Congratulations are in order for the following Professional Tool & Equipment News 2009 Innovation Awards winners! Our panel of active and independent techs, shop owners, mechanics and tool distributors scrutinized the nominees (no one from the PTEN staff served in a judging capacity). These tools and equipment were selected as the top in a very tight race of products that were nominated and listed online and in PTEN’s February and March issues. While all nominees received good marks for innovation from the panel, these winners are stand-outs in their categories. These pages are filled with special products that increase productivity and simplify tasks in the repair bay.
The staff at PTEN congratulates the winning companies on their innovative products, and all the companies that innovate with new tools and equipment to help auto repair professionals excel at their job. Of special note is the Snap-on Tools Dodge Wheel Hub Removal Adaptor. This Adaptor was the highest-rated tool by the judges, regardless of category, for its new approach.
Congratulations again to the winners and to all that submitted for the Innovation Awards. This industry continues to deliver innovative tools and equipment to meet your needs for repairing vehicles. Let us know what you think.
