Day of triumph for the heroes
Winner’s day in the competition #excavatorhero, arranged by Rototilt, was a real hit for four very satisfied participants. “Every member of Rototilt’s staff stood outside the factory and surprised us with cheers and a red carpet. They treated us really like heroes!” said Paul Østre Bergly from Norway, one of the winners.
The winners were collected by limousine and were made to cover their eyes with blindfolds. Completely unaware of events to come, the winners were welcomed to the Rototilt facility with a mighty cheer from around the factory. In addition, during the day the heroes sat down together with the design manager, product manager and marketing and sales manager to express their views about the products.
“I had really been looking forward to the workshop. I work a lot on the railway and have many ideas about how the work can be improved. This is a company that listens to its users,” says Hannu Saukko from Finland
The entire visit was rounded off with an overnight stay in the unique tree huts at Granö Beckasin outside of Vindeln.
Those chosen came from four different countries: Sweden, Norway, Finland and Ireland. All had been declared winners in the social media contest #excavatorhero, where participants had to post a picture of themselves with their Rototilt tiltrotator. The aim of the competition was to highlight the real heroes who build our common future.
“What surprised me was the immediate contact we established with each other. Discussions about working methods, equipment and the type of work we do was something we just wanted to carry on”, said the Swedish hero Richard Haas.
