As leading supplier of products to the electrical industry, Carl Kammerling International, is very much used to producing product solutions for end users and customers alike. However, on this particular occasion, they were able to provide a very different solution, when they came to the rescue of electrician, Jason Price, of Jason Price Electrical Services, whose hand was badly injured when a cable rod by another supplier splintered during use.  Now, thanks to the generosity of Carl Kammerling, Jason is the proud owner of a C.K MightyRods PRO Cable Rod Set, which offer total protection against splinters due to the unique SplinterShield coating.

The story came to light when William Sheridan from Carl Kammerling was visiting a customer  – Seryn Electrical, in Ross on Wye.  It was during conversation with Elaine Powell, the owner of the business, that she learned C.K MightyRods PRO are 100 percent splinterproof. She then recounted the story of Jason, who had suffered an injury from a different brand of cable rods.

Elaine Powell commented: “As a qualified electrician myself (Elaine was the first qualified female electrician in Wales over 25 years ago), I fully understand the importance of safety.  Cable rods can make light work of cable routing, but I was really upset to learn of Jason’s injury and, as a result, cable rod sales have plummeted since the accident. Customer confidence is of paramount importance to me and, as soon as I heard about the quality and the unique splinterproof feature that C.K MightyRods PRO provide, I had no hesitation in stocking them and sales are already increasing due to increased customer confidence”.

Jason Price of Jason Price Electrical Services commented: “I have been in business for over 25 years now and was a loyal user of cable rods in my work. But back in January a cable rod I was using splintered when I was pulling them through. The splinter went straight into my hand and I had to go to hospital to have it surgically removed. The doctors didn’t want to remove the splinter because of any potential nerve damage, so the splinter is still in my hand to this day and I was off work for over a month. 

“As you can imagine, I lost complete faith in cable rods and had stopped using them, as did other electricians when word got around. But now I will definitely be using C.K MightyRods PRO because the splinterproof coating has given me the confidence and reassurance that I can work safely and I won’t find myself in a similar situation again.”
