Technicians name Snap-on best in five categories

According to a 2011 Frost & Sullivan survey


Forty-nine percent of respondents ranked Snap-on as the best brand when it came to power tools, an increase of seven percentage points from the 2010 results. The nearest competitor in this category was chosen by only 11 percent of surveyed technicians.

In only its second year as a category, Snap-on was the pick once again when it came to pneumatic/air tools, with 44 percent of service technicians naming Snap-on as their first choice. Snap-on’s latest innovation in pneumatic tools is the PT400 Series of die grinders. These classic tools now provide more power and speed, improving productivity in the repair shop, while giving technicians the comfortable and durable performance they would expect from Snap-on.

“Since Frost & Sullivan started researching U.S. automotive technicians with regards to the types of tools and diagnostic equipment they use, Snap-on is the one name that has stood out above all other brands,” said Frost & Sullivan global director Tonya Fowler. “To be voted ‘overall best’ year after year indicates Snap-on’s continued commitment to meeting the demands of its customers, and as being a leader in innovative productivity solutions for U.S automotive technicians.”
