Susanne Tuor of Icon Image in Long Beach, CA., is the first female installer to successfully pass the Lowen Certified and 3M Preferred Installer’s test. According to 3M, there is only one other woman that holds the elite title of 3M Preferred.
She is pictured along with her brother Sino, a fellow 3M Preferred Installer. The pair are hopeful that the 3M Preferred Graphics Installation designation will help them to grow within the industry, as well as give a broader skill set when it comes to training their own employees.
Susanne's accomplishment is backed by several years in the fleet and vinyl installation industry. She began working with a fleet leasing company and was tasked with looking into new graphics for their trucks. While going through the research, she realised that the graphics installation industry was just the challenge she was looking for.
“Study, practice and perfect your tools because we have to face the challenges of being in a male-dominated industry, and we do have to be a little perfect,” she says.
Lowen Certified is the only 3M Authorised training and testing facility outside of 3M’s facility in St. Paul, MN. After successfully passing the Lowen Certified test, installers are eligible to become 3M Preferred, which is recognised as one of the highest standards in the industry for vinyl graphic installers.
