Alltrade Tools 2010 AAPEX Exhibit

This year Alltrade made it all the way to the front row of the show hall with a booth bursting at the seams with new products, merchandisers and programs!

Booth Feature - New Product Gallery

Front and center in the Alltrade booth was a "gallery" of brand new products available for hands-on demonstration.

Booth visitors flocked to this wall of new products to touch and feel some of the most exciting and innovative tools at the show:

 

Booth Feature - New Improved Wave Merchandising System

Retailers can generate significant incremental gross profit dollars with the new improved Powerbuilt Wave Merchandising System. For example, a 48" wave bar will hold 32 Powerbuilt sockets, a 39% increase in SKU count versus a straight bar!

Thanks to compact Powerbuilt packaging, space efficiency gains can be had in other categories too, including drive tools & accessories, screwdrivers, wrenches and pliers.

This display features just a portion of the newly expanded Powerbuilt tool program. Over 300 new products will be added to the program in Q1 2011, bumping the total SKU count to just over 1600!

Booth Feature - Powerbuilt Automotive Tools

Powerbuilt Automotive Tool Program

Adjacent to the mechanic's tool display was a 16 foot display featuring Powerbuilt Automotive Tools. Again, we only had room to showcase a portion of the program - especially installer kits. Just a handful of the 75+ installer kits we carry were on display.

Booth Feature - Powerbuilt Strut Spring Compressor

One new installer kit was highlighted elsewhere in the booth: the new Powerbuilt Strut Spring Compressor. Thanks to a product demonstration kiosk at the front of the booth, this product received lots of attention and interest from show visitors.

The Powerbuilt Strut Spring Compressor

With a suggested retail of $299 - $349, this patented new product is the lowest cost commercial-grade strut spring compressor on the market, offering performance rivaling $600-$800 units. Even better, it operates using an impact gun or ratchet and retains the strut spring in place during strut removal and installation. This item was definitely one of the highlights of the booth.

Booth Feature - Powerbuilt Tool Sets

Powerbuilt Tool Sets & Lift Equipment

Rounding out the Powerbuilt program displays was a 12' run of tool sets and lift equipment. New tool sets introduced at the show included a series of socket sets packaged in compact blow-mold cases. Piece counts range from 25 to 100 pieces, and all sets include the new low-profile Powerbuilt ratchet.
