Kuala Lumpur, 9th September 2022 – Isuzu Malaysia Sdn Bhd shared today that Klang-based Xinsteel Sdn Bhd, a steel sheet manufacturing company, has recently purchased and received their first unit of GIGA EXZ460 6×4 prime mover with manual transmission, a newly launched new generation Isuzu GIGA Prime Movers. Moreover, the company also had placed order for another two units from this latest GIGA range which will be delivered within the next two months. All three trucks were purchased by Xinsteel from Isuzu’s authorized dealer SV Prestige Sdn Bhd.
Xinsteel Sdn Bhd was founded in 2011 with business in the operation of blast furnaces and steel mills. The company already own a previous model of Isuzu GIGA truck and this new additional unit will be used to transport Xinsteel’s metal sheet to customers nationwide as the company’s business scales up.
A truck handover event was held recently at regional GIGA event at Puchong and was attended by senior management members of Xinsteel, Isuzu Malaysia and SV Prestige. At the event, Chester Kua Swee Leong, Director of Xinsteel Sdn Bhd said, “We look forward to putting our new GIGA truck to productive work as our business in the steel industry has been picking up pace since the economy started operating in full force again in the endemic phase.”
“Prior to this we already own a GIGA truck, a GXZ360 model, which we had bought from SV Prestige as well in 2020. The truck has been serving us very well. Being in the steel business, most of the time the cargos that we transport are extremely heavy, requiring us to utilize truly robust and powerful heavy-duty trucks that will not break down easily. We are glad to know that the latest GIGA trucks offer even higher horsepower engine, greater safety features and better cab design, ergonomics and operability. Combine all these with the quality and timeliness of Isuzu’s aftermarket support, we have no doubt that the new GIGA trucks are the obvious choice for meeting our requirements effectively and efficiently.”
“With regard to our drivers, I believe they will be especially pleased with the comfortable cab interior and a host of new exciting features like the LCD information display to ease their driving tasks,” added Chester.
Launched just over a month ago, the Isuzu GIGA EXZ460 is part of the new generation range of prime mover with a presence when it comes to delivering greater horsepower and performance, stature and efficiency that are meant for heavy and demanding operations. This new range produces power and performance through the Euro 3 standard of 15.6-litre 6WG1 engine with up 460 horsepower.
Also offering greater features for optimum truck operability, the new GIGA trucks are equipped with a 4-inch LCD multi-information display meter on the dashboard which displays a host of important information from gear to cruise control and brake display, fuel economy meter, water temperature gauge and many more that are all categorized into four display sections, namely the driver assistance, transmission, utility and always-on display areas.
Greater cab interior and ergonomics of the new GIGA trucks are also served through the high-performance seat with an integrated seat belt produced by the prominent German company ISRINGHAUSEN, which provides excellent comfort through features like seat warmer and cooling ventilation, and various adjustments such as tilt structure, reclining angle, shoulder, and lumbar support to fit different body shapes and preferences.
Shunsuke Okazoe, Chief Executive Officer of Isuzu Malaysia Sdn Bhd commented, “The new generation Isuzu GIGA truck range is a very significant product line which represents the first full model change since Isuzu launched the first generation in 1994 in Japan. This new range is our response to the challenging demands in today’s heavy logistics industry, where businesses are continuously seeking ways to achieve higher efficiency whilst maintaining cost effective measures. We trust the new Isuzu GIGA will bring ample efficiency and productivity for Xinsteel Sdn Bhd’s business.
