Tenneco’s Technology Tour Hits Toronto

Tenneco’s popular Tenneco Technology Tour (T3) and Monroe Ride and Drive technical training experiences attracted more than 100 aftermarket professionals to its Toronto event, one of three held recently in Ontario. With Hamilton and Barrie also on the agenda, the T3 crew worked hard to meet its scheduling commitments.

Perennial favourite trainer Sidney Gay was on hand to give the classroom portion some spice, with the helpful addition of clear acrylic training aids such as a four-foot-tall shock absorber.

“He makes it fun for everybody and he makes it understandable for the techs,” says Jim Bintas, co-owner of jobber Spark Auto Electric in Toronto, Ont. “He put it all together and showed why it’s important to look at the details on ride control and suspension.”

Bintas says customers he hosted at the event found it very educational too. “If the tour comes back, they said they would be interested in attending again.”

Tenneco’s program for North American automotive technicians and parts professionals was expected to reach more than 8,000 participants over the course of a nearly 40-city schedule.

The Monroe Ride & Drive/T3 tour is scheduled to visit Moncton, N.B., September 8, the last Canadian date. It hit eight Canadian centres in all.
