Western, Pro-Tech team up to support veterans

June 15, 2016 -  By

Western Products and Pro-Tech will donate custom, military-themed snow removal equipment to be raffled off to support the nonprofit arm of the American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT).

AVTT is a nationally recognized, veteran-owned and -operated business that specializes in supporting the recognition and remembrance of fallen service members by assisting with travel to war memorials and providing scholarships to veterans’ family members. The raffle will be held on June 24 at the 2016 Snow & Ice Management Association (SIMA) Snow & Ice Symposium in Providence, RI. One hundred percent of the raffle proceeds donated to the AVTT goes to veterans and their families.

“Western Products is honored to support such an important organization as the AVTT,” said Katie Sandieson, Western Products director of advertising and communications. “This is an excellent opportunity for us to support our veterans and their families and we look forward to hearing about the successful trips and scholarships in the future.”

The custom Western Wide-Out snowplow and Pro-Tech Rubber Edge Sno Pusher were designed in tandem with Rich Arlington & Associates, an industry consultant. Rich Arlington served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1983-1987 and has also been a snow and ice removal contractor since the 1980s. The design commemorates the five branches of the U.S. military and their veterans.
