We appreciate all those that came by, including a celebrity.

Parker Schnabel, star of Discovery Channel’s hit TV series Gold Rush came by a few times on his own accord. He really appreciated how Flex-Mat®3 Modular on the top deck and Tensioned on the second deck really helped him exceed his ounce goal for this past season. Before switching to Flex-Mat 3 about 2/3rds into the season, he doubted that he would even reach his goal.

Want greater success like Parker? Take advantage of trying Flex-Mat 3 for the first time or on a new application with our Flex-Mat 3 50% Off Program. Better hurry…the program ends April 18. *Some restrictions apply. Only valid in North America.

Parker Schnabel Visits Major Wire’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG Booth

Parker Schnabel, star of Discovery Channel’s hit TV series Gold Rush, stopped by the Major Wire booth at CONEXPO-CON/AGG on three different days to visit with fellow Flex-Mat® 3 users and to pose for pictures.

Major Wire’s distinctive lime green Flex-Mat 3 screen media was installed during Episode #13 of the show. In this episode, Parker Schnabel replaced polyurethane with Flex-Mat 3 Modular. He also compared the two types of screen media side-by-side and discussed the huge throughput difference.

“We are very pleased that Parker Schnabel was able to stop by the Major Wire booth and that our line of self-cleaning screen media could play a small part in making his season a success,” said Jean Leblond, president of Major Wire.
