HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. - To recognize that tradesmen are the backbone of the nation, Irwin® Tools will honor them on Sept. 16, 2011 and invites the country to celebrate National Tradesmen Day, too.

“Tradesmen are the bedrock of America,” said Curt Rahilly, vice president of marketing for Irwin Tools, “and we invite the nation to be a part of National Tradesmen Day, to honor the men and women who contribute to our lives in so many meaningful ways.

“We hope that, by focusing attention on professional tradesmen on this day, we will recognize the role that they play each and every day. All of us should thank the skilled workers who build America and keep our nation running strong. Whether through a national proclamation, or a simple box of doughnuts taken to a jobsite, we can show tradesmen that we appreciate their work,” Rahilly emphasized.

Irwin is coordinating multiple activities throughout the nation and is partnering with retailers and community groups to ensure that the inaugural year’s event sets a strong precedent for the annual celebration, according to Rahilly. Each year, the event will be held on the third Friday in September.
