On Sunday September 10th, and as Hurricane Irma moved on towards the US mainland, SYGFS was contacted by representatives of the British Government to ask if it could urgently supply vehicles for the upcoming relief effort. The Government was reacting at very short notice to a global event and wanted to help. The vehicles were delivered the following day to the British Royal Navy vessel HMS Ocean for loading and onward transportation to the Caribbean. The vehicles were inspected before loading by Lieutenant General Edward Davis CB, CBE on behalf of the British Government.
The SsangYong Pick-Up’s versatility and 4X4 off-roading capability, will prove to be essential for the relief efforts as it can be used as a people and goods transporter.
