Ontario welder wins pickup truck in 3M contest
- November 27, 2015
Ron Proulx, a welder at Bristol Machine in Sudbury, is the winner of a Ram 1500 SLT pickup truck. The truck was the grand prize of 3M's Cubitron II Discs contest "Grind Like a Legend II."
“This new vehicle could not have come at a better time as, after 11 years, I was ready to change my old truck,” says Ron Proulx, an outdoorsman who loves hunting, fishing and camping. “3M Cubitron II abrasive products have improved the quality of my work. Now with my new truck, it will be like I am with 3M day and night!”
The 2015 3M™ Cubitron™ II Discs “Grind Like a Legend II” Contest was held from April 1st to July 31st across Canada. A sticker with a unique code was placed on Cubitron II abrasive products from 3M. Users entered online using their unique code and chose between one of two legendary rides – a pick-up truck or a motorcycle. Three finalists were drawn and invited to a Motley Crüe concert in Montreal in a 3M VIP box on August 24, where the Grand Prize winner was announced.

Launched in 2014, Cubitron II abrasives from 3M are a line of products that help welders and other metalworkers. The products feature precision-shaped grain technology, where each grain is the exact same engineered shape, which helps reduce operator pressure and provide a more consistent finish. Cubitron II abrasives from 3M blast through more jobs by cutting faster, and self-sharpening for a substantially extended cut life, according to the company.
