GLASSPRO’S DANNY KALE NAMED “WORLD’S BEST AUTO GLASS TECHNICIAN”
Charleston, SC --- Danny Kale, Manager of Glasspro’s Summerville auto glass center, recently earned the title of “World’s Best Auto Glass Technician” at the 8th Annual International Auto Glass Technician Olympics held in Tampa, FL. Competitors from all over the world were judged on ten different criteria including vehicle inspection, professionalism, proper equipment and tool usage, windshield removal and installation technique and customer service skills.
Mr. Kale has worked in the glass industry for over 15 years and credited Glasspro’s extensive training with helping him win the Gold Medal against the best auto glass technicians in the world. Each technician had two hours to select the appropriate tools, prepare their vehicle, cut out the windshield and put it back in without breaking it, properly explain each step and correctly perform post-installation and clean-up procedures.
The annual international competition is open to any auto glass technician with at least one year of experience in a bona fide operating auto glass company. Technicians must follow the current Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS) to compete. In addition to bragging rights as the “World’s Best Auto Glass Technician”, Mr. Kale also received $10,000, along with a gold medal and trophy, as the first place winner.
According to Mr. Kale, “Preparation, practice and a great mentor helped me compete at my best, and I feel very fortunate to be named the winner against such a strong field of auto glass technicians from around the world.”
