TechShop Top 5 Logo 2015_500w“It’s a great honor to receive the 2015 Top 5 Tool Award. What makes this recognition from TechShop so special is that it comes from TechShop readers, the folks who are doing the demanding work of repairing vehicles every day,” said Ben Johnson, director of product management for Mitchell 1. “We’re working hard to continually simplify everyday tasks for auto repair professionals so they can work more efficiently and profitably. Awards like this let us know we’re on the right track.”

Each month, TechShop readers share the top five tools that they use in their shop and on the job. Award-winning companies are determined based on the number of times a company or product is mentioned by shop owners and technicians in the 2015 issue of TechShop in the Top 5 Favorite Tools section.

“Because the winners of the Top 5 Tools Award are picked by the shop owners and technicians who read TechShop magazine and visit our website, it is the only true equipment and tool award chosen by the ultimate customer – the end-user technician or shop owner,” said TechShop Publisher Sean Donohue.

ProDemand provides full OEM repair, estimating, maintenance information and real-world industry insights to help technicians work faster and more accurately.
