The latest contest was held in the UK recently, in Nottingham, focusing on the talents of body and paint technicians. Four finalists in each category competed in the final, after making their way through an initial online multiple choice test.

The final tested both practical skills and the ability of the technicians to interpret and follow technical methods and instructions. Topping the challenges this year were body technician Daniel Barlow from RRG ARC Bolton and paint technician Tony Glover of Parklands Toyota in Helston.

As part of their prize package, the lads attended Toyota’s 23rd Annual Assembly of International Customer Service Champions in Japan, where they were also able to experience all aspects of Japanese culture and learn more about the theories and practice of the Toyota Production System.
