JACKSON, Tenn. – Delphi Corp. and Babcox Publication’s Tomorrow’s Technician magazine are bringing the future of the automotive aftermarket to life for a class at the Tennessee Technology Center in Jackson, TN.

Tomorrow’s Technician selected the class as the winner of the magazine’s monthly pop quiz, and Delphi awarded the class with $3,500 in tools and equipment.

Representatives from Delphi and Babcox Publishing were at the school to present a plaque, tools and equipment, participate in a school tour, and interact with students. Along with the award, Delphi provided a training seminar for students on the future of vehicle technology.

During 2007, Delphi sponsored the monthly pop quiz answers in Tomorrow’s Technician, testing readers’ knowledge on service parts and systems. The classroom at the Tennessee Technology Center at Jackson was randomly selected from registered participants to win tools and equipment from Delphi’s line of workshop solutions and productivity tools.

Hands-on events like this are great opportunities for Delphi to show students what new technologies are coming down the road for the automotive aftermarket.” said Norm Young, vice president of North American sales and global service operations, independent aftermarket, Delphi Product & Service Solutions.
