Avesta Represented at National Maintenance Mania Competition

Kyle Slagle - 2015 National Maintenance Mania

Kyle Slagle will be representing Avesta Communities at the national Maintenance Mania Championship Friday, June 26th in Las Vegas, NV. Out of hundreds of competitors across the country only 20 finalists will compete on Friday. Based out of Jacksonville, FL, Kyle Slagle works at Avesta Mandarin as a Lead Service Technician.

Slagle notes, “I’m super excited. I’ve never been to Vegas before. This gives me an opportunity to see the new technology with maintenance parts, specifically the Duo Flush System and the Kwikset Smart Keys. Both of these tools could help run the community more effectively. As far as the competition goes, watch out because Kyle Slagle is coming!”

Assistant Manager, Peter Byrne further notes, “Kyle comes to work every day with the same positive attitude and his enthusiasm is contagious. He is the ultimate team player and is willing to do whatever it takes to improve the lives of our residents. Most importantly, he makes those around him better, and that is a sign of a true leader.”

Maintenance Mania is a nationally recognized maintenance competition. Competitors are scored on how quickly and skillfully they can complete each maintenance-related task. Events include water heater installation, faucet installation, icemaker installation, fire/carbon monoxide safety installation, ceiling fan installation, duo flush toilet conversion, and a model race car competition. The race car competition is a fan favorite in which the competitors build a race car out of parts found in their maintenance shops.
