Berjaya Auto Philippines recently concluded its search for the best technicians among its dealership network. The winners will go on to represent Philippines in the Asia Pacific round of MazTech to be held next year in Shanghai, China.
For 2015, Mazda Quezon Avenue once again emerged as the champion with the tandem of Cris Sta. Maria and Garry Ambida leading from a total of 22 technicians who vied for the top honors in this year’s Mazda Technician Contest Philippines or MazTech. This is the second year in a row that Mazda Quezon Avenue has topped the annual competition.
After 10 grueling hours of tests and technical evaluation involving practical problem solving and trouble-shooting last December 5 at the Mazda PH PDI Center – Ace Logistics Warehouse in Calamba, Laguna, Sta. Maria and Ambida gained top scores and were chosen to represent the Philippines in the Asia & Oceania MazTech Competition slated for second quarter of 2016.
“This is the second time we have conducted the MazTech Competition for our dealerships and their top technicians and we are happy to see that there has been marked improvement in their over-all skills as problem-solvers,” said Steven Tan, president and chief executive officer of Berjaya Auto Philippines. “Mazda Philippines is committed to delivering the best after-sales service for our customers. By continually engaging the technicians from among our dealerships in this structured competition, we continue to elevate the quality and standards of our service.” Coming in second to the place was the team from Mazda Dagupan, with third place going to Mazda Tarlac.
Proud of the level of competition in this year’s MazTech, Ramil De Vera, Mazda Philippines general manager for aftersales said, “The skills of our technical team are continuously improving and seeing our provincial dealers field in world-class technicians in this competition is proof that Mazda customers are receiving the same quality of service whichever Mazda dealership they bring their cars to.”
Mazda Philippines’ current product line-up includes the Mazda2 sub-compact sedan and hatchback, the Mazda3 SkyActive compact sedan and hatchback, the Mazda6 executive sedan and wagon, the CX-5 compact sport utility vehicle, the CX-9 seven-seater SUV, the MX-5 two-seater sports roadster and the BT-50 pick-up truck.
