Van Thawngcem
Workshop Technician

Van is originally from Myanmar and moved to Nelson with his family in 2010 to start a new life.

He began working in the Bowater Hyundai workshop in early 2015 and has settled into the busy team environment and can always be found with a cheeky wide smile and an infectious laugh! 

Van is very keen on cars and will always be the one happy to help when it comes time to move cars to and from an event - he is super keen on learning and the more times he can get behind the wheel he happier he is. 
Van's passion for the Hyundai brand is very evident and he enjoys the support from a very encompassing national training centre that all of our technicians regularly attend as they collectively further both knowledge and advances in technology and diagnostics.
