Technician of the Year Award for Scania Trucks’ Paul Conroy

Paul Conroy from Scania Road Trucks Ltd in Omagh has been voted Technician of the Year 2018 at the annual Export & Freight Transport & Logistics Awards.

The award is presented to the best technician who offers unparalleled servicing skills, interpersonal relations, and recommendations.

Paul picked up the much coveted award from Steve Turton, Managing Director, BPW Limited, at a glittering ceremony at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast which was attended by around 700 guests from all sectors of the transport and logistics industry and compered by BBC NI sports presenter Joel Taggart.

Organised by the Hillsborough based publishers of Export & Freight magazine, 4SM (NI) Ltd, the event, now in its 17th year, is Ireland’s premier platform of recognition for those operating in the industry; it celebrates all the hard work, determination, and ongoing investment that make the industry what it is today.

The awards judges praised Paul for “his dedication to get things right first time, always trying to go the extra mile for his customers, possessing excellent technical and all round transport compliance knowledge and investing both his own time and money in furthering his career.”

Paul’s attitude to life is that you must be ready to diversify, embrace change and be ready for new truck technologies even before the new trucks hit the roads.

He recently became the Scania escalation engineer for Northern Ireland after completing training in Sweden on the latest Scania product range. “This,” said the judges, “shows the respect and regard he is held within Scania and the Road Trucks business.”
