Milwaukee Tool and ABC have Announced a Strategic Partnership
ABC chapters and contractor members will benefit from the toolmaker’s solutions for a safer, more profitable, and productive jobsite.
The Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) and Milwaukee Tool have formed a strategic partnership that will provide ABC chapters and contractor members with solutions for a safer, more profitable, and productive jobsite.
Milwaukee Tool is the only manufacturer of power tools, hand tools, storage, and accessories to be named an ABC strategic partner, according to the company.
ABC President and CEO Michael Bellaman stated “As ABC’s newest strategic partner, Milwaukee Tool joins a group of hand-selected, trusted resources that help ABC members develop people, win work and deliver that work safely, ethically and profitably for the betterment of the communities in which they work.”
According to the terms of the agreement, Milwaukee Tool will work with ABC, its 69 chapters, and six other strategic partners to advance the industry. In addition, the manufacturer will continue as the official tool sponsor of ABC’s National Craft Championships (NCC), a relationship that began in 2019.
“ABC looks forward to working alongside Milwaukee Tool and our six other fantastic strategic partners to further advance the construction industry. This company believes in investing the time to work side by side with contractors to understand the demands of their constantly changing workplace and deliver best-in-class solutions for a safer, more productive jobsite.” Bellaman continued.
The annual NCC competition honors lifelong learning in the merit shop construction industry, with craft trainees from chapter and member training programs across the country competing for national recognition in over a dozen crafts during the ABC convention.
Milwaukee Tool’s president of sales, Darrell Hendrix in a statement said “One-third of ABC chapters already partner with Milwaukee Tool, making this strategic partnership between ABC and Milwaukee a smart one. For nearly 100 years, it has been our mission to deliver advanced, trade-specific solutions to professional contractors. Through this partnership, we will have even more opportunities to work with ABC members to better understand their needs to continue improving workplace safety and enhancing productivity.”
ABC is a national trade association for the construction industry that was founded in 1950 and has over 21,000 members.
