A Ba man scooped the overall award for the technical category at the Asco Motors Toyota national skills contest on Saturday.
Ravin Nilesh Lal was judged the winner based on his skills as a mechanic for the company.
The win saw Mr Lal seal a place in the regional competition in Australia next year.
This is the 21st year of the competition and it usually sees in-house mechanics battle it out for awards and at the same time sharpening their skills. As in the winners' cases the win will be taking them places where they have the chance to be exposed to international experts in the field of motor mechanical and technical engineering.
If Mr Lal is also successful in the regional competition, he will then get the opportunity to participate in the Toyota Motor Corporation's Assembly of Champions in Japan.
The Asco Motors skills contest has four categories - parts, service, technical and body and panel.
The parts category was won by Jese Tabua, the service advisory category was won by Josateki Levuiloa, the technical and body category was won by Balwant Singh, and the panel category won by Nilesh Chand.
Asco Motors human resources and regional development manager, Fiji, Ranju Kumar, said the turnout this year was fantastic
"It really gave our staff the opportunity to showcase their talents, with a sense of competitiveness added to it," Ms Kumar said.
She said it also gave the company a chance to witness how the employees felt about their jobs.
"It allows us to see that they do love their jobs and makes them realise that the biggest beneficiary of this contest is the customer," she said.
The competition was held at the Asco Motors Service Centre in Nabua on Saturday.
