The Volvo dealership at Crimplesham, Hylton Gott, has become joint leaders among the car manufacturer’s UK dealer network for employing five level 4 mster technicians.
Level 4 is the highest level of Volvo expertise that can be achieved. Hylton Gott now sits at the top, alongside a Cambridge Volvo dealership, in employing five level 4 master technicians.
Andrew Kavaney, 59, Robert John, 42, Craig Sladden, 28, Jamie Osler, 26 and Ashley Cook, 25, have all demonstrated the utmost levels of dedication, hard work and outstanding skills to achieve the highest accolade available to a technician throughout the Volvo network.
Workshop duo Ashley Cook and Craig Sladden were the latest employees to achieve Volvo master technician status. Ashley, achieving the status in April and Craig in May, are both long-serving staff at the dealership having joined through the Volvo apprenticeship programme around ten years ago in 2003 and 2005.
Also joining through the Volvo apprenticeship programme was Jamie Osler in 2003 whilst in the same year, having worked his way up from level 1, Volvo technician Robert John is now workshop manager for the dealership, as well as a level 4 master tech.
Andrew Kavaney is the dealership’s longest-serving master technician, joining the garage in 1988 and will be 60 years old this September.
Hylton Gott dealer principal Stephen Tilburn commented on the dealership’s achievement: “We’re very proud to have five Volvo master technicians, they are brilliant assets to the team and it’s fantastic that they are able to be recognised for their hard work and achievements. Robert, Andrew, Jamie, Ashley and Craig’s expertise is second to none. They’ve shown great commitment to the dealership, its customers and the Volvo brand, working to the highest of levels day in and day out.”
