“From the diagnosis of electrical problems to evaluating exhaust systems to recommending the best parts – technicians play a major role in enhancing a vehicle’s performance,” said Mike Harvey, brand manager for WIX Filters. “We are thrilled to recognize Brant for the second-annual Best Tech award for his distinguished career built on outstanding customer service as a committed advisor and resource and for his dedication to learning as vehicles become more sophisticated with a wider range of repairs and maintenance work.”

Brant is an ASE Master Certified Technician and WIX Expert-Level Certified Technician, as well as Best Tech finalist in 2011. During his 28-year career, Brant has serviced Prowlers and Lamborghinis and recharged the AC system on a LifeFlight Helicopter. He has a passion for staying up-to-date on the latest technologies and training. Brant is also an active member of the community and supports Habitat for Humanity, the Special Olympics and youth activities.

“With complicated systems that make up automobiles today, it is imperative that technicians provide the highest-quality service to ensure that drivers and passengers are safe on roadways,” said Brant. “I am truly delighted to win this award not only for myself but for everyone at Joe’s Tire & Auto Service. From our technicians, owners to service writers, we hold the shop to the highest standards by encouraging ongoing education, implementing top-level industry standards and providing excellent customer service which drives returning customers.”
