AUBURN, Maine — A pair of VIP Tires & Service auto technicians, Kenny Bridges and Brian Thibodeau, have earned World Class Technician status, signifying they have achieved Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification in 22 specialty areas.
World Class status is a distinction achieved by fewer than 0.2 percent of the nearly 900,000 auto technicians active in the U.S., VIP Tires said.
"We are extremely proud of Kenny and Brian," said VIP Tires President and CEO John Quirk. "Earning World Class Technician status is a big accomplishment requiring additional time and dedication outside of work given the demanding nature of the testing.
"These two individuals represent the best of the best for VIP, and we know that their high level of knowledge, skill and commitment will be an asset to our customers."
