Each year for the last 10 years, the Pilkington Clear Advantage Auto Glass Technician Competition have been held during Auto Glass Week. This competition gives technicians from around the world an opportunity to showcase their skills in replacing damaged auto glass. Overall performance is judged on their procedures, cleanliness, safety, and customer engagement. While this is a competition first and foremost, it also provides competitors with a chance to observe other auto glass professionals at work, and learn from their technique. Granted, the real reason one chooses to compete is to stand a chance at being crowned the “World’s Best Auto Glass Technician”.
This year, one of our own bravely entered the fray! Timothy Beane from our Greensboro location in North Carolina competed amongst some of the best and took home the bronze! Being amongst the top 3 best auto glass technicians of 2017 is a huge professional accomplishment, not to mention a major personal one. Did we mention this was his first time competing in an auto glass technician competition? He was the only competing technician to use a fiber wire to cut out the windshield, and the only one to use the Solo Neo to set a new one. He did a fantastic job, and all of us here at Windshield Centers are incredibly proud of him! Who knows, next year he could find himself in the top position. Revel in your accomplishment, Tim. We’re lucky to have you as part of the Windshield Centers family!
