IRWIN Launches National Tradesperson Program

IRWIN, a manufacturer of hand tools and power tool accessories, has kicked off its 10th annual ‘National Tradesperson Day’ program, celebrating the Canadian men and women who help build the country and keep it running. Celebrated on the third Friday of September, this year’s event will take place on September 18. For 10 years, IRWIN employees and retail partners have personally thanked tens of thousands of tradespeople and celebrated their unsung contributions across the country. This year, IRWIN kicked off its annual celebration of Canada’s tradespeople in August with thank-you messages across social and digital media, radio, and television. In September, different trades will be featured on social media and tradespeople at jobsites across the country will receive thank-you gifts from Irwin. As well, it will once again be running a contest to choose the ‘2020 Tradesperson of the Year.’ This year, the finalist will be awarded a grand prize of $15,000 in cash and tools.
