SixAxis’ ErectaStep touted as the “8th Wonder of the World” in an unprecedented national media campaign

October 29, 2018

Andrews, South Carolina—Already recognized as the world leader in manufacturing loading platforms and fall-protection products, SixAxis launched a clever and comedic national media campaign through their in-house creative marketing agency red7 last week promoting ErectaStep, their line of industrial modular stairs, catwalks, and handrails designed to increase safety and efficiency for some of the world’s most innovative brands.

SixAxis has been providing access and safety systems to the truck, rail, ship, aviation, and aerospace industries using state-of-the-art technology since 2003. Their award-winning products and patents are created under brands such as SafeRack, ErectaStep, YellowGate, Rollastep, and Aerostep and have helped support the efforts of industry-leading Fortune 500 companies such as Boeing, Dow, and Coca Cola to name just a few.

red7 President and Chief Creative Officer, Jason Wider explains, “We created the 8th Wonder of the World campaign to communicate ErectaStep’s revolutionary approach to an age-old problem in what we think will be a memorable approach.”

The 60 second TV commercial depicts the binding arbitration hearing of a historically relevant cast of characters including mummified Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, Aztec Emperor Montezuma, and His Highness Chinese Emperor Qin Shi Huang. ErectaStep is hilariously debated amongst the legends as the 8th Wonder of the World. SixAxis’ in-house marketing agency red7 is responsible for the witty ad that hit national media outlets last week.

“Our goal is to reach significant industry decision makers seeking innovative access and staircase solutions for manufacturing,” explains Wilder. “They are creating their own wonders of the world and ErectaStep is there to help make it happen.” The unprecedented campaign includes national broadcast television, digital media, print ads, and an extended 2-minute web film with supporting content that can be viewed online at https://www.erectastep.com.
