Representing Australia at the Connexis Annual Connection in NZ (November, 2014)

In October 2014 Redmond Gary Australia’s David Weaver and Darren Hoare attended the Connexis Annual Line Mechanic and Cable Jointer Competition in Christchurch, New Zealand. Redmond Gary Australia attended both as an exhibitor as well as one of the sponsors of the Curry Power team, a competitor in the Line Mechanic Competition.

Twelve teams were entered into each competition: the Line Mechanic and the Cable Jointer. The event took place between Tuesday, 14th and Thursday, 16th October in Christchurch and showcased the best that the New Zealand electrical supply industry – be it their people, work practices and commitment to safety – had to offer.

For the first time in its 13-year history, the 2014 Connexis Annual Connection saw the inclusion of an Australia competitor: Curry Power. Doing themselves and their nation proud, the Curry Power team won two of the events: Rigging and Teamwork.

On the exhibitor front, Redmond Gary Australia received a lot of interest across our entire product range, with particular interest in our winches, self loading cable trailers and EWPs. A massive thank-you goes to Electricity Ashburton who lent us their RGA EWP for the duration of the competition.
