days until the Auto Glass Technician Olympics by introducing this year's
competitor field with a daily contestant profile.
Binswanger Glass in Hickory, N.C., is sending Doug Harper to the Auto
Glass Technician Olympics in November to try his hand at bringing home
the title of "World's Best Auto Glass Technician." Binswanger
Glass is an AGRSS-registered company.
Married with two children, Harper has been installing auto glass for 23
years and was named "Tech of the Month" by AGRR magazine in
2000. In his spare time, Harper enjoys camping, watching college football
and attending car shows.
He will be installing with SIKA brand adhesives during the competition.
The Auto Glass Technician Olympics, now in its second year, is co-sponsored
by the Independent Glass Association (IGA) and AGRR magazine. The
event follows on the heels of the second annual Auto Glass Replacement
Safety Standard (AGRSS) Conference and both events, along with the National
Windshield Repair Association Conference and the Windshield Repair Olympics
are co-located this year with the Auto Glass Expo @ NACE.
The events will be held November 1-4, 2006 at the Mandalay Bay Convention
