Ryder Recognizes BorgWarner’s Long-term Support of Tech Competition

RyderTechPhotoAs one of the longest-supporting suppliers of the annual national competition, BorgWarner was presented with Ryder’s Appreciation Award at the competition this summer.

“It’s been an honor to be invited to participate every year,” says Randy Andis, Director of Aftermarket Operations. “We’ve been part of practically every Top Tech competition with Ryder—the only heavy duty electrical components manufacturer to participate year after year.”
 
Andis says the award demonstrates the close trust and partnership the two companies share.
 
“Ryder trusts the Delco Remy brand—and that’s about our people as much as it is our
products,” he explains.

Sponsored Test Station
BorgWarner sponsored and judged the Delco Remy branded electrical diagnostics station where contestants had to identify and resolve a heavy duty electrical component issue.
 
“We give them everything they need to diagnose and solve the issue,” says Brian Thompson, National Fleet Manager who designs and organizes the station. “We evaluate their success on both the sequence of steps and the speed with which they execute those steps.”

About the Ryder Competition
Eligible participants are selected from Ryder’s team of nearly 6,000 U.S. and Canadian-based technicians. They are measured on technical training qualifications, outstanding customer service performance and quality workmanship. The Top Tech final competition consists of 10 rigorous hands-on skill tests, including vehicle electronics, preventive maintenance and air conditioning.
 
A Natural Extension of BorgWarner Training
BorgWarner’s participation in competitions like the Ryder’s Top Tech is really just an extension of the training we provide to customers throughout the year.
 
“We regularly provide training so our customers have the most up-to-date skills and know-how to address problems, minimize maintenance costs and increase time on the road,” Andis says. “At the Ryder competition, we see what the culmination of years of training produces: these techs are highly skilled, the best of the best—and it’s exciting to watch them.”
