Here at Ring, we have been supporting the automotive aftermarket for more than 40 years. So sponsoring Top Technician 2016 was a no-brainer for us.
Top Technician is an annual competition created in 2002 by Aftermarket Magazine to reward the best vehicle technicians in the UK.
We know that top mechanics are committed to raising standards and to delivering the best possible service, which we believe should be endorsed and recognised. Just like the professionals taking part, we are also committed to raising standards in the workshop, by developing trade tools that have been designed to help mechanics and technicians to be the best they can be.
Here’s a few ways in which our products support technicians across the UK and beyond.
Bulb technology is at the heart of our business and is supported by unique product testing facilities. Standard, Longer Life, Performance and more recently Xenon HID bulbs all feature within the Ring bulb range. The flagship Xenon130, as an example, continues to outperform its competitors and put 130% more light on the road.
Retaining our position at the forefront of innovation – which includes utilising the latest ‘Chip on Board’ (COB) technology for superior output – Ring offers an extensive range of award-winning inspection lamps. Ring’s inspection tools have been built to last, and have light sources to suit most work spaces, whether compact, heavy duty, high power or intended for inspection.
Importantly, every item developed is designed with the professional, working environment in mind. This includes the recent additions to Ring’s MAGflex and Ergo ranges – the MAGflex Twist and Ergo Robust.
Assessing the need for replacement or recharge, Ring offers an extensive range of Battery Analysers that accurately diagnose and repair faults. These help professionals get the complete picture of a battery’s health.
Our SmartChargePro is two tools in one. It has a multi-chemistry function that adjusts the charge to precisely match the specific battery type. Acting as a battery support unit, this product provides constant battery voltage for when vehicle diagnostic equipment is connected and requires power.
Compact and heavy duty, Ring’s range of power packs is capable of jump starting multiple cars, and commercial vehicles – including buses, trucks and agricultural vehicles – from one charge. With safety features including reverse polarity, short circuit and anti-spike protection, our power packs are designed to be safe and easy to use.
Entries for Top Technician are now closed with semi-finals due to take place in mid-July. However, tickets are still available for Top Technician Live, which is a one day interactive training event, allowing technicians to learn from some of the leading companies in the automotive aftermarket. The day will feature classroom and practical sessions as well as presentations from industry experts and panel discussions. To order tickets visit the Top Technician website.
Top Technician Live will also feature the announcement of the winner of Top Technician 2016.
