Maranda Wright has won $10,000 in free products after entering Linear’s giveaway commemorating the company’s 50th Anniversary.
Linear’s Grand Prize Drawing, which attracted more than 2,000 entries since January, culminated with company officials picking Wright’s name at random in early June.
“I am shocked. Winning was completely unexpected,” said the business manager and technician at Controlled Access Systems, Fort Smith, AR, an access control and security firm that designs and installs automatic gates, electronic entry and video surveillance systems for residential and commercial customers throughout Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma.
“It’s exciting to reward a loyal customer with a major prize like this, as part of celebrating our 50th Anniversary,” said Gary Baker, Linear’s VP of marketing. A Linear dealer for more than two decades of Radio Controls, Telephone Entry Systems as well as the Aigis Mechtronics CCTV line (now part of Linear), Wright says winning will help the family-owned business she runs with her father and two brothers.
“This is a significant prize and advantage for our business. Having this equipment will help us for the whole year,” Wright said. “We already have jobs lined up for the Linear Gate Operators and various Access Control products we ordered.”
“Winning is also giving us the chance to test some other Linear products that we have never used before, so we can potentially branch out into new service areas. The spectrum of products Linear offers is a real business opportunity for us, which is a nice benefit of being a Linear dealer,” she added.
