Engel for me is a brand that I ‘ve actually owned for well over 20 years.
I remember when we purchased our first Engel from a company that is no longer around called Sunraysia Trading in Mildura.
Our family background is obviously in Mildura, but we love camping outdoors and having a great time.
Even now that I have moved to Melbourne, and have my own family, our hobby has continued and we have a caravan and love going camping and being in the great outdoors, as much as ever.
Engel has been a big part of that, to the point where I have even built a caravan around the Engel fridge, I have the draw fridge on the side next to the Weber BBQ. The 40 litre goes in the back of the car everywhere I go. For me it is more of a lifestyle thing and a necessity to be able to enjoy camping in the great outdoors, as we do.
Engel has become part of my life, even into the race car, where we’ve got the Engel fridge in the race car that we developed together and also the 30 litre in the A trailer that keeps my ice vests, drinks and other stuff cold before the race. So, it has gone from a lifestyle and a hobby accessory to something that I used as a part of my profession as well.
For me it is exciting to have a partnership with Engel as a company, even if we didn’t have a partnership with Engel, we would still be a long time loyal customer of the Engel Brand. The rewarding thing for myself is to be able to work with brands that we are passionate about and having an association with, for such a long time
