“The European Technician of the Year competition underlines the importance of professional workshop technicians,” comments Johan Drenth, aftersales director of DAF Trucks NV.
“Modern trucks are high-tech vehicles, and a broad and deep technical knowledge is required to work on them,” he continues.
“In addition, the technician is the business card in the workshop of the DAF dealer so he or she plays an important role when it comes to customer satisfaction.”
DAF dealers throughout Europe entered their technicians for the competition.
“I could hardly believe it when I was chosen as the DAF UK Technician of the Year,” comments Baker, who received the trophy from Johan Drenth (pictured).
