Irwin Sponsors Second National Tradesmen Day

Second annual celebration of America's tradesmen set for Friday, Sept. 21, 2012.

IRWIN Tools Invites the Nation to Honor “The Real Working Hands that Build America and Keep it Running Strong.”

The second annual National Tradesmen Day will be held on Friday, Sept. 21, 2012, and IRWIN Tools, a world-class manufacturer of a broad line of professional hand tools and power tool accessories, encourages all Americans to make plans to recognize America’s tradesmen – the men and women who are the backbone of a great nation.

The country’s skilled craftsmen – “The Real Working Hands that Build America and Keep it Running Strong” – should be proud of their incredible skills and talents, and they deserve to be recognized for their hard work, which is often performed in difficult environments under stressful conditions.

National Tradesmen Day, held each year on the third Friday in September, is intended to be a day when the nation pauses to thank skilled workers like auto mechanics, roofers, bricklayers, plumbers, woodworkers, electricians, carpenters, etc.

During last year’s inaugural National Tradesmen Day festivities, many people found ways to show appreciation and gratitude for tradesmen by holding celebrations, recognition events and activities throughout the country.

This year, IRWIN is coordinating multiple activities throughout the nation and is partnering with retailers and community groups for National Tradesmen Day celebrations. For more information about ‘National Tradesmen Day,’ visit
