NTDA Chief Executive and official Stefan Hay added: “Autogem has done a terrific job in organising this event. TPMS is a very specialist area and growing in importance. It’s an essential tool for motorists and the technicians themselves, and to see the expertise first hand has been phenomenal from independents through to national companies.
“TPMS systems have been developed to assist us and there is a certain amount of ignorance when it comes to them, but by raising awareness through events like this, it will come to the forefront more.”
Jon Dennis, Regional Director at Micheldever Group, said: “Something like this has been long overdue to be honest, and Prashant and the Autogem team have done an excellent job in bringing TPMS to the forefront of people’s conversations. Two of our team made the finals which is impressive considering the amount of technicians who entered, so I’m very proud of them both.
“TPMS is safety critical and part of the MOT test. It is important to raise awareness, which is what Autogem have done so well here.”
Prashant concluded: “TPMS Expert was two to three years in the making and a great deal of hard work went into making this concept a reality, but it was worth all of the effort when looking at the final.
“It gave me an immense sense of pride to see so many talented technicians taking such passion in their work and demonstrating so much ability when it comes to TPMS. We wanted to raise awareness and standards when it comes to the issue and remind the aftermarket about the importance of TPMS as a vital safety feature.
“It’s safe to say that we achieved our goal and we now want to build on this event for the future.”
