A Riverhead contractor won the ULTRA Pro Challenge at Revco Lighting + Electrical Supply, Inc. in Southampton earlier this month. Many local contractors competed to install an ULTRA Ventilation Fan, which provides bathroom ventilation, with the quickest time. Winner Justin Winters of A & M Electric of Riverhead won with an installation time of five minutes, 16 seconds, and earned a $500 Cabela’s gift certificate.
The competition was a part of a nation wide tour of events. At the conclusion of the tour, the eight contractors with quickest times—sadly none from the East End—won a trip to the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas in February 2014 where they will compete for a grand prize of a 2014 Ford F150 pickup truck.
The Southampton event is one of 60 stops along the national ULTRA Pro Challenge tour, hosted by Broan-NuTone, the leader of residential ventilation. The competition gives contractors across the country hands-on experience with ULTRA Ventilation Fans, which install up to 60 percent faster in retrofits and up to 20 percent faster in new construction than comparable fans, increasing profitability. The fans also meet green building and ventilation codes.
