2014 Pro Tool Innovation Award Winners

2014 Pro Tool Innovation Awards

In•no•vate – verb. To make changes in something established, especially by introducing new methods, ideas, or products.


To innovate is an action. Innovation doesn’t take place by standing on the sidelines and observing other people doing what they do. It’s trying something and failing, then figuring out how to make it work. It’s seeing someone modify what’s already there and working it out as a standard feature in your own design. It’s raising the bar for what can be done. It’s breaking through limitations. It’s not listening to the doubters that say “it can’t be done.” It’s about physics and chemistry working together with engineers and product managers to produce some of the best tools on the planet. That’s the Pro Tool Innovation Awards.

We asked and they delivered. 40 different manufacturers submitted tools across more then 100 categories to determine if they had the most innovative products of 2014. We asked for everything from cordless, corded, pneumatic, and hand tools. For storage, clothing, and accessories. Anything that would potentially be used in the construction industry was fair game.


The tools that were submitted aren’t bargain bin clearance items, they’re not average, they’re not inside-the-box. Each one of these tools pushed the envelope in some way. Some tested the limits at the edge while others flew past the line like it never even existed.

We’re seeing cordless tools that can outperform corded models. Tools that have been around for decades that are still being improved. Electricity is being converted into heat for clothing. Tools are getting smaller, lighter, stronger, and more powerful. Batteries are producing more power, running longer, and performing in conditions unthinkable before. Some people want to go to the moon, others are building the tools that can get them there.
