Terex Utilities is one of seven inaugural sponsors of “Woodwalkers,” a new reality television show airing to 96 million viewers nationwide on Tuff TV.
The show is based on the Southeast Lineman Training Center’s 6-
part series, “Elevated — The Story of the Woodwalkers.” The series is a docudrama highlighting the journey of individuals going through the vocational school’s 15-week training program to becoming a lineman apprentice.
“Woodwalkers are part of an elite, highly-trained group of future American heroes — the ones that keep the power turned on for the rest of us, through the heat of the summer, the dead of winter and through every thunderstorm and natural disaster,” said PJ Nardy, executive vice president, Southeast Lineman Training Center (SLTC). “The show follows the journey of hopeful apprentice lineworkers at SLTC as they ‘put it all on the line’ for a chance at a new career and a fresh start at life. From scaling soaring 60-ft poles to rescuing an injured co-worker when every second counts, viewers will be amazed at some of the shocking scenarios a lineman must be trained to face every day as part of his job. Our goal with this series is to share these incredible stories.”
The show is fully sponsored by companies, like Terex, that make equipment and products that serve the lineman industry. In addition to appearing in company and product spotlights throughout the series, Terex digger derricks and bucket trucks also are used in several episodes by the
apprentice lineman to complete training tasks.
“Being an inaugural sponsor of the docudrama ‘Woodwalkers’ gives Terex Utilities a great opportunity to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to be a value-added resource and partner to our customers and their crews — the Woodwalkers — in the electric utilities market,” says Jim
Lohan, Terex Utilities vice president of sales and marketing. “SLTC provides apprentice lineman with extremely valuable training, as well as an understanding of work methods and safety procedures, to meet the most current jobsite requirements and industry standards. It is an honor for Terex to be one of the school’s ongoing equipment suppliers, as well as a sponsor of this show, as they work to train and gain visibility for these unsung heroes.”
Other inaugural sponsors of the show include Bashlin Industries, Buckingham, Greenlee, Sherman & Riley, Klien Tools, J.L Matthews, NESCO and Hastings.
