With the help of Mechanics, many modes of transport can be repaired and improved to be used longer and more efficiently. If no-one knew how to repair vehicles, they would be thrown out as soon as they stopped working, wasting valuable resources.

Mechanics inspect vehicles and perform basic and advanced maintenance on them. Mechanics can specialise in motorcycles, cars, buses, farm machinery or cover all. They will repair and maintain bodywork, engines, transmissions, brakes, cooling systems and on-board system maintenance, including electrical wiring, among other things. Mechanics will also perform preventive maintenance to ensure the safety of drivers before any issues occur with the vehicle.


  • The title of “Mechanic” can apply to almost anyone involved with the monitoring, installation, maintenance and repair of mechanical devices.
  • As vehicle technology improves, new tools must be purchased to attend to these vehicles.
Mr. Vuthy Hong
Workshop Supervisor
TATA International Cambodia
A lot goes on in a workshop - no two days are ever the same, and that is something I enjoy most about my work.

Over the past two years, I have been working for TATA International Cambodia, which supplies Farmtrac Tractors to the market. I am currently a Workshop Supervisor. Prior to this position, I was a basic mechanic, repairing and maintaining dump trucks, excavators and other heavy equipment.

Making the move to TATA International made a lot of sense to me. Aside from the fact that I would benefit from professional exposure in a multinational company, I was drawn at the idea of providing Cambodia with something it needed – machinery for agriculture. After all,Cambodia has always been an agricultural country.

I am in charge of the tractor workshop, where all the work on tractors gets done. My main duty at the moment is to take care of new tractor stocks and deliveries, which means doing pre-delivery inspections. A lot goes on in a workshop – no two days are ever the same, and that is something I enjoy most about my work. Making sure customers receive their orders to expected standards, and on time, is a challenge that I enjoy taking on every day.

To improve my skills, and therefore my employer’s need to retain me, I undertook training in a tractor factory in India last year. This helped me build my knowledge about tractors and allowed me to come back to share this among my team to ensure we were all on the same page and could provide the best service possible. I believe that by improving myself at work, I will be able to advance in my career and with the company.

The Cambodian economy is booming and today we can see a number of car and tractor companies settling in here. The demand for quality mechanics and technicians will only continue to grow, as will the opportunities for them to branch out and start their own repair shops. My advice to anyone looking to become a Mechanic is: get through technical vocational training; have the theories embedded in your head; get first hand experience and skills; make the most of every challenge; and brush up on your English skills.
