May 5, 2022—Auto-Wares Group of Companies has announced that their technician of the year is Joe Stewart. Stewart will go on to represent the companies at the National Alliance Technician of the Year competition. 

According to a press release, Stewart is the Shop Foreman at The Brighton Garage in Brighton, Michigan. The garage has been an Auto Value Certified Service Center since April 2021.

Brighton Garage is in The Detroit Auto Garage family of shops.

“Joe is constantly growing and training as a technician and has been throughout his career. He actively trains our new team members, pushing them to obtain professional success and pride with ASE Certifications," said Daniel Groen, Regional Manager for The Detroit Garage in the press release. "This persistent pursuit of auto repair knowledge and growth is some of what sets Joe apart from his peers. Hybrid, electrical, and diesel vehicles do not deter Joe from the industry but inspire him to gain the expertise to lead his facility, and someday multiple facilities, to the success this challenging industry can achieve.”

Stewart will join other finalists at the National Alliance Technician of the Year competition from July 11 to July 14 in Detroit, Michigan. Finalists will take a live custom ASE Technician of the Year exam, and a winner will be determined based on the highest score. 

Auto-Wares Group of Companies is an aftermarket automotive distribution company headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and serves markets in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
