JAPAN)

COMPANY PROFILE

Isuzu Motors (Japan) was founded in 1916 and became a 'Limited' company in 1937.  Isuzu Motors has the longest history of any Japanese vehicle manufacturer and is one of the world's largest producers of commercial vehicles spanning light, medium and heavy weight classes.

The company is also the world's largest commercial diesel engine manufacturer with its range of high quality diesel engines not only being used in road transport applications, but also as stationary power plants, for power generation and for marine propulsion applications.

As an industry leader, Isuzu Motors takes its environmental responsibilities seriously and while on a constant path of product and operational improvement, every endeavour is made to minimise its environmental impact.

Aside from its dedication to producing powerful yet fuel efficient low emission diesel engined products, the company is also heavily involved in the development and production of alternative fuel technologies including Compressed Natural Gas and hybrid diesel-electric vehicles.

Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) has been a fully owned subsidiary of Isuzu Motors Limited (Japan) since November 2005, when General Motors' interest was retired in the predecessor joint venture Australian operation, formerly known as Isuzu-General Motors Limited.

Isuzu Motors Limited's dedication to research and development and worldwide economies of scale coupled with its strong relationship with IAL ensures many benefits for the brand's Australian truck, marine and diesel engine customers.
