Dave’s favorite Apex Tool Group tools:

My favorite tools are the Cleco® LiveWire™ cordless fastening tools and Global Controller. The wireless intelligence and technology built into the tools are amazing, and a real competitive advantage for ATG.  Being a car enthusiast, I admire the latest offerings from the fine German and U.S. car manufacturers and am proud that our products are utilized in the assembly process for so many of the best brands.
