Successful Product Demonstrations Completed in NZ
Steve Terpstra and Craig Penty spent late October in New Zealand conducting live demonstrations of Guarda System’s new products. Several events were held in Wellington for their main Distributor and several of his key customers.
The Edge Powercutter Saw and the Vac-Generator were shown working both independently, and together, as an integrated dust, fume & slurry control system. The response has been overwhelmingly positive including comments such as “these products are a game-changer”. Everyone has been highly impressed by the technology and its ability to control dust, slurry and fumes simultaneously.
This excellent response serves to reinforce Guarda’s focus on changing the way masonry cutting is performed the world-over. And more importantly, to provide a technology that will help to save lives through silica dust control and prevention of lung cancer in the workplace.
