MARIETTA – On Wednesday, January 11, 2017, Mayor Steve Tumlin presented the City of Marietta's Fleet Maintenance Division and its supervisor, Scott Lawler, with a plaque stating they have received the highly coveted National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence's Blue Seal Shop Designation.
The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence is an independent non-profit organization which has worked to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service by testing and certifying automotive professionals. ASE promotes excellence in vehicle repair, service and parts distribution.
The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Blue Seal of Excellence recognition program recognizes the competence and credibility of the auto repair shop technicians who help people keep their cars on the road every day. And in the case of government fleets, it honors the hard work technicians put into making sure police officers, firefighters, public works employees, and more are able to serve their communities.
In order to earn the ASE Blue Seal recognition, a minimum of 75% of the shop's technicians must be ASE certified. Among those certified technicians, the shop must cover all ASE certifications that correspond to every area of service the shop offers.
