DEWALT is Technical Supplier to the organizing body of the World Championships, a synergy born thanks to shared objectives: innovation and durability of instruments and projects over time.
XRP drills were supplied for the preparation of the race tracks and all the equipment will remain to benefit the territory, for preparation of the tracks during subsequent winter seasons.
The XRP (Extreme Runtime Performance) drill is an 18V brushless impact tool with double 5.0Ah battery that guarantees great performance in drilling operations. It is the most powerful tool on the market and resistance combined with advanced battery technology guarantee maximum performance even in unfavourable conditions (cold temperatures, etc.), such as those encountered on ski slopes.
«This partnership is born in full harmony with our mission – declares Valerio Giacobbi, CEO of Fondazione Cortina 2021 – with DEWALT at our side as Technical Supplier, not only are we certain of preparing the race tracks in the best possible way for the World Championships, but we will also contribute to the renewal of the equipment park, thus investing in the future of tourism and sport in Cortina ».
«We are proud that our DEWALT cordless power tools are recognised as the best performing for intensive use in all conditions and for having been chosen to prepare for such an important event as the World Ski Championships – declares Stefano Residori Brand & Communication Manager – We are happy to remain on the slopes in future years, thus further binding us to the world of sport and skiing. We hope that the World Ski Championships can be a signal for the return of all winter sports».
