Technician from AM100 group to represent UK at European Skills Competition


A senior technician in an AM100 dealer group has beaten his peers to win the prestige of representing the UK at the European Skills Competition in Germany this September.

Liam Hendry, who works at the Macklin Motors Hyundai dealership in Dunfermline, which is owned by Vertu Motors, was victorious in the annual British Skills Olympics.

Having only qualified at the expert level in April 2024, Hendry competed against twelve expert and master technicians from various motor retailers to demonstrate exceptional skills in challenging diagnostic scenarios, component testing, and product knowledge tests over two days of intense competition.

Vertu Motors chief executive Robert Forrester said the success at the British Skills Olympics highlights the high level of skill and dedication within Vertu’s team and is a testament to the quality of training and development at Hyundai and across the Vertu Motors group.

“Liam’s win is particularly impressive given his recent qualification, and we are excited to see him represent the UK at the European competition,” said Forrester.
