UP IN LIGHTS FOR ISUZU 50TH ANNIVERSARY BILLBOARD COMPETITION

Nov 16, 2022 3min read

Six lucky trade businesses have their names plastered across giant billboards in their capital city to celebrate Isuzu Trucks 50th anniversary of operation in Australia.   T

he businesses – all Isuzu truck owners -- are the winners of the Isuzu 50th Anniversary Billboard Competition.  

As well as the week-long billboard exposure, each winner will receive a $1,000 fuel voucher. 

To enter the competition, Isuzu owners had to come up with a slogan for their billboard celebrating the reliability of Isuzu Trucks, by describing how Isuzu Trucks has helped them in their business and upload an image of their Isuzu truck.  

“The winners were chosen for the creativity and originality of their entry,” Isuzu Australia Limited’s Head of Marketing and Customer Experience John Walker said.  

IMPRESSIVE ENTRIES 

“The judges were incredibly impressed by the quality of entries and the amazing ways Isuzu trucks are put to work throughout Australia.  

“The billboard winners include a mobile welding business, a skip hire outfit and a range of tradies, which shows just how many applications Isuzu products can be used for,” he said.  

To prepare for their billboard debut, each winning business had a professional photoshoot to capture their stunning trucks and cheeky slogans.  

The winners and their slogans from each state are...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA – ROBERT LAWRENCE TOOHEY SOLE TRADER 

Robert Lawrence Toohey Sole Trader 

“We're celebrating reliability by getting Rob to save the day” 

Perth-based Robert Toohey and his one-year-old Isuzu NLR 45-150 Traypack are a mobile hot water high pressure cleaning service that can clean wheelie bins, commercial bins, oil stains and graffiti. Rob bought the Isuzu truck to replace the ute-and-trailer setup he was previously working with, and he said the difference is “night and day,” because he doesn’t have to fuss around with the trailer anymore.  

The truck can easily cart Rob’s two-tonne water tank and his 300 kg hot water high pressure cleaning unit.   “It’s made a huge difference,” he said.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA - TRUBILD 

Adrian Krollig from Trubild Pty Ltd 

“We’re celebrating reliability by getting from A to B every time.” 

Trubild owner Adrian Krollig went out on a limb two years ago and bought a NLR 45-150 from North East Isuzu in Adelaide with a little concrete pump on the back.  

Adrian said he chose the truck because it could be driven on a car license, and was small enough to fit down residential driveways where Trubild’s work often takes it.  

The business provides two main services: brickwork and stonework, mainly for renovation of heritage buildings; and weighbridge civil construction.  

“I was flabbergasted to find out that such a simple slogan would catch the eye of the judges and win,” Adrian said.  

Get in touch with Trubild on 407600856. 

VICTORIA - FOURTH PHASE ELECTRICS 

Casey Landman from Fourth Phase Electrics 

“We're celebrating reliability by getting power to the people.” 

Fourth Phase Electrics is a 24-hour electrician based in Melbourne’s east, with four staff on hand. 

Owner, Casey, said he was shocked when he won the competition with his brand-new NPR 55-155 SWB, which only has 2,000 km on the clock.  

“I feel very lucky, it was pretty unexpected.” 

As for the new truck, Casey said it’s “awesome, I love it.”

CELEBRATING SUCCESS  

Mr Walker said the billboard competition was one way Isuzu could share its success with its loyal customers.   “Reputations ride on us, and we value the trust our customers place in our brand and staying with Isuzu over the past 50 years,” he said.  

“We can only hope the exposure this unique prize generates for the winning entrants’ businesses will be huge and drive even more success in the future.”
