Isuzu welcomes Bidvest McCarthy
Bidvest McCarthy has invested in an Isuzu Trucks dealership located just off the N4, at Gateway Industrial Park, east of Pretoria.
“Isuzu Truck dealers are service organisations that also sell trucks. This new dealer is a development that flows out of a truck marketing study conducted in 2002,”says Isuzu Trucks COO, Craig Uren.
“There are Isuzu Truck dealers in the north and west of Pretoria and Midrand. The Bidvest McCarthy Pretoria East investment now closes the service loop for this region, in addition to a route presence on the N4,” he adds.
At the helm of the new operation is Bidvest McCarthy dealer principal Liza-Marie Gibson, who has seven years of truck retail experience. Gibson comments: “We are a lean, mean team with a strong focus on the distribution sector where Bidvest industrial has a strong presence.”
Steve Keys, group CEO of Bidvest Automotive, concludes: “While South Africa is experiencing economic hard times, we do not see the market segments that this new dealership will serve contracting as much as the rest of the economy. Business success comes from cooperation and collaboration, and this is what we have established with Isuzu Truck South Africa.”
The dealership offers on-site, after-hours and Saturday servicing. In addition, there is a drivers’ lounge where drivers can relax comfortably while their trucks are being serviced.
