Electrification and cordless power have become a focus for us as both the market adoption of and demand for these products are accelerating.

In our Tools, Outdoor and Industrial businesses, the benefits today and in the future of further electrification are significant. In outdoor power equipment, for example, battery-operated products are safer, deliver significantly lower emissions and are much quieter versus their gasoline-powered counterparts.

Our portfolio of products continues to advance and replace the fumes and noise of gas-powered handheld outdoor power equipment such as trimmers, blowers and push mowers with powerful battery-powered tools with increased runtime. Through relentless innovation, we will continue to penetrate these categories as well as electrified riding mowers and other outdoor vehicles.

In the automotive world, an estimated 27 million plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles (EV) will be produced annually by 2026. We believe this will be a market inflection point when global production of EVs and hybrids will likely exceed combustion-powered autos. 

How can we accommodate that kind of demand? Through the production of engineered fasteners that play an essential part in helping the automotive industry shift from internal combustion engines to electric power.
