Updated: Sep 17, 2021
Ramsey, NJ – September 15th
This week Wurth USA received a Pro Tool Innovation Award for the ZEBRA® POWERDRIV (12-Point) Dual Ratchet Combination Wrench Assortment - Art. No. 071425950. A diverse panel of judges made up of contractors, construction business owners, tradesmen, and media professionals came together this year to vote on the most innovative construction and outdoor power equipment industry products in the world. As judging wrapped up for the 9th annual PTIA Awards, 2021 revealed a particularly competitive mix of tools, accessories, fasteners, and other products submitted by some of the top manufacturers from around the world. Here's what the Pro Tool Innovation Awards judges said about the Wurth USA ZEBRA® POWERDRIV (12-Point) Dual Ratchet Combination Wrench Assortment - Art. No. 071425950 “Würth made their ZEBRA® ratcheting wrenches even more versatile and convenient with a ratcheting open end. Some of these are novel, but Würth’s actually work. A mechanism inside the open end allows the wrench to slip over the points of the bolt and re-engage once you pull in the opposite direction. Just like a ratcheting closed-end, all you have to do to switch from forward to reverse is flip the wrench over.”
“Wurth USA is extremely honored to receive a Pro Tool Innovation Award. We are especially proud of the fact that this award was decided by industry professionals who know and rely on tools to perform their jobs everyday. Those are our customers. Those are the people we serve everyday. Our quality Würth Hand Tools are designed to make their jobs easier. We share this recognition with all of our colleagues and partners - thank you for relying on Würth.” – Christine Pearse, Head Of Product, Wurth USA
After pouring over several hundred power tools, hand tools, fasteners, products, and accessories, PTIA winners were judged and eventually chosen based on a combination of factors. These included innovative features, advanced power delivery, groundbreaking ergonomics, technological advancements, advancements in jobsite safety, and value. This year's PTIA winners represent the innovation leaders in the construction industry with recognition for having best-in-class products that are truly ahead of their time.
This year, 89 different manufacturers and brands submitted over 470 products in dozens of categories for a chance to take home a 2021 Pro Tool Innovation Award.
"This is our 9th year hosting the PTIA Awards and we continue to be amazed at the level of innovation revealed through manufacturers' relentless pursuit of innovation. We saw phenomenal innovation in the areas of jobsite efficiency, safety, and productivity. Bold technology and advanced features also dominated new construction technology with advances that resulted in never-before-seen products. We continue to see increases in cordless tool run-time and battery capacity as well as smarter designs that take advantage of the latest breakthroughs in material science. While average products see incremental change, Pro Tool Innovation Award winners truly distinguish themselves in the industry and deserve particular recognition," said Clint DeBoer, Executive Director of the Pro Tool Innovation Awards.
