Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (12th March 2018) Ahern Canada celebrated its first trade show in its home town of Edmonton this weekend, by giving away a Snorkel S3008P push-around mini scissor lift.
The annual Prairie Regional Trade Show, organized by the Canadian Rental Association (CRA) took place on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at the Edmonton Expo Center. For their inaugural show, Ahern Canada took a 500 sq. ft. booth, where they displayed a range of Snorkel lifts, including a Snorkel S3219E electric slab scissor lift, an A38E electric boom lift and a UL25 push-around mast lift.
The Snorkel S3008P was also on display at the show. Designed for low-level construction and facilities maintenance applications, the Snorkel S3008P is an innovative push-around mini scissor lift, which provides a cost-effective way to safely work at low level heights indoors. Capable of withstanding the demands of construction sites and the rental industry, the Snorkel S3008P can lift 500 lbs. (227kg) to a working height of 14 ft. 2 in (4.32m).
Ahern Canada invited rental company attendees at the show to submit their business card at the booth, to be entered into a prize draw to win the Snorkel S3008P. Entrants had to be present at the prize draw to win, which took place at 1:30pm at the Ahern Canada booth.
Brent Fillmore of Legacy Equipment in Edmonton was drawn as the lucky winner of the lift. Legacy Equipment operates a large rental fleet, supporting the requirements of construction industry in northern Alberta, with equipment and small tools.
After the prize draw, Brent Fillmore said, “I am thrilled to win the Snorkel S3008P mini scissor lift, and I think it will be a great addition to our fleet. Our team has had a fantastic time at the Prairie Regional Trade Show, and this is really a wonderful surprise. Thank you, Ahern Canada!”
Rhett Nickerson, regional sales manager for Western Canada for Ahern Canada, said, “We wanted to do something to mark our first time at this show in our Ahern Canada branding, and we thought what could be more valuable to a rental company than a piece of equipment, that will keep on giving through the rental return. The Snorkel S3008P is a strong product which appeals to a wide range of potential rental customers, and we are sure it will be put to work in the Legacy Equipment fleet.”
