Atlas Copco Philippines Holds 2009 Technolympics

Laguna, Philippines, June 24, 2009 --( Participants attended a challenging, hands-on, competitive 2-day event called the 2009 Atlas Copco Philippines Technolympics last June 5 & 6, 2009 at the head office at the Laguna Technopark. The participants were Product Engineers from Atlas Copco Philippines Compressor Technique’s major divisions: Oil-Free Air, Industrial Air, Portable Air, Specialty Rental, and Aftermarket Sales.

This year’s Technolympics was divided into 2 parts. The first part covered the introduction and a skills-refresh workshop highlighting the effective use of technology in the sales process. The second part was the competition proper - a sales simulation contest, where the company’s top management acted as the customers in close-to-real life sales situations.

A cut above the rest

At the end of two days, Rainier Javier, Portable Air Product Engineer, stood out and won the top 2009 Technolympics honors. Toribio Amoto, from Atlas Copco’s Mindanao operations, came in at second.

Jonnie Regis, CT General Manager, praised Rainier saying, “We were pleasantly surprised with Rainier’s performance today. From the previous years’ Technolympics editions, he showed a lot of improvement. His presentation blew us away!”
