Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) capped off its 16th Isuzu Service Skills Olympics (ISSO) through a virtual awards ceremony last June 11, 2021. The skills and knowledge of service technicians, service advisors, and parts staff from Isuzu dealerships nationwide are put to the test in the Service Skills Olympics.
“It is very unfortunate that we cannot do our usual ISSO face to face. However, this year, we strive for excellence as we intend to continue to improve the technical skills capabilities of all aftersales staff and personnel,” said Mr. Wataru Miyamoto, IPC’s Vice President for Aftersales. “This pandemic caused a major disruption to our business. Please allow me to express my sincere appreciation to our dealers for all your continuous support to our ongoing aftersales programs despite these trying times,” he added, addressing the dealer participants.

Being 1 of the 5 to receive the award proved that all the aftersales activities of the Philippines are of high caliber and top of the class in Isuzu network’s standard around the world. This will not be made possible without the efforts and cooperation of our dealers,” he said.
