Who is the best DAF Technician in Europe? To find out, DAF Trucks organized the fourth staging of its DAF European Technician of the Year competition. The quest to find the best DAF Technician in Europe underlines just how important the intensive training of professional workshop personnel is to DAF Trucks’ aftersales portfolio. No less than 18 countries were involved in the national competition.
The winner? Marin Pavicic (33), who has been working for 15 years at the Walter Aichwalder dealership in Klagenfurt (Austria).
Marin was completely surprised by his victory. “It’s an indescribable feeling” said Marin. “The assignments and tests were very complicated, so I was quite a bit tense. I am very proud that I won the award!” What in his opinion characterises an excellent DAF technician? “You have to challenge yourself every day”, says Marin. “That way, you continue to learn, which makes you a better professional.”
