Elyria, Ohio — Two lucky Canadians received a trip of a lifetime as part of the 2022 Ridgid Experience contest, which is hosted annually by the tooling company.
Derek Newton from Kirkland Lake, Ont, and Mary-Anne Bowcott, owner of Westcom Plumbing and Gas in Sooke, B.C, joined seven other guests on the Ridgid Experience trip. Guests were treated to an all-expenses paid trip to the Ridgid headquarters in Elyria, Ohio. The three-day event included a factory tour where each guest had the chance to build their own Ridgid customized pipe wrench. Guests also got a sneak peek at some of the company’s latest tool innovations and its 100-year anniversary plans.
“I can’t say enough about how amazing the past few days were,” said Bowcott. “I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to go to the Rigid Experience 2022 and meet so many fantastic people, check out the headquarters, and go on some pretty awesome outings. I’m over the moon and still just can’t believe that I got to do this.”
Details on the 2023 Ridgid Experience contest will be announced early next year.
