Time is running out for garages to nominate candidates for the first-ever REPXPERT Awards, which will feature during Schaeffler’s brand new national REPXPERT Conference.

Garages have until Friday 10th May to put forward potential candidates for the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ and the ‘Extra Mile’ awards.

The ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award will reward the most promising apprentice technician in the sector. Meanwhile, the ‘Extra Mile’ award looks to highlight a technician or business owner who has gone above and beyond normal expectations for either their customers or staff. Technicians can also nominate their bosses, if they believe they have done something extra special in support of their staff or the wider community.

A third award, the ‘Workshop of the Year’ award will be bestowed on the garage that has been judged to have used their REPXPERT membership most efficiently.

“By nominating a technician, business owner or apprentice, you will be helping to highlight the very best in our industry” said Matt Selby, Sales and Marketing Director at Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket (UK) Ltd.

“Our new REPXPERT Conference will showcase both the challenges our industry faces and how the people within it are using this as motivation to achieve at the highest possible level.” Matt continued. “Through the nominations we receive for the REPXPERT Awards, we can acknowledge the contribution of the best workshops and technicians operating in the sector.”

The closing date for nominations is Friday 10th May. To nominate somebody for a REPXPERT Award, go to: https://oeparts.typeform.com/to/FK9RyZ4P.
