Picture This: Isuzu North America Technical Competition

NEPA Employer Hosts National Technical Services Competition

Every year, Isuzu Motors Ltd. holds a worldwide competition to find the top Isuzu technicians. Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc. in the CenterPoint Commerce and Trade Park in Jenkins Twp. once again hosted the North American competition. We stopped by to get a quick peek of the action.

The competition features an incredible display of skill, talent and overall knowledge. Competitors are scored on performance in three rounds. They compete in vehicle diagnostics, mechanical component evaluation and inspection, and a written exam.

The top 12 technicians from all over the U.S. and Canada met at the company’s state-of-the-art facility in Jenkins Twp. The 3 highest-scoring individuals move on to represent North America. They will take on teams from roughly 30 different countries at the 2019 Isuzu Grand Prix Technical Competition in Japan. This year, the North American team is on a mission to best their 2nd place finish in 2017.
