2015 Lineman's Rodeo

Posted on:October 13, 2015 12:51 pm CDT

We've been all about the electricians lately with the recent crowning of our 2015 Electrician of the Year, but we certainly haven't forgotten about our lineman brothers and sisters.

Linemen are a huge part of our heritage. Heck, we have a lineman climbing a pole as part of our logo - our "lineman logo." And the classic story of Mathias Klein, the founder, making the first pair of Klein pliers? Well, he made them for a telegraph lineman, of course.

So, that's why we make it a point to be present at the annual International Lineman's Rodeo & Expo, which is being held this week in Overland Park, KS. The expo runs October 15th and 16th, with the rodeo competition and awards banquet on October 17th.

We've been really busy the last couple of years developing and releasing new products specifically for the utility and heavy industry markets, and we will have a lot of them on display at the Lineman's Rodeo this year.

Here are a few of the newest products that will be there:

I also happen to know that we will have a not-yet-released prototype tool to show and some tools to give away!

If you are going to the rodeo, be sure to stop by Booth 113, to check it all out!

And if you are competing in the rodeo? Good luck!
