Brendan Hollows is a true born and bred Manawatu Local. Growing up in Palmerston North in the 80's he soon found his calling as a mechanic not long after getting his first car at age 15. He went on to complete a pre-apprenticeship in automotive mechanics at Palmerston North Ucol in 1998. From there he moved over to Sydney to complete Certificate 3 in light vehicle mechanics. Knowing that heavy diesel is really where he wanted to be, Brendan moved over to WA to complete certificate 3 and 4 in Engineering mobile plant mechanics. After spending 7 years in the WA mining and gas industry Brendan decided enough was enough and moved home in 2015 bringing a wealth of knowledge with him.
