Top technician reaches new heights

A van technician from Wolsey Volkswagen in Ipswich is celebrating after reaching the top of his profession.

Matt Lankester (39) from Martlesham, recently gained his master technician status after completing an intensive on-the-job training and assessment programme through the Volkswagen Academy.

Specialising in commercial vehicles, Matt will pass on his expertise to his colleagues within the growing van division at Wolsey.

Matt joined the Sproughton Road retailer as a qualified technician having formerly specialised in trucks for 10 years, from apprentice level, with Mercedes Benz. His commercial vehicle expertise uniquely placed him in the ideal position to develop the business to meet customers’ needs.

As part of his graduation, Matt was taken on a two day trip to the Volkswagen factory in Hanover. Commenting on this course, Matt said: “We understand the importance of keeping customers’ vans fully operational, therefore the increased knowledge I have gained from my training will ensure we can offer the very best service to our customers.

“It was an added bonus to be taken to Hanover and a most enjoyable two days.”

Wolsey Van Centre brand manager, Tim Hargraves, added: “Matt is thoroughly professional in his job and this qualification is reward for his efforts.

“His colleagues will certainly benefit from working with a technician of this calibre.”
