Truckstops Napier wins Volvo service comp
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.
