Six Attendees at Windpower 2012 Win Safety Harnesses and Toolboxes


Wind Systems partnered with Capital Safety and Snap-On Tools to raffle Snap-On toolboxes and ExoFit NEX Global Wind Energy Harnesses at the AWEA Windpower 2012 show in Atlanta, GA.

Raffle tickets were provided each day of the event to those visiting the Wind Systems booth where they received free subscriptions to the magazine and information about other exhibitors at the show held at the Georgia World Congress Center.

“We had a great time at Windpower 2012 and we’d like to congratulate AWEA for all their hard work,” said David C. Cooper, president and CEO of MSI, and publisher of Wind Systems and Gear Solutions magazines. “We had a great turnout each day of the show and we were extremely pleased with the turnout each day at our booth generated by these prizes donated for the giveaway.”

Winner of the first day’s drawing for the harness was Michael Burns of Burns Brothers Performance and Scott Kailer of JR Custom Metal won the toolbox.

Patrick Laird of Laramie County Community College won the harness the second day, while Telicia Craft of MH&W International took home the toolbox.

Third day winners included Nick Bach, a student who won the harness, and Dan Hadfield with Gard Specialists winning the toolbox.

Winners of the ExoFit Global Energy Safety Harnesses provided their measurements to Capital Safety so that their harnesses were custom-fit for their use.

The toolboxes and harnesses were shipped to the winners following the show.

AWEA Windpower 2012 was the first major wind energy conference and exhibition to take place in the Southeast, attracting thousands of corporate leaders and wind power professionals with concurrent educational sessions, committee meetings, and more than 900 exhibitors representing 60 countries.

“With more than 90 wind-related manufacturing facilities located in the Southeast – 20 of which are in Georgia – and the proximity to Hartsfield-Jackson International, the world’s busiest airport, Atlanta was a natural fit to host Windpower, and we are excited that AWEA chose Atlanta as the host city this year,” said Metro Atlanta Chamber Vice President, Supply Chain & Advanced Manufacturing Development Bob Pertierra. “Wind energy, renewable energy and clean technology represent one of the fastest-growing segments for economic growth in the world.”
