First Greenlee Experience Brings Skilled Trades Together for VIP Event

Greenlee, a part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, recently welcomed guests of the first Greenlee Experience Contest to one of their manufacturing facilities for an all-expenses-paid, three-day trip. Guests enjoyed VIP professional and networking experiences, including an opportunity to shape future tool development and build a custom iconic Greenlee Knockout Kit.

Guest Ana Rigsby, a sprinkler and fitter instructor in Amity, Oregon, described the trip as a culmination of excitement. “I felt like a kid in a candy shop, so many fun memories and spoiling going on at the Greenlee Experience. Got to meet so many cool folks. Blessed and grateful beyond belief, thank you Greenlee for everything!”

“A time that went by so quick but was one of the best times in my life. An experience I’ll never forget surrounded by great fellow tradesmen,” said Calvin Holmes, an electrician in Alymer, Ontario.

The Greenlee team echoed their sentiment.

“Greenlee Experience was truly a once-in-a-lifetime trip not only for the guests but also for our team. We had a great time getting to know each guest, hearing why they love the electrical trades and learning from their expertise in the industry,” said Heather McLin, vice-president of marketing, professional tools for Emerson.

“We can’t wait to host another group of guests next year and have already begun planning the next Greenlee Experience. We take our role as a guardian of the trades seriously, and events like this allow us to roll out the red carpet for some of the hardest working people out there.”

Guests also had the opportunity to network with guests of RIDGID Experience, a similar contest hosted by professional tools brand RIDGID. The two concurrent events created a full-scale celebration of the electrical, mechanical and plumbing trades.

Details on the second Greenlee Experience Contest in 2023 will be announced early next year.
