Ingersoll Rand Donates Power Tools For Education

Ingersoll Rand, a global manufacturer of compressed air systems and services, power tools, material handling, and fluid management equipment, donated a full suite of its vehicle service power tools, valued at approximately $10,000, as part of its first Ingersoll Rand Race Day. The donation, including the new W5330 Cordless Right Angle Impactool and the IQv12 Series of cordless tools, was made to Hunterdon County Polytech Career and Technical School on Tuesday, June 3, in Annandale, New Jersey.

The purpose of the Ingersoll Rand Race Day is to engage, excite and educate employees and customers about technical automotive industries and Ingersoll Rand tools with a focus on the Ingersoll Rand racing program.

The event featured the Ingersoll Rand hauler used at NASCAR racing events with interactive product displays such as a pit crew tire-changing challenge. Attendees were also able to meet NASCAR driver Will Kimmel and see the #69 Kimmel Racing Ford used at ARCA Series races. Among the attendees were employees, local officials, automotive technicians, mobile jobbers, industrial customers and students who use Ingersoll Rand tools as part of their training.

"Ingersoll Rand Race Day events are a great opportunity to enhance our customer partnerships, demonstrate our product and service capabilities, and to recognize our employees for their efforts to innovate and serve our customers,” said John Evans, president of power tools at Ingersoll Rand.
