Knowing that our team can work with confidence with great products boosts the desire and need to continue to strive for better and constructive results. In the beginning of the competition we were given a tool storage unit priced at $10,000. Since then, we have received a yearly $5,000 budget to purchase necessary tools. While our team works with our trusted sustaining-level sponsor, we know that in addition to providing our team with top quality tools, Snap-on also excels in customer satisfaction, meeting our expectations, and granting the option to voice our thoughts if necessary to further our endeavors in this competition.

Snap-on’s integrity continues to be demonstrated through their success and promotion of teamwork, high regard for individuality, and pursuit of innovation.
