Techna Glass to Hold AGTO Qualifier This Saturday
Techna Glass is holding its own "feeder" competition for the Fourth Annual Auto Glass Technician Competition (AGTO) this Saturday, July 12, at the Rocky Mountain Raceway in Salt Lake City. The event will serve as a pre-qualification competition for the AGTO, which will be held November 7-8, 2008, at the Mandalay Bay ConventionCenter in Las Vegas. (CLICK HERE for more information on the AGTO.)
The company chose its contestants via a company-wide application process in which the top six applicants were picked based on experience, customer service skills and quality of their work.
Bob Beranek and Jay Beranek of Automotive Glass Consultants Inc. in Sun Prairie, Wis., will judge the competition, and judging criteria is based on the same as that of the AGTO. (CLICK HERE for the criteria.)
The first- and second-place winners of the Techna Glass competition will receive an all-expense paid trip to Las Vegas to compete in the AGTO. The first-place winner also will receive $1,000 in tools of his choice. In addition, Techna Glass has its own "Techna Glass Cup," on which it plans to engrave first-place winners' names each year-beginning with this competition.
The second- and third-place winners will receive $750 and $500, respectively, in tools. The third-place winner also will serve as an alternate in the event that first- or second-place is unable to attend the AGTO.
"I was very impressed with the 2007 AGTO," says Troy Mason, owner and president of Techna Glass. "It was our first year participating and I have to admit that it exceeded all of my expectations. I was so excited that I immediately started planning for our own qualifying event for 2008."
