The 2020 Pro Tool Innovation Awards brought a realization that even in a tough year, advances continue to extend the capabilities of power tools. Manufacturers are making smarter tool accessories. That includes bits and blades that last longer, drill more quickly, and tackle more materials than ever before. This year, the PTIA Awards revealed some new power tools, hand tools, corded tools, and pneumatic tools we hadn’t expected. Tradesmen seemed to also benefit from tools specific to electrical, plumbing, and air-mechanical trades. Our judging team did not have an easy time of it this year. We hope that everyone including contractors, tradesmen, and business owners notice these new tools and technological advancements. This year highlighted products designed to do more than ever before thought possible, do more for less, and achieve efficiencies we’d only dreamed of before.
