Roland DG Corp. announced the winners of its Global SE Awards 2018 competition. The April 23-25 event at Roland DG headquarters in Hamamatsu, Japan, tested the product knowledge and technical skills of top service engineers, which included 28 finalists from around the world that won regional contests. This year’s competition pitted finalists against each other in two categories: inkjet printers, and the new 3D devices category which included dental milling machines.
The winner in the Inkjet Printer category was Mark Johnson from New Zealand representing Aarque Group Ltd.
This year was Roland DG’s third Global SE Awards competition to date, with similar contests held in 2013 and 2015. In addition to recognizing the abilities of service engineers both regionally and globally, the competition helps motivate the SEs to further improve their skills and raise the standards of Roland DG Care, the company’s comprehensive customer service and support program.
A total of 778 SEs took part in this year’s SE Awards competition, the highest participation rate ever.
