Hino announces 2017 National Skills Contest winners

Hino Australia has tested its most skilled parts, service and sales employees at the 2017 Hino National Skills Contest in the company’s Sydney headquarters on 24 August.

Out of 18 contestants, the 2017 National Skills Contest was won by WA Hino’s Brandon Healey – Service, FRM Hino Hobart’s Luke Bennett – Sales, and West Orange Motor’s Tom Stewart – Parts. It was Stewart’s second victory in a row.

Hino Australia Chairman and CEO, Steve Lotter, spoke of the importance of the competition to Hino Australia, which is the accumulation of five months intense competition. “At Hino, we pride ourselves on providing total support to our customers and their businesses while continuously building trust.

“One way we execute this is by having a skilled dealer network – it is essential for the continued success of Hino Australia that our staff continue to provide world-class service and knowledge to our customers.” 

Sales and parts contestants reportedly demonstrated their skills in role-play scenarios while the service technicians were tested on their diagnostic and technical skills. A ‘Sale of the Century’ quiz further tested the knowledge of the sales participants while parts contestants displayed their knowledge in identifying genuine versus non-genuine parts. Through a series of hypothetical exercises, service contestants exhibited their diagnostic and componentry knowledge.

According to Hino, the winner in each category – parts, service and sales – will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Japan in October to watch the Hino Japan Skills Contest.
