PROTExpo – WAPP’s annual open day

West Australian Power Protection (WAPP) was proud to present our annual open day event. Dubbed the PROTExpo, we had a series of live demonstrations lined up showcasing products in Lightning Protection installation, Earthing, CADWELDing, Soil Testing and innovative products in Surge Protection.

The main objective of the event was to provide our customers a better understanding of multiple solutions that WAPP and ERICO can offer, and also to encourage our customers to use us as a solutions provider resource for technical support, design, estimating, installation, testing and commissioning.

It was a great turn out with over 40 attendees from various industries and blue-chip companies which made for a great networking opportunity.

The feedback we received from everyone was that they thoroughly enjoyed the event and found benefit in attending, drawing from the experience from our experts. Despite standing for over an hour during the demonstrations, many stayed till the very end, still riveted. There were numerous requests for follow up visits from those who attended which we shall be doing so in the coming weeks.

Once again, thank you to all those who attended and to our partner companies, ERICO and Aptus Power for their time today.
