Our successful story began in 1999. At that time, cooperation began between Cherkasy Bus JSC (it was a part of Bogdan Corporation at that time) and world-class Japanese companies — the leader in the production of diesel engines and commercial vehicles ISUZU MOTORS LIMITED and its partner, NISSHO IWAI Corporation (now SOJITZ Corporation).
Our Japanese partners made a pilot supply of ISUZU NQR71 trucks. However, the market did not take this certainly outstanding on the world market truck properly at first. The decision was taken to do a small bus design development on the efforts of Ukrainian specialists and to use ISUZU truck units for it.
Many people remember how suddenly, as much as unusual and unexpectedly high-quality new Bogdan buses based on ISUZU components literally broke into the Ukrainian market. At that time, large buses like Icarus have long been obsolete, new trolleybuses and trams didn’t arrive either, therefore, passengers had minibuse
Whereas, in 2000-2001 little more than a hundred new busses based on ISUZU were sold, then in 2002 almost half a thousand, and in 2003 – 1188. The same year, our company began to sell ISUZU trucks themselves (at the beginning it was the same NQR71, then NQR70 and NQR75 were added. Now the NPR75 and NQR90 are analogs of those flagships ISUZU models in our market, and now this is only a small part from the list of trucks that are constantly expanding).
Over the years, consumers of almost all the countries that once made up the USSR and not only got to know about them but also became fond of them.
Since that time, comfortable, maneuverable and high-quality small-class buses based on ISUZU components are consistently leaders in passenger transportation in Ukraine. Now we call it ATAMAN. In 2011 the Cherkasy Bus JSC withdraw the Bogdan Corporation from and the brand was rebranded soon. In total, more than 20 thousand buses and about 2,200 trucks were produced and sold.
The success of the automotive manufacturer couldn’t be possible without proper distribution activities. Distributors of our group of companies are participating and take responsibilities for a wide range of duties — from sundry delivery including components (mostly Japanese ISUZU components), supply chain, production, and marketing budget, till after-sale support of the customers of ISUZU-ATAMAN. The uninterrupted supply of spare parts, training, and technical support for users is also their area of responsibility.
Today, KOMTRANSKOMPLECT LLC is an authorized distributor of ISUZU trucks, ISUZU D-Max pickups and authentic spare parts for all trucks, buses, and pickups. ISUZU-ATAMAN UKRAINE PrJSC is an authorized distributor of ATAMAN buses based on ISUZU power components and ISUZU trucks.
ISUZU-ATAMAN UKRAINE PrJSC is a successor of the Japanese-Ukraine joint-stock venture called ‘Isuzu Automobile Company, Ukraine’, which was founded in 2006 riding on the wave of triumph entry of the ISUZU based product to the Ukrainian and neighboring markets. At that time the share of both sides, the Japanese and Ukrainian were equal.
In 2018 in order to optimize the business process, Japanese shareholders decided to sell their share to the Ukrainian member of the joint-venture. Thus, the company has got its modern new name — ISUZU-ATAMAN UKRAINE.
Over the past 20 years, the united system of a manufacturing plant, distributor and authorized dealers and service stations has been created. The aim of the system is to identify, study and completely fulfill the needs of the clients of the commercial market providing quality modern and systematic ISUZU-ATAMAN branded service.
"Isuzu Motors was founded in 1916, as a Japanese first automobile manufacturer. Since it founded, Isuzu has supported distribution and enhanced people's life by supplying environmentally friendly products technologies & services to the world. Our aim is to protect the natural beauty of the planet to fulfill ISUZU corporate responsibility while fulfilling our business affords. ISUZU flagship products are commercial vehicles and engines supported by ISUZU systems and services. ISUZU diesel engines are used by a number of world-known automotive brands for many vehicles of their model range, such as General Motors."
The products marketed as "Sumiya" and "Chiyoda" were renamed, thus, the name ISUZU first appeared. The word Isuzu translated into English means "fifty bells" and it is the name of the river. The river is notable because it flows through Ise Grand Shrine in the city Ise, Mie Prefecture, Japan, the company was named after it.
The company had succeeded in developing the first Japanese air-cooled diesel engine models. These early diesel were to serve as the foundation of all later generations of ISUZU diesel engines.
Production of TX40 gasoline and TU60 diesel trucks resumed. A bit later ISUZU became solidified in the public mind as a top diesel engine manufacturer in Japan.
In 1949 a final name changed to become — Isuzu Motors Limited, the company's present name. As a result of exclusive governmental permission, it got strong support in the industry to lead development of diesel technologies.
"For restoring vehicle production, Isuzu Motors has developed a first Japanese diesel DA80 in response to booming demand. Moreover, ISUZU has developed a pre-combustion chamber that has been upgraded and became the standard industry combustion chamber with indirect injection. Additionally, Isuzu has developed a combustion chamber with direct injection but with advanced configuration. The model has attracted industry attention for its high performance. "
Isuzu's good name in the diesel field lives on at Japan's permanent research facility at the South Pole. Isuzu was selected in 1955 by the Japanese government as the supplier of all diesel engines for snowmobiles and generators at the Japanese base and has photo image joined the Japanese expedition to Antarctica from its beginning in 1956.
" Japan still suffered a shortage of fuel after war. However, the launch of Isuzu's bonnet-type truck in 1959 led to explosive sales. With the excellent fuel economy of its DA640 diesel, it boasted rugged performance on bumpy roads and extra durability even if the truck was heavily over-loaded. Later it turned into ISUZU N-series product line-up, the company's light-duty trucks. Introduced in 1959 and now are leading Japanese trucks sold in well over 100 countries. "
"Isuzu developed Japan's first diesel engine for passenger cars. The DL201 model was presented with the 1961 Technological Award by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers."
The DL200 model, which was mounted in 1964 on the Elf, Japan's first cab-over light-duty truck, has gained great popularity in the market thanks to its excellence in economy and durability.
"In September 1971, what was to prove a more durable capital agreement was signed with General Motors. As a result of the GM joint venture, Isuzu engines were also used by existing GM divisions — Chevrolet LUV, Gemini, Statesman.Nowadays some USA Chevrolet vehicles are still using ISUZU powertraine for production."
"Japan entered the age of high-speed transportation in the decade by enhancing transportation infrastructure, backed by a fast growing economy. In the latter half of the period, the U.S. dollar crisis in 1971 and the first oil crisis in 1973 forced automakers to pay attention to energy-saving vehicles, competing with each other in developing turbo-charged engines and intercooled engines. Air pollution and noise also became critical issues for the automobile industry. To cope with the trend, Isuzu adopted in 1973 its newly-developed low-emission, light-weight and high output PA model in the V Series lineup to ten-ton payload trucks and tractors."
"Reflecting customer need for more fuel-saving, safe and low polluting vehicles, in the year 1981, ISUZU put on sale ten-ton payload trucks equipped with high-torque, fuel-saving turbo-charged 8PB1-T and 6RA1-T engines. ISUZU introducing the world's first full-scale electronically controlled diesel for both light- and heavy-duty trucks, which makes them higher output and lower fuel consumption. Besides, ISUZU leads the industry in developing ceramics for diesel. *One of the remarkable development of ISUZU for the first time in the world, was the Ultra Quick on Start (QOS) system which eliminated preheating time during start-up and was represented in the same period The same year ISUZU began selling consumer and commercial vehicles under their own brand in the United States. This year the ISUZU pick-up was the first model sold to consumers under its own name."
In 1983, the company released a new heavy-duty truck series in Japan, named as the 810 Series, after carrying out the first full-scale changes in 15 years. Improved features of the new series included the introduction of advanced diesels such as electronically controlled 6RA1-TC turbo-charged model, which incorporated intercooled design, and the V-type PC Series engines, which boasted enhanced displacement.
ISUZU enters into cooperation with the Ukrainian production of PJSC "Cherkasy Bus" launching the pilot delivery of ISUZU NQR. The first Ukrainian small bus A091 built on the basis of Japanese components entered the market after only one month.
D-Max Ltd started its 6,6L 8GF1 diesel engine production which is in Canada sold as GM Duramax 6600. This engine is available in full-size pickups, vans, and commercial vehicles.
ISUZU D-Max world premier pickup in Thailand. It is a co-product of ISUZU and General Motors. It is subsequently in 2004 appeared in the US as the GMC Canyon, which was identical to the Chevrolet Colorado - version for the Middle East and Thailand. Its second-generation SUV is identical to the Chevrolet TrailBlazer. In Australia in 2003-2008, it was sold as a Holden Rodeo and since 2008 as a Holden Colorado
The second generation of the ISUZU D-Max has appeared. Almost identical to the Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon: the same platform and chassis, body design, mechanical components and interior design, but with its own visual identity through an aggressive angled front panel with raised headlights and a different radiator grille.
ISUZU D-Maх arrive with minor cosmetic changes to the grille
ISUZU marked the 100 anniversary of the activities in the field of diesel engines. It just so happened that the history of ISUZU coincides with the progress of diesel engine development in Japan in general.
ISUZU-D-Max got new updates in Thailand again. It got a new grille and headlight bumper. The interior has also undergone some changes. According to the results of the European Committee evaluation of new cars — Euro NCAP for Independent Crash Tests D-Max received 4 stars out of 5 or 83%.
"Today, ISUZU has assembly and manufacturing plants in Fujisawa, as well as in the Tochigi and Hokkaido prefectures. It also has a number of subsidiaries abroad which combined forces to develop low-emission engines, responding to market needs. European and USA automotive leaders are highly appreciate ISUZU engines mounting it on their vehicles. ISUZU engines are chosen for excellent performance and fuel economy, which is a testament to the overall high quality and excellent performance modeling. They count on Isuzu diesels for its superior performance and excellent fuel economy, which is a clear endorsement of the overall high quality and excellent environmental engineering of Isuzu diesels."
