Canadian plumbers win quality tool time with Ridgid

Canadian plumbers Danielle Browne, from St. John’s, NL., and Rob McIlhargey, from Surrey, B.C., were among nine Ridgid tool users who won a VIP trip to the company’s headquarters in Elyria, Ohio, through its latest Ridgid Experience Contest.

Browne is pictured fourth from left and McIlhargey is fifth.

The all-expenses-paid three-day trip involved a variety of professional and networking experiences, including the opportunity to build their own iconic custom pipe wrench, a featured spot in a Ridgid photoshoot, a premium fishing excursion on Lake Erie and more.

Winners also received a behind-the-scenes tour of the Ridgid plant, getting a sneak peek at the latest tool innovations that have yet to hit the market and also providing insight for future product developments.

“Having these hardworking professionals come into our facilities and hearing them talk with the men and women who make the products they use is inspiring for all of us,” said Becky Brotherton, manager, marketing communications, Ridgid.

“Getting to spend a few days celebrating the passion of the Ridgid Experience winners is something we look forward to every year.”

Details on the next contest will be announced early next year.
