In today’s challenging economic climate, where competition among manufacturers and employers is intense, receiving an Accelerator award is of immense value.
At the annual NAAMSA Accelerator Awards held last month, Isuzu clinched two highly coveted titles – Most Improved BBBEE Compliant Manufacturing OEM of the Year, and Medium Commercial Vehicle of the Year for its exemplary Isuzu N-Series trucks.
Billy Tom, the president of Isuzu Motors South Africa, expressed his delight, saying, “This momentous achievement has left Isuzu delighted and honoured by the recognition from our peers and the industry at large. These accolades serve as a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence, quality, and sustainable business practices, setting us apart in a highly competitive market.”
Isuzu’s triumph in the Medium Commercial Vehicle of the Year category underscores its deep-seated commitment to transformation and inclusivity. Isuzu’s dedication to empowering previously disadvantaged individuals and communities, as well as championing localisation, has positioned Isuzu as a beacon of transformation in the industry.
“Winning these awards is a testament to the dedication and hard work of the entire Isuzu team. We take great pride in our commitment to manufacturing high-quality vehicles while simultaneously striving to enhance economic empowerment and compliance. These awards symbolise our unwavering commitment to our customers and our people,” he says. “We have made significant investments in developing vehicles with reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency, further solidifying our dedication to a cleaner and greener future and delivering world-class vehicles.”
