Hilti Inc. and Dodge presented the grand prize for the 2007 Innovation Tour at the 2008 Innovation Tour kick-off event, Tuesday, April 8, at the Hilti Center in Woburn, Mass.
Cary Evert, Hilti CEO and president, presented the grand prize, including the keys to a 2008 Dodge Sprinter van and $20,000 worth of Hilti tools, to Grzgorz Marzec of Chicago.
Marzec is the owner of Chicago-based Marzec Construction, and began using Hilti tools on the jobsite 20 years ago.
“I first used Hilti when I lived in Poland,” said Marzec. “I have used Hilti tools ever since because they are very good quality tools that are highly efficient.” Marzec will continue to use Hilti products, as well as his new Dodge Sprinter van, for every day business.
The 2007 Hilti Innovation Tour, co-sponsored by Dodge, stopped at more than 679 events including events at every ProShop in the continental United States. Seven Hilti-branded Dodge Sprinters were driven to select cities to showcase the latest innovative Hilti products and services.
In 2008, the Innovation Tour will travel to 150 cities and make 275 stops nationwide. Hilti team members will answer questions and conduct on-site demonstrations of Hilti products.
Several event-only specials will be offered and attendees will have the opportunity to participate in interactive product demonstrations and spin a Hilti wheel for prizes. At each tour stop, attendees can also enter to win a limited edition Hilti tool pack. Attendees can also enter for a chance to win $50,000.
