A TEAM OF SER­VICE TECH­NI­CIANS FROM Truck­stops Napier has beaten 29 other teams from around the coun­try in the New Zealand leg of the Volvo In­ter­na­tional Ser­vice Train­ing Award (VISTA) 2019/’20 com­pe­ti­tion.

The com­pe­ti­tion be­gan last Oc­to­ber, pitch­ing teams from Truck­stops branches na­tion­wide and the Volvo au­tho­rised dealer net­work, against each other.

The Napier team, com­pris­ing team leader Ben Trea­gus, Luke Ross and Shan­nan Smith,“put in a huge ef­fort to come out on top of what was an ex­tremely chal­leng­ing com­pe­ti­tion,” says Volvo Trucks NZ.

Bruce Har­ris, tech­ni­cal ser­vices man­ager for MTD Trucks, says: “There are many com­po­nents to the tech­ni­cal, parts and war­ranty sys­tems which per­son­nel learn through this ex­pe­ri­ence.

“That makes VISTA so im­por­tant to Volvo Trucks’ suc­cess in NZ – and, most crit­i­cally, the suc­cess of our cus­tomers. To win you have to be con­sis­tent and that was the key to Truck­stops Napier’s suc­cess.”

VISTA, which is open to all ser­vice pro­fes­sion­als within the Volvo Trucks and Volvo Buses global ser­vice net­work, is reck­oned to be the world’s largest com­pe­ti­tion of its kind.
