Crosslings duo pulls Tectite road trip prize

Bullows, from the Newcastle branch, scored 246.37 in the pull test while Watson scored 17.6s in the speed test.

The Tectite Team will be travelling the length and breadth of the UK to answer questions, provide information and encourage visitors to test their skills with Tectite via the ‘Tectite Challenge’. The challenge demonstrates the strength, speed and pressure capabilities of the product as well as the person using it.

“We think the best way to build trust in a product is to make sure the people ‘on the front-line’ are aware of the latest plumbing innovations by providing hands-on experience, ” says Pegler Yorkshire business development and marketing director Phill Jackson.

“We want our visitors to test themselves against Tectite, see its strength, witness its pressure capabilities and discover how effective it can be in reducing total project costs.”

The strongest contenders and fastest challengers will be placed on a leader board system which will be updated daily. During 2013, over £5000 in vouchers and prizes will be given away, with weekly winners of the speed and strength tests awarded £50 each in high street vouchers. The leader board will also be placed on Pegler Yorkshire’s Facebook page whereby visitors can see if their score is being challenged, at the end of the month the top challenger on both tests will be given an additional prize!

The road show will be travelling throughout the UK visiting merchants, offices and construction sites, details of its next pit stop can be found on the website
