September 16, 2009

Belron US currently is holding divisional "Best of Belron" competitions across the country to pick the top technicians from its 11 regions. Technicians who compete are judged on quality, safety and efficiency while demonstrating windshield replacements, body glass replacements, windshield repair and customer service skills, according to a press release from the company.

The competitions are held every two years in preparation for parent company Belron's international Best of Belron Competition, which will be held in 2010.

Two technicians have already earned their spots in the U.S. national finals. John Rhine was named first in a competition on August 29 in Pico Rivera, Calif., and John Nordstrom won a competition in Arvada, Colo., on September 12.

The company also has competitions scheduled for September 19 in Orlando, Fla., October 3 in Milwaukee, October 17 in Phoenix, October 24 in Columbus, Ohio, October 31 in Pittston, Pa., November 7 in San Antonio, November 14 in Sacramento, Calif., November 21 in Norcross, Ga., and December 5 in Henderson, Nev.

The winners from the regional competitions will compete in the national competition in January in Orlando. The winner of the U.S. competition will win $10,000 and a trip to compete in the Best of Belron competition in June 2010 in France. The international winner will win a year's salary.

Each regional competition includes a knowledge and customer service component that takes place the night before, with the Saturday event beginning at 10 a.m. with the vehicle glass repair and replacement portions.
