Australian team named ‘Scania Top Team’

Scania’s Australian workshop team, ‘the Kangaroos’, from Prestons has been named the ‘Scania Top Team’.

Top Team is a competition and training event arranged by Scania. Ten teams from all over the world competed in the final on the weekend, and Scania’s Prestons workshop near Sydney came out on top.

Although the Australian team had a tough start at the first station, their scores improved drastically to secure the win in the end, with Belguim’s Torhout workshop finishing second the Netherlands’ Veghel workshop placing third.

“This is a dream come true,” said team leader Christopher Nobbs. “Everyone on the team put forth an amazing effort.”

Scania’s President and CEO, Leif Östling, was at the final. “Dedicated staff is the key to a successful service business,” he said. “The teams that competed in this year’s Scania Top Team final are all good examples of this dedication. There are, however, many skilled service technician teams at Scania workshops all over the world; they pushed the finalists to excel and thus truly earn the title of Top Team.”

This year’s Top Team event attracted more than 6000 service technicians in 46 countries. In addition to promoting the vehicle service technician profession, Scania Top Team is a competition with the goal of developing best practices for working on Scania vehicles.

The first Top Team competition was held in Sweden in 1989 and since then the event has grown substantially. This year’s Top Team was the eighth instalment of the event.
