TECH’s “Gone Walkabout” To Do Some Training Down Under!

TECH, the flagship tire and wheel brand in the TRC’s portfolio, has always been involved in setting standards for proper tire repair. This includes standards of training curriculum on all facets of performing a proper tire repair on everything from passenger cars to earth movers. Our name stands as an acronym for this type of training … Teach Each Customer How. TECH has trained thousands of repair technicians worldwide by working in conjunction with our direct customers and distribution partners.

Repco LogoTECH recently conducted this type of training in Melbourne, Australia with our distribution partner Repco.

Repco, is the number one automotive retailer in Australia. The Repco brand stands for ‘Authenticity’ derived from having quality products which have earned the trust of customers for more than 95 years.

Repco’s distribution system ensures customers are provided the right parts at the right time. With more than 400 stores, no other competitor can boast such a wide store footprint.

The training lasted for two days, and it involved both hands on repair experiences and classroom teaching. 15 Repco trainees received professional training from TECH instructor Francis Siaw. Francis presented a variety of repair techniques, ranging from how to identify the type and severity of the injury incurred by the tire, to demonstrating proper installation of the complete line of TECH tire & wheel repair solutions, including the top selling and industry gold standard Uni-Seal Repair.

After the training, Mark Kolpin, Repco National Accounts Manager said “Not only does TECH make the highest quality tire repairs in the industry, they have developed the highest standards of technician training. TECH’s combination of classroom and hands on training helps repair technicians understand the “why” behind the repair process.” In response to Mark ‘s feedback, TECH VP of Sales Lou Calabrese said, “Repco has been a great Partner. They invest the resources necessary to have their repair technicians properly trained.”

Repco and their customers Trust TECH for the highest quality tire & wheel repair products and equally important training on their appropriate installation. That trust is built on a combined 175 years of experience the TECH/Repco partnership represent.
