The 2022 Pro Tool Innovation Awards have been announced, with winners and finalists drawn from over 200 categories, recognizing innovative tools, accessories, fasteners and products for the construction industry as well as the automotive, repair, woodworking, industrial, production and landscaping industries!
Each year, the Pro Tool Innovation Awards highlight the most innovative products in these industries. You'll find big manufacturers alongside small companies with great ideas – all entering the market or have already entered the market.
For manufacturers, the awards provide an opportunity to showcase what they have been working on since last year. For you, this is an opportunity to learn about the latest tools, some of which are being shown publicly for the first time.
Innovation continues to come in many forms, and cordless tools touch on many fronts. New battery technology opens the door to more powerful devices. Outdoor power equipment is experiencing a huge expansion due to more advanced products and significantly improved battery power. It also makes the jobs of plumbers and electricians easier.
Even with all of this going on, there is still plenty of innovation happening in corded, air and hand tools. We even saw a new exoskeleton hit the market that should help with working at heights!
With more than 150 years of experience in the trade and tool industries, this year's team of judges has a broad perspective in identifying relevant innovations that can have an impact on the way you work.
