RPM TECHNIK RECRUITS CHRIS BOYS
Air-cooled expert to bolster RPM Technik’s Special Projects Division
Buckinghamshire-based RPM Technik has recruited Chris Boys, the renowned Porsche technician. Boys will work alongside Ollie Preston in RPM Technik’s Special Projects Division.
Boys brings an unrivalled level of Porsche experience having been at JZ Machtech (JZM) for 32 years where he made his name as a leading expert in early 911s from long bonnet cars to 993s. Boys’ expertise promises to strengthen the growing reputation of RPM Technik’s specialised restoration and tuning activities.
While Boys is new to the company, he is no stranger to key RPM Technik personnel. “I’m so happy to be making the move,” says Boys, “having seen what RPM Techink has been achieving in recent years. Ollie (Preston) used to be my apprentice and we have always kept in touch over the years. They have some exciting things going on and a huge reputation within the industry so when the opportunity arose it was hard to turn down.”
Boys started in the motor trade aged 11 working at a family friend’s garage. A fifteen-year career working on different makes gave him a great platform and understanding of the industry before he starting working on Porsche.
Chris prides himself not only for his expertise on Porsche, but also passing on his knowledge in training highly professional Porsche Technicians. Fully trained on Bosch fuel injection systems (especially K-jet and Motronic) as well Porsche electronic systems and diagnosis, Chris’s appointment can only be described as highly beneficial to RPM Technik’s standing as one of the UK’S leading Porsche specialists.
“Chris is a genius when it comes Porsche, says Preston, “especially air-cooled models so it’s great to have him on board. Without him there may not even have been RPM in the first place. His passion, skill and attention to detail were something that I really benefited from as a young technician. I have been able to take these values into what we do here, so it seems fitting he now joins us.”
