On July 1, 2019 Trystar put our new Rubberneck cable to the test. We discovered our cable is even better, even more rugged and durable, and most important, even safer than we thought.
For four days in July, Trystar portable power products and cable helped to bring power to the inaugural 3M Open on the PGA Tour. With over 6.5 miles of cable running from generators, everything from cash registers to the Friday night concert lights powered up for 3M Open’s first year success.
On average, 32 million people attend music festivals in the United States each year. Over 600 are scheduled for 2019. And not one of them is possible without portable power. Many of these performances consist of light and sound shows that can run into the thousands, if not millions, of dollars to produce. And if the portable power products on the grounds fail, promoters only hear the sound of money going down the drain. That’s why many of the largest shows depend on Trystar products to keep the power on and the crowds rocking.
When hurricane Florence struck the Carolinas on September 14th, 2018, Trystar was already hard at work. In fact, we began sending portable power equipment on September 10th—four days before Florence ever made landfall. And our shipments continued throughout that week, and into the following week. When Florence hit, the Trystar team was prepared to work harder, longer, and faster so that critically needed equipment was on the road and on site.
The festivities surrounding Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis included 10 days of events, dozens of live music performances, and entertainment and experiences of all shapes and sizes. With 2-degree temperatures and more news media than anyone could count, pulling it all off also took miles of electrical cable, hundreds of stringer boxes, dozens of electrical panels and more. One manufacturer – right here in Minnesota – helps make it all happen: Trystar.
