Contestant Close Up: Jonathan Matthews

AGRR magazine and the GlassBYTEs.com daily email newsletter are marking the days until the Auto Glass Technician Olympics by introducing this year's competitor field with a daily contestant profile.

Newport, Ore., and the crew at Hummingbird Auto Glass will be cheering for Jonathan Matthews as he tries his hand at being named the "World's Best Auto Glass Technician" at the Auto Glass Technician Olympics in November.

Hummingbird Auto Glass is an AGRSS-registered company and Matthews, who is married, will have that advantage in his pocket, along with 24 years of experience.

He will be using SIKA brand adhesives at 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 Center in Las Vegas.
