CTC launches second health and wellness program for automotive technicians

by Madaline Dunn

Back in January, the Central Trading Company (CTC) launched its second annual health and wellness program for automotive technicians across the Emirates. Wrapping up on February 15, the public initiative aimed to reach over 10,000 automotive technicians in various workshops throughout the Emirates.

Powered by Castrol Lubricants, a part of the BP group, the program deployed four medical vans across all the emirates, staffed with Aster Clinic medical professionals and testing equipment, to provide essential health services.

A variety of medical tests were offered for free, including blood sugar and blood pressure tests.

Automotive technicians then received a privilege card after their test results, entitling them to a 30% discount on all non-insurance covered procedures at Aster Clinics and a 25% discount at Aster Hospitals, valid until March 2025 upon presentation of the card provided by the CTC and Castrol.

Further, the program also included various interactive activities, such as football challenges and strength competitions.

Speaking about the initiative, Mohammed Aqel, General Manager of CTC, said: “At the heart of the automotive aftermarket industry are the dedicated technicians who ensure our customers’ vehicles run smoothly. This program is our way of acknowledging their hard work and commitment.”

Adding: “This is our second year championing their health and happiness in partnership with Castrol. Our aim is to give back to the community by taking care of the overall well-being of our workforce.”

Sri Kumar, an automotive technician, said: “It is tough to find time to get these necessary health checks when you are working all day. Having the medical team come right to our workplace is a huge help and makes things so much easier for us.”
