KENOSHA, WI – Snap-on Incorporated has won seven 2006 Technicians’ Choice Awards from global growth consulting company Frost & Sullivan. The awards, which measure the everyday tool preferences of automotive technicians in the United States and the United Kingdom, will be awarded at Frost & Sullivan’s annual 2007 Best Practices Awards Banquet on Feb. 7, 2007 in Anaheim, Calif.

Snap-on was a winner in nearly all tool product categories, with automotive technicians selecting Snap-on by a large margin as the best overall brand for hand tools, scan tools, and tool storage in both the United States and United Kingdom. Technicians in the United Kingdom also selected Snap-on as the best brand of power tools in the survey.

For the awards, Frost & Sullivan randomly surveyed professional automotive technicians and asked the respondents to select the brand they considered to be the best in each evaluative category from a list of market competitors.
