ASE declares 'National Automotive Service Professionals Week'
The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has declared June 10-16, 2013, as National Automotive Service Professionals Week to honor the commitment and dedication of automotive, truck and collision technicians, along with parts specialists and other support professionals who serve the motoring public.
This is the eighth consecutive year for this ASE recognition, which was launched in 2005 and builds on the success of Automotive Service Professionals Day established in 2001.
“ASE created National Automotive Service Professionals Week to recognize the men and women who service and maintain the highly complex vehicles upon which we depend so much for our day-to-day transportation,” says Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO. “This event acknowledges that skill and dedication, and ASE is proud to help recognize these individuals for their commitment to their customers, their craft and the American economy.”
The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence was established in 1972 as a non-profit organization to help improve the quality of automotive service and repair through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive technicians and parts specialists.
Today, more than 360,000 ASE-certified professionals work in dealerships, independent shops, collision repair shops, auto parts stores, fleets, schools and colleges throughout the country.
