Isuzu PH fields brand new CYH52S dump trucks to Davao-based Anseca Development Corp.

December 18, 2019

2019 has been a big year for Isuzu Philippines Corporation. Aside from new model launches and its relentless pursuit to promote modern public mobility, it also took an endeavour to strengthen other fields of business, primarily those who require commercial trucks to move forward.

Case in point, the Japanese brand recently took a trip down south in Davao to hand over 6 brand new units of its CYH52S trucks to Anseca Development Corporation, an earthmoving company which powers Holcim Philippines.

At a glance, these trucks come with a custom dump body built by Centro Manufacturing. Each unit boasts a 20 cubic meter rear chassis-hinged dump scoop which can be raised by a push of a button. Under the body is an Isuzu Blue Power Technology 15.7L 6WG1-TCN turbodiesel engine that delivers 420 hp and 1,863 Nm of torque. This motor is then spun around by a 7-speed manual transmission.

In a simple turnover ceremony held within the Anseca compound, Isuzu Philippine Executive Vice President Shojiro Sakoda said, “IPC continues its market dominance in trucks for 20 consecutive years, dating back to 1999; and for decades, Isuzu has been known globally for its durable, dependable, and reliable trucks that can withstand any challenges in transport operations. With our collaboration with local body builders, our trucks have also been crafted to be suitable for whatever purposes our customers demand. Equally important is the aftersales support we provide to our clients along with every purchase—this is the Isuzu Advantage.”

But Why Isuzu? This question was happily answered by Anseca’s current Chief Operating Officer, Engr. Dino Selma. In an interview, Selma shared that his company, which he inherited from his father, has been a long-time user of Isuzu trucks for a wide range of purposes like hauling and delivery work. As observed by the company since its inception in 1983, Isuzu trucks have exhibited toughness and durability. Selma added that Isuzu truck are easier to maintain and that parts are readily available.

Anseca, an enterprise primarily engaged in earthmoving and allied activities, began its operations in 1983 and has since successfully completed 24 projects with clients such as the Philippine National Oil Corporation, Del Monte Philippines, Sta. Lucia Realty & Development Corp, Vista Land, Atlas Consolidated Mining & Development Corp, and Cemex Corp. It now has a series of ongoing projects with Holcim Philippines, Philex Mining, and Libjo Mining.
