After selling seven Patriot crimping tools in four months, Richard Rindone of Consolidated Electrical Distributors, Charlotte, N.C., won the grand prize in FCI Burndy’s Patriot 4x4 Freedom Promotion. The promotion allowed distributor sales representatives the chance to earn as many as four awards in four months selling the crimping tools.

Rindone will take home a $6,000 personal watercraft from Yamaha. “I let a customer use the tool for four days, and he fell in love with it, immediately placing five orders,” Rindone says of the contest. “He said there was no looking back at the competition.”
