Pro Tool Innovation Awards 2023


Having the right tool for the job makes all the difference.

Tools have the power to transform the way we work. They can solve problems on the jobsite, simplify tasks, improve safety and reduce physical strain. From battery-powered solutions and hand tools to outdoor power equipment, creating tools that benefit the tradespeople building our world is at the core of what we do every day.  

Our dedication to innovation led to DEWALT®, CRAFTSMAN®, Mac Tools®, LENOX® and Cub Cadet® being recognized by the 2023 Pro Tool Innovation Awards (PTIA), taking home wins across multiple categories and industries. 

Now in its eleventh year, the Pro Tool Innovation Awards celebrate the innovative tools, accessories and fasteners used in the construction and outdoor power equipment industries. Each year, they award manufacturers, like Stanley Black & Decker, who release game-changing, forward-thinking new products.  

The PTIA judges evaluated more than 465 tools to determine this year’s winners. Winning products were selected based on innovative features like advanced power delivery and technical advancements, improved ergonomics, developments in jobsite safety and overall user value.
