Cardiff Castle flag down – Super Cam saves the day

It’s not every day we get the equivalent of a 999 at Super Rod HQ, but recently that was just the case. So, what was the emergency that need some Super Rod expertise and help, FLAG DOWN. One of the biggest symbols of Welsh Pride, namely the flag that flies on the top of Cardiff castle, had been damaged in a recent storm, and the nation of Wales was in effect FLAG DOWN, and so it was Super Rod to the rescue.

The challenge was not easy as we had to bring the full Super Rod armoury into action, combining the brand-new Super Cam, along with our rod kits to help the teams at HOD Stage Crew Ltd and Genesis Marketing & Events Ltd. to route the draw rope back through a new flagpole, and restore this prestigious monument back to its former glory.

Heroes of the day were the team from HOD Stage Crew Ltd and Genesis Marketing & Events Ltd along with Sam from the Super Rod team, who navigated their way up the tower to restore the flag and Welsh pride. Sam like many of the team is Super proud of his Welsh heritage, bounced back into the office proclaiming to all it was one of the proudest days of his working life at Super Rod.

In conclusion, our mission statement and mantra has always been #workingsmarter and today was a perfect example of that combining our products, our knowledge and a little imagination to solve this particular problem.
