The winners of the Pilkington Clear Advantage Auto Glass Technician Competition (AGTO) were named earlier this month in West Palm Beach, Fla., where Auto Glass Week™ was held. Leading the circle of winners were two AGSC Master Technicians and an AGSC Certified Technician.
Master Technician Ben Rorick of TechnaGlass in Orem, Utah, took the gold for the AGTO large-size company division, while fellow Master Technician Kody Allan of OC GlassCraft in Tustin, Calif., took the gold for the AGTO regular-size company division. Each was awarded a prize of $5,000.
The bronze in the AGTO went to Timothy Beane, a Certified Technician with Windshield Centers LLC in Greensboro, N.C.
The AGTO judges also recognized Jason Martin, a Certified Technician with Wisefly Auto Glass in Snellville, Ga., with the Ingenuity Award for his custom adjustable dash cover with steering wheel cover. This was designed to protect the vehicle’s dash and vents from debris and damage.
