Two Canadians Win RIDGID Experience Contest
Derek Newton, of Kirkland Lake, ON, and Mary-Anne Bowcott, of Sooke, BC, were the Canadians among the winners of the fifth annual ‘RIDGID Experience’ contest. The winners, skilled trade workers, were treated to a VIP event where they gathered for fun, camaraderie, and hands-on experiences. The event also served as a ‘thank you’ to the trades for the role they play in building and maintaining their countries’ infrastructures, says RIDGID, a part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio. This year, the ‘Experience’ included a three-day, all-expenses-paid trip to RIDGID headquarters in Elyria, OH. Winners received a factory tour where they could build their own RIDGID customized pipe wrench. Guests also received a sneak peek at the company’s latest tool innovations and got to provide their opinions on product that is currently in development. Evening events included treating the guests to a preview of the company’s 100 year anniversary celebration plans, set for 2023.
