Award-winning service at Road Trucks
Operators can be assured of an award-winning service at Road Trucks; the workshop foreman at their Omagh depot, Paul Conroy, recently won the ‘Technician of the Year’ at the Export & Freight Transport & Logistics Awards.
Paul, who has been a technician at the Road Trucks depot since October 2012, has over twenty years’ experience in the industry and is an outstanding team player and technically gifted mechanic.
Having worked in England as well as Northern Ireland, he was elevated to workshop foreman just two years after joining the company; a promotion that reflects his ability and commitment to his profession.
Eager to develop in order to provide the very best service for the company’s customers, Paul has gained a myriad of qualifications during this time including an HND in automotive studies. He is also Road Trucks Limited’s Scania escalation technician.
This appointment saw him attend formal training at the Scania factory in Sweden including all aspects of repair and maintenance on the Next Generation of Scania trucks; this is a hugely sought after qualification and one that reflects the confidence management place in his dedication and ability. Since completing the training Paul has been at the cutting edge of Next Generation Scania truck support right across Northern Ireland, a commitment that he has relished and one which he has excelled in. Extremely active outside work too, Paul has completed a number of charity bicycle rides throughout Ireland and as far as Sligo and Athlone. For the past eight years, he has been instrumental in organising the annual Altamuskin 5-mile road race in support of his local community centre and raising money for a wide range of other charities.
Additionally, he has taken part in numerous 5km and 10km runs and completed the Omagh half marathon.
