Beachwood, NJ (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
Wire Surgeon® Wire & Kevlar Scissors from QuickTreX® have been selected Winner of the 2012 Electrical Construction & Maintenance (EC&M) Product of the Year competition in the Hand Tool Category.
All category winners will now be included in an online readers' poll on the EC&M website starting April 9th, which will determine the 2012 Product of the Year platinum, gold, and silver winners.
This year the EC&M magazine editorial staff chose a panel of 10 judges – including electrical professionals representing the design/engineering, contracting and facilities/maintenance industries - from a pool of the magazine’s readers. After careful evaluation, the judges voted on 129 entries in 31 categories and determined the Wire Surgeon Wire & Kevlar Scissors entry to be the top product in the Hand Tools category.
The EC&M Product of the Year competition was established in 2000 to honor excellence in new product development in the electrical industry. Now in its twelfth year, the prestigious awards program showcases the most innovative products of the past year and recognizes the talent and commitment of the people involved with every aspect of development, from concept through sales and marketing. EC&M proudly bestows these awards on inventive products that help electrical professionals do their jobs more efficiently and effectively.
“This honor is especially thrilling for QuickTreX,” said company president Tony Casazza, “because this company was founded on the premise of developing high quality products that are really in tune with the needs of the people who use them. To be recognized as such is very reaffirming that we are meeting our goal. The versatile Wire Surgeon Wire & Kevlar Scissors are a great multi-use tool for electricians and structured network cabling installers.”
The blades of the Wire Surgeon Wire & Kevlar Scissors are crafted in Germany with ultra precision Solingen serrated stainless steel, which holds up under extreme use, for clean and precise cutting of wire, Kevlar, braiding, etc. Slight serrations on the blade prevent wire slippage and make dependable precise cuts possible.
The scissors incorporate an easy-to-use wire stripper and a splice & terminal crimper that can be used for copper wires from 26 to 18 AWG. This adds functionality and makes them also ideal for those doing security systems and other low-voltage work. The ergonomically designed soft rubber handle provides fatigueless use suitable for right or left-handed people.
The industry-wide recognition of this award highlights the fact that QuickTreX has quickly become a leader in the electrical industry. This is gratifying to Casazza, who went ahead with launching the company in 2010, despite the uncertain economic times.
