LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC, Dayton Parts, LLC (DP, LLC), Haldex and SKF have joined forces to create the Technician of the Year Award program.
The program recognizes a fleet’s superstar technician who exemplifies the best qualities of the profession, including his/her technical and mechanical experience, service specialties and overall contributions to the industry.
Throughout the year, fleet managers will have the opportunity to nominate a technician by visiting www.techoftheyear.com or by clicking the link available on each of the four participating sponsor company Web sites. Following the annual Nov. 1 nominating deadline, a panel of independent judges from various heavy-duty industry organizations and the four company sponsors, will choose a winner from the pool of applications.
The winning technician will receive a VIP trip to NASCAR’s first race of 2006 as an Honorary Pit Crew Member for one of Richard Childress Racing’s three NASCAR NEXTEL Cup teams. Additionally, the technician and his/her fleet will receive national recognition from select trucking industry trade publications.
The Technician of the Year Award Program is designed to recognize fleet technicians as a valuable asset in the heavy-duty fleet marketplace. Bendix, DPI, Haldex and SKF value the award as an industry standard, recognizing those who dedicate proper maintenance techniques to the profitability and quality of their fleet operations.
