The final round of TIP’s first-ever international mechanic team competition took place in May 2022 in the company’s workshop in Valencia, Spain.

Held on Tuesday, May 10th in Valencia, Spain, six teams represented Italy, The Netherlands, Canada, Poland, United Kingdom, and Sweden.

The first ever mechanic team competition winner was Team Bretje, our Dutch team from the Benelux region. The Swedish team (Nordic region) came second, followed by Poland (Central region) who placed third.

The event was the culmination of a project that began with more than 100 two-person teams competing across Europe and Canada.

The company said: “As part of our company culture, we are committed to celebrating the talents and expertise of our people. Our mechanics are the heroes that ensure the flawless operation of keeping our customers’ fleet going. We therefore devised this competition to highlight and celebrate their skills, knowledge, and talent.”

The competition was divided into four rounds:

  • 1st round: Internal workshop competition, which took place in October 2021
  • 2nd round: National competition, which took place in December 2021
  • 3rd round: Regional competition (Nordic region, Benelux region, Central region, Mediterranean region, Benelux region, UK & Ireland region, and Canadian region), which took place in April 2022
  • Final round in our workshop in Valencia, Spain, which took place in May 2022.

All rounds were completed with special attention to safety awareness measures considering the safety of the participants.

At every level the teams had to compete on three individual elements:
  • Practical ability, such as skills, speed, and quality
  • Theoretical knowledge, with the difficulty increasing each round
  • IT proficiency of the team players, such as how to find technical data and how to use TIP’s software

Winners of each round got to proceed to the next one, and the jury was composed of internal workshop managers and maintenance experts.

The company said that the event is expected to be an annual event, so will start again later in the year.
