An Automotive Industry Blog by Rick Daley, President of Hoist Hanger
The future for the automotive repair industry is increasingly becoming dependent on electronics and computerization. So, of course we must have highly trained technicians in order to service not only today’s vehicles, but those coming in the next few years.
Following along, the need to hire and develop qualified technicians requires ingenuity, hard work, and a plan. And we need to provide our technicians with the opportunity to earn remuneration consistent with the level of training they will be required to make.
We need inviting, clean work environments. We need proper tools and equipment, we need engaged management, we need understanding from ownership that the fixed operations are the backbone of the organization.
Today’s vehicles may be lighter in overall weight, but the wheels & tires are becoming larger and heavier. A highly skilled technician may be a diagnostic whiz; but he/she may be injured in a moment trying to lift a 75 lb. wheel/tire combination. We can minimize the risk of injury by providing an ergonomic solution to this problem … by fitting your lifts with Hoist Hangers.
