We’ve Got Isuzu Touch Up Paint
Isuzu is mostly a commercial vehicle and light trucks manufacturer. As with other established Japanese businesses, Isuzu started making cars as a way to expand their business. The company was originally named Tokyo Ishikawajima Shipbuilding and Engineering Co. and the first prototypes were a result of an association with the Tokyo Gas and Electric Industrial Co. However, the real step forward came with the partnership with Wolseley Motors Limited in 1918. The agreement signed allowed Ishikawajima to produce the Wolseley under license for the East Asian market.
After furthering their knowledge of the automotive industry, the company built their first bus prototype in 1935. This bus was particular because it featured air brakes and an engine mounted under the floor. The company officially took the name Isuzu in 1949 and developed an affinity with the design of diesel engines. The lack of immediate prosperity in Japan could be explained by the Japanese predilection for smaller cars. As a response, they concentrated in the medium and heavy truck market.
During the following decades the company underwent a lot of changes in alliances and partnerships. Alternatively signing deals with Subaru, Mitsubishi and Nissan until an alliance with General Motors proved more effective for the company. This new cooperation allowed Isuzu to develop the small truck business as well as expand their market in the U.S. At first, they were exporting vehicles under the GM brand names. The initial model branded Isuzu to appear in the U.S. was in 1981.
In the Asian market, the brand discontinued its line of diesel cars in the late 90’s. From then on, the company was only selling its trucks, SUVs and commercial vehicles on this territory. Their withdraw from the North American market came in 2009.
