Minden, NV– The week of September 10th 2012 Maxton Manufacturing Company exhibited at the
UNITED elevator industry event in Atlantic City, NJ. During the event Maxton held the first QR-Code Scavenger Hunt for the industry which was designed to donate funds to the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation (EESF) in the name of the winners not
to mention some cash for the top three participants. Barring several obstacles along the way a winner was named.
The QR-Code questions were spread throughout the show floor waiting and ready for scanning and answering.
Here are just a few examples:
Who is the authorized distributor of Otis OEM elevator and
escalator parts located in CT that uses Maxton valves in their power units?
Maxton products can be found through this elevator package
manufacturing company South of the Twin Cities don’t ya know. Who are they?
Who manufactures and supplies Maxton’s approved soy based
hydraulic Bio Oil product?
“With a fraction of the intended 25 players ready and willing to play…the game was on. Nearly half way through it happened,
the building router maxed out with cell phone users and no one could get their phone to work. The key tool and resource
for the game was down and disaster was knocking, but thanks to one very determined player the game was saved. Thanks
again John, you’re not only a real trooper, but a most generous man,” said Karl Keller Marketing Director.
So what happened? While presenting the $250.00 cash first prize and $450.00 donation to EESF, the winner made an impressive gesture by handing his cash prize to Barbara S. Allen Executive Director of EESF. “This game was well worth the time spent…..I had fun with the challenges and learned some elevator history along the way. If the money can save just one child it is well worth it,” said John Spinella of NEIEP.
Karl said, “I want to thank Unitec, MEI, Bunge, Delaware, EESF, Schumacher, Draka, Quality, AFD, and ITI for hosting the codes in their booths. All things considered the end was worth the unexpected challenges. Who knows, maybe we can hit it out of the park next year. I’m game are you?”
