2008 PTEN Innovation Awards

March 7, 2008
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 issue.

Congratulations are in order for the following Professional Tool & Equipment News 2008 Innovation Awards winners. Our panel of active and independent techs/mechanics 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 issue. While all nominees received high marks for innovation from the panel, these winners are stand-outs. The next nine pages are filled with special tools and equipment that you'll want to make note of when you seek to increase productivity and efficiency in the shop.

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 RTI TechALERT below. The TechALERT was the highest rated tool nominated, receiving a near-perfect score from the judges for its innovative and unique approach to improving shop efficiency.

Congratulations again to the winners and to all that submitted for the Innovation Awards. It is clear that our industry continues to deliver tools and equipment to meet your needs for repairing vehicles.

Let us know what you think.
