Open to the more than 450 Fix Auto staff in the UK, the applicants were narrowed down to a shortlist of 18 expert technicians who underwent an in-depth evaluation process.
Following two days of intense technical testing, developed with assistance from Fix Network’s global partners AkzoNobel, 3M and Thatcham Research, the top two in M.E.T, Paint and Panel were selected. These finalists will attend the Fix Auto UK Conference in October where the winners will be announced.
