Technician Jon is one of the world's best

A TECHNICIAN working for Lloyd Ltd Isuzu in Dumfries has been named in the world's top ten.

Jon Turner has been in Thailand representing Isuzu’s dealer network for Great Britain at the global manufacturer’s competition to find the world’s finest Isuzu technicians.

The “Grand Prix” event took place at the IMPACT Arena in Bangkok and involved a series of challenging tasks testing the expertise of Jon and others from 22 countries.
Jon competed in the Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) category and had to demonstrate knowledge, experience and expertise in a highly-pressured environment.
Commenting on his top ten finish, he said: “This was an incredibly exciting opportunity, but very daunting too. To be competing on a world-wide stage like this was a real challenge, but I knew that my 20-plus years of experience of servicing and repairing vehicles would stand me in good stead.
“What an incredible experience and opportunity.”
Stuart Dalton, dealer principal at Lloyd Ltd Dumfries, added: “We are incredibly proud of what Jon has achieved – winning the GB round of the competition and coming tenth in the global event. The fact that someone from our dealership has represented the whole of the GB Isuzu dealer network at this global event is a real honour and a true reflection of Jon’s impressive skills.”
