Citroen Estimator of the Year

18 January 2017

We are proud to announce that  one of our estimators John Holmes has been awarded the prestigious ‘Citroen Estimator of the Year’ award. John represented James Alpe in 2016 on a certification course which is key to our continued approval for  Citroen accident repairs. Not only did John excel in his estimating skills, he also had to demonstrate extensive knowledge of the Citroen brand, their total loss avoidance programme, customer satisfaction, active breaking, duty of care and safety.

John was presented with a trophy and voucher by Simon Taylor – Regional Bodyshop Development Manager for Citroen. ‘This is a great accolade to both John and James Alpe’ said Simon  ‘James Alpes are one of the first independent bodyshops to win this award and it was a pleasure to present the trophy and voucher to John’. James Alpe value the importance of their manufacturer approvals and continually invest heavily in continuous improvement in all aspects of their operation. ‘Training has always been considered a crucial area for us’ said James Alpe ‘In order to retain our valuable manufacturer approvals it is vital that we continue to invest in equipment, training and technology’.
