RIDGID recently hosted their fifth annual RIDGID experience trip, a VIP event that invited members of the skilled trades to gather for fun, camaraderie and hands-on experiences. The event also serves as a “thank you” to the trades for the role they play in building and maintaining infrastructure.

The contest, which draws entries from tradespeople across North America, concludes with RIDGID treating nine guests, two who were Canadian, to a three-day, all-expenses-paid trip to the RIDGID headquarters.

The Canadians who took part were:

  • Derek Newton – Kirland Lake, Ontario 
  • Mary-Anne Bowcott – Sooke, British Columbia 

The highlight of the visit was a factory tour that invites each guest to build their own RIDGID customized pipe wrench. Guests also received a sneak peek at the latest RIDGID tool innovations and provided 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.
