Which Apex Tool Group brands make you the most proud?

I’m proud of the commitment to innovation coming from all our 36 brands. On the hand tool side of our business, we have SATA®, which is the hands-down market leader in China. GearWrench® shook up the North American automotive hand tool business with the introduction of the 5º ratcheting wrench in 1996 and never stopped innovating. In power tools, our Cleco® brand has taken a technological approach to assembly lines by building intelligence into the tools, and as a result created solutions that deliver real improvements in productivity. Last, but not least, our soldering products from Weller® touch nearly every smartphone in the marketplace at some point during manufacturing before reaching the consumer.
