Speaking about the finalists, NTDA Chief Executive Stefan Hay said: “I’m pleased to say, that this year, we’ve had a great response, in particular, to the individual awards for REACT Commercial Tyre Technician of the Year and Apprentice Tyre Technician of the Year. Lots of different companies entered the Tyre Retailer of the Year too including two of our smaller tyre distributor members who only joined the NTDA this year, so it’s great to see them and many other independents in the final. We are also, as always, really delighted to have the support of our sponsors this year, especially as many of them have now supported us for many years. With over 550 guests already booked for the dinner and over 230 for the Tyre Industry Conference, sponsored by Maritime Cargo Services, which precedes the dinner, I’m sure our 90thannual dinner will be absolutely fantastic and a pivotal moment in the Association’s history!”
