Glendale Managed Services expands Isuzu fleet

Isuzu and Glendale

Green services provider Glendale Managed Services has taken delivery of two Euro 6 specification Isuzu trucks.

The new Isuzu N75.190 Forwards join two existing Isuzu trucks which have been operating on Glendale’s fleet for around a year.

The latest vehicles will be on Glendale’s new contracts in the North London area, and will be involved in the maintenance of trees in the London Boroughs of Harrow and Hillingdon, handling a range of arboriculture applications from supporting routine tree-felling to annual pruning programmes.

Stuart Darbyshire, commercial director at Glendale, said: “Glendale is a relatively new user of Isuzu trucks, taking our first Isuzus in 2014.

“We were really impressed by the demonstration vehicle supplied by our local dealer and subsequently bought two new 6.2 tonne GVW Isuzus on the back of this initial contact.

“Both the original Isuzus performed really well in service, so we decided to duplicate the order for our 2015 requirements but this time moving from 6.2 tonne vehicles to the latest Euro VI 7.5 tonne specification.

All four Isuzus have been supplied by local dealer Cordwallis Commercials and the latest two 7.5-tonne vehicles are based in Glendale’s South East region, operating from its Watford depot.

Darbyshire said: “Based on the performance of the four Isuzu trucks over the past 18 months, we now consider the Isuzu Forward to be the standard 7.5 tonne vehicle for our fleet: it has become the template for future purchases at 7.5tonne.”

Keith Child, marketing director of Isuzu truck UK, said: “In a short period of time, Glendale’s Isuzu trucks have already left a lasting positive impression with their performance and overall productivity.

“We now look forward to working closely with Glendale on their future fleet requirements.”
