At the 2004 World of Concrete, George Kanistras of General Caulking & Coatings Inc. of Ovieda, Fla., was handed a set of keys to a brand new Hummer H2. Kanistras’ name was drawn as the grand prize winner in Degussa Building Systems’ Sonneborn 100-Year Anniversary Celebration.
“I was just shocked when I heard the news. This isn’t something you ever expect to happen and it’s an overwhelming experience when it does,” Kanistras said. “The whole experience really shook me up.”
“Degussa wanted to share the excitement of our Sonneborn 100-Year Anniversary with our customers,” said Steve Ostermann, vice president of marketing for Degussa Building Systems. “Giving away this special vehicle, and the gifts from the Sonneborn 100 Year Rewards program, gave us an opportunity to thank our customers for 100 years of support.”
Helping celebrate in the excitement was a crowd of customers that overflowed into the isles surrounding the Degussa booth. On hand to show their support and to congratulate Kanistras were John Salvatore, president and CEO of Degussa Construction Chemicals America, and Mike Galasso, president and CEO of Degussa Building Systems.
