Snap-on Tools Featured on “How it’s Made”

KENOSHA, Wis. – December 4, 2008 – When the producers of “How it’s Made,” the Discovery Channel and Discovery Science Channel TV show about how everyday products are produced wanted to show how the best tools in the world are manufactured, they called the best - Snap-on Tools.

“We were honored and flattered when the producers of ”How it’s Made” contacted us and asked if they could show how some of our Snap-on products are manufactured,” said Alicia Smales, vice president of marketing for Snap-on Tools.  “Service technicians consider Snap-on tools to be the best so this is a great opportunity to show the rest of the world why these experts feel that way.”

Currently airing on the Discovery Channel and Discovery’s Science Channel, “How it’s Made” is a documentary program showing how everyday items are manufactured.  Six Snap-on tools were chosen to be used in “How it’s Made” including a pneumatic impact wrench, ratchet, combination wrench, socket/extension set, screwdriver set and a rolling red toolbox.  The show airs in over 180 countries and reaches over 100 million viewers.  The first two episodes featuring Snap-on tools will air on the Science Channel:
