Snap-on wins Frost & Sullivan Technicians' Choice Awards
Snap-on Inc. has won seven Frost & Sullivan 2006 Technicians’ Choice Awards.
Frost & Sullivan randomly surveyed professional automotive technicians in the U.S. and the United Kingdom, asking them to select the brand they considered to be the best in each evaluative category from a list of market competitors. The survey measured brand preferences for hand tools, power tools, hand-held scan tools and tool storage devices based on best quality.
Snap-on was a winner in nearly all tool product categories, with automotive technicians in the U.S. and the U.K. selecting Snap-on by a large margin as the best overall brand for hand tools, scan tools and tool storage. Technicians in the United Kingdom also selected Snap-on as the best brand of power tools in the survey.
“We are gratified with the results of Frost & Sullivan’s Technicians’ Choice Awards, especially since the winners were selected by the auto technicians themselves,” said Al Biland, senior vice president of Snap-on and president of Snap-on Tools Co. LLC.
“The accolades, combined with the convincing winning percentages, further underscore Snap-on’s commitment to innovation, quality, durability and superior customer service. We are proud to be viewed as the brand-of-choice for tools for the automotive professional.”
According to Frost & Sullivan, Snap-on led in all areas explored including “Best Quality,” “Most Innovative,” “Best Retailer Customer Service” and “Overall Best Brand.” In most instances, Snap-on’s winning percentage for overall best brand was significant over the second place contender.
