Dudley-based Truckman Hosts National Isuzu and Subaru Dealer Conference

Truckman, the UK’s leading manufacturer and distributor of pick-up hardtops and accessories, transformed its extensive West Midlands facility into a conference venue to host more than 250 UK motor industry professionals on behalf of Isuzu and Subaru.

The Dudley-based company became the first supplier to ever host the IM Group Dealer Conference at its premises, which provided the ideal setting to discuss industry issues and the group’s current and upcoming vehicle ranges.

Welcoming Isuzu and Subaru dealers from across the United Kingdom and guests from around the world, Truckman utilised its 120,000sq.ft premises to create a conference hall featuring stadium-style seating and audio visual equipment. IM Group has also created a heated outdoor space with catering facilities and seating in its external distribution area.

In addition to attending the conference, which also highlighted the upcoming trends and innovations in pick-up truck accessories, delegates were given a tour of Truckman’s product development and manufacturing facility, which is part of a recent £2.6m investment programme.

Truckman’s head office building has provided much-needed additional warehouse storage and hardtop fitting capacity to meet the increased demand from its multi-channel business stream.

Sales of its hardtops and its range of vehicle accessories have been driven by its strong relationships with Original Equipment (OE) customers, which include Isuzu.  

Mike Wheeler, Joint Managing Director of Truckman, said: “We were very proud to host this important industry event for one of the world’s leading vehicle distributors. We have a long and successful relationship with Isuzu UK and were keen to host its dealer conference.  

“The investment we have made in the business, in particular in our new facilities, provided a great setting for this conference and interesting discussions about future developments in our industry.”

Darren James, Group Resource Director from Isuzu, said: “Hosting our dealer conference at the premises of one of our established accessory suppliers has been a successful initiative and we would like to thank the team at Truckman for their hospitality. Isuzu has a very engaged dealer network and I am sure they took a lot away from the conference and enjoyed the experience of attending the event at Truckman.”
