Isuzu will provide Glendale with 25 utility-spec double-cap D-Max pick-ups which have been prepared to Glendale's specifications.

The investment follows Glendale's recent £5.5m framework win to provide utility arboriculture services on behalf of Western Power Distribution (WPD) in November.

Glendale engineer Mark McKinnon said: "After winning the tender with WPD we contacted Isuzu with our requirements and a very short lead time. The whole process has felt like more of a partnership from day one and everything has been delivered in the most professional way.

"The vehicles have been prepared to our specification at a very high standard, including corporate wrapping and decals, Chapter 8 decals and lighting, off-road wheels and tyres, PDI and road registration.

Fleet operations manager for Isuzu, Alan Able said it was "very gratifying" that Glendale had chosen the D-max.
