Weather Guard was awarded “Best Truck Box” at the 2019 Pro Tool Innovation Awards (PTIA) for their Lighted Truck Box with PowerSync Technology. The truck tool box was recognized for its industry-first, out-of-the-box lighted design, excellent tool storage capabilities, and easy installation, according to Weather Guard.
PTIA honors the year’s most innovative storage products in the residential and commercial construction industry. Weather Guard was one of several leading manufacturers recognized.
“At Weather Guard, we strive to develop the highest-quality products that address user-specific needs and applications on the jobsite and at home,” said Brian Kagen, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Product Development for WernerCo. “It is an honor to be recognized for the Lighted Truck Box, one of our most highly-anticipated truck box launches.”
The Pro Tool Innovation Awards recognize the best-in-class tools and tool accessories that are truly innovative for professional users and that are shaping the industry. After reviewing more than 360 products in several dozen categories, a panel of industry judges identified winners based on innovative features, advanced power delivery, groundbreaking ergonomics, technological advancements, and value. The diverse judging panel was comprised of contractors, construction business owners, tradesmen, and media professionals who used their industry experience to determine the most noteworthy products.
The judges noted that “Weather Guard is the first to pull off an out-of-the-box lighted truck tool box, and it’s clear the product team put a lot of thought into the design. It has a better fit, finish and function than many first-generation products we see.”
