The team at TechPlus value the importance of properly trained technicians in the tire repair industry. As well as working closely with TECH’s Alan Bithell to offer training courses to their customers, they are also certified members of the ITIA (Irish Tyre Industry Association) and have worked tirelessly to highlight the need for training courses and repair standards to ensure safety on the roads.

Managing Director of TechPlus, Hugh Brady, and his team have worked closely with the ITIA and their partners across Ireland for many years with the objective to create best practice guidelines for all remits of the automotive market including adopting professional tire repair standards.

One such occasion was the ITIA 2020 Conference held earlier this year. TECH’s Sales & Marketing Manager, Pamela Rainey & European Business Development Consultant, Alan Bithell, were delighted to join Hugh to support his work within this organization. In conjunction with Hugh, Alan Bithell, who is also recognised as the Chairman of the British Standard steering panel for the tire repair standard BS AU 159g, has continued to work closely with the ITIA in an advisory capacity to introduce tire repair standards and guidelines into Ireland. During the conference, Alan discussed the extensive training programmes offered by TECH Europe and also showcased a selection of TECH’s leading tire repair materials, explaining their stringent manufacturing process to ensure they provide safe repairs which adhere to industry standards BS AU 159 and ECE 108/109.
