2005 Innovation Award Winners
The scope of products for automotive repair grows every day with the introduction and upgrade of new tools and equipment. All of them offer some sort of time saving or labor-reducing quality, but the Innovation Award presented by Professional Tool & Equipment News (PTEN), works to recognize truly innovative products that the end-user feels can help save time or make a particular service easier.
In identifying the winners, PTEN calls upon 12 ASE-Certified Master Technicians and Shop Owners to spotlight the best of the best. Selections are based solely on the panel’s frontline-tested observations, thoughts and opinions, and without the input of advertisers or the magazine’s staff.
The following products won an Innovation Award in 2005. A special thanks to our panel for their dedicated service in recognizing the best our industry has to offer.
