Engines are the heart of Isuzu, an industry leader that marked cumulative production of over 16 million diesel engines in 2003. The company that developed Japan's first diesel engine, in 1934, is truly global today. Isuzu completed the company's goal of establishing a diesel engine supply network encompassing Europe, North America, and Asia as well as Japan. These overseas plants are systematically linked with each other, with the engine production bases in Japan as their mother plant. Research centers operate in the U.S.,Germany,Thailand and Japan.
Isuzu's industrial engines set the standard for the world. Cumulative OEM sales stand at over 3 million units, while in Japan alone Isuzu holds a share greater than 50% of the non-captive OEM market. Reliability and durability have been proven time and again, in applications ranging from cooler power sources for refrigerated trucks to construction machinery, agricultual tractors and boats. Isuzu even supplies the snowmobile engines and power source for The National Expedition Camps in Antarctica. Customers know they can count on Isuzu for much more than unparalleled engine performance. Isuzu is also a leader in customer support-from installation studies to worldwide field service operations-and in environmentally friendly diesel engine technologies.
