Isuzu UTE Australia commits to three more years with Surf Life Saving Australia

The extended partnership means Isuzu UTE Australia will continue to supply Surf Life Saving Australia with a fleet of vehicles to help patrol the nation’s beaches

Major vehicle brand Isuzu UTE Australia has confirmed it has extended its partnership with Australia’s largest volunteer movement Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) for another three years.

Isuzu Ute Australia (IUA) says it’s proud to renew the national partnership, after first beginning to make contributions to SLSA since 2021.

Alongside this, IUA has also provided a fleet of rescue-ready vehicles to help respond to incidents with essential lifesaving and rescue equipment while also supplying mobile patrol services and delivering education programs on the road around Australia.

“Three years into our partnership, Surf Life Saving Australia’s legacy of 117 years continues to inspire us. We are honoured to extend our support for an additional three years, recognising the profound impact they’ve had on the community and the ongoing commitment to their vital mission,” IUA managing director Junta Matsui says.

“Embedded in the heart of local communities, the essence of SLSA lies in safeguarding Australian beaches and the people who frequent them. IUA is extremely proud to continue to support SLSA and the courageous individuals dedicated to beach safety through their patrols, training initiatives and educational endeavours.”

SLSA CEO Adam Weir says IUA’s reputation for reliability and durability made it the best choice for SLSA, offering off-road capability, towing functionality and safety features in a demanding environment.

“All our lifesaving equipment needs to be durable to withstand the challenging beach conditions and dependable when called upon by our surf lifesavers. The Isuzu D-MAX Ute and MU-X SUV are no exception and we are pleased to continue the partnership with IUA for at least three more years,” Weir says.

“It is with the support of partners like IUA that we can effectively patrol our beaches. This partnership will increase the capabilities of surf lifesavers and lifeguards in day-to-day duties and allow them to focus on what they do best – saving lives.”

IUA and SLSA look forward to flying the iconic red and yellow flags together for the next three years, symbolising safety across patrolled beaches nationwide.
