A New Hampshire company president was given an iPad from RectorSeal Corp. as the first winner of the company’s Aspen Pump Golden Ticket contest.

The contest’s 25 tickets were not hidden inside Willy Wonka chocolate bars but placed with Aspen Pumps’ Mini White, Orange Mini, Orange Maxi, Aqua Mini and Micro V Series condensate pump packaging distributed by its North American HVAC market wholesalers. 

Michael Clarke, president of HVAC contractor Dussault Mechanical Services in Hudson, New Hampshire, was given the iPad Mini 3 May 10 after purchasing 410 Aspen Mini White condensate pumps for a 150-unit multifamily housing complex in Cambridge, Massachuttes, where he was replacing window air conditioners with ductless mini-split units from Mitsubishi. 

The first winning ticket was found inside a unit Clarke bought at Watsco distributor Homans Associates in Wilmington, Massachusetts. 

RectorSeal’s New England manufacturer’s representative, Robert Forbes, of Gimper Forbes LLC in Edison, New Jersey, gave Clarke the iPad.
“This is the first of many Aspen golden ticket promotions we plan in the future,” Aspen Pump product manager said Rob Moore, who created the promotion with Riley Archer, RectorSeal’s national construction sales manager.
