International SuperTech Day is June 30, 2017
A special day commemorating door systems technicians has been set for June 30, 2017, as part of an international campaign to recognize and honor professionals in the field. Door companies will be encouraged to treat door technicians to some form of activity that will serve as a reminder that they are the key to maintaining profitability and customer satisfaction in all aspects of the trade.
SuperTech Day was proposed and endorsed during the 2008 Door Industry Congress produced by IDA. The event was successfully conducted for the first time in June 2008.
“This is a great way for us to expedite the growing recognition that our installers and service technicians are the backbone of our industry,” said IDA President Randy Oliver. “We envision this event as expanding to promote the importance of our products to the general public, and to establish that professionals are best qualified to work with these products in a way that maximizes security, public safety and customer satisfaction.”
IDEA President Joe Chisholm echoed those remarks. “The campaign to recognize industry professionalism has consistently gained momentum in recent years,” Chisholm said. “International SuperTech Day is a logical next step in this emerging trend.”
The event’s purpose is to recognize door and access systems technicians around the world for their contributions to the success of door dealerships, and to the value and professionalism of the industry. Dealers will be encouraged to take part by paying tribute to their crews. (See Related Article on “Ways to Celebrate SuperTech Day.”)
