Milwaukee Tool has become a SMACNA premier partner.

The ductwork fabrication and HVAC construction toolmaker is now part of the Sheet Metal and Air-Conditioning Contractors’ National Association’s industry partnership program, which will allow it to work with the 1,800-member union contractor group and showcase Milwaukee’s products to members.

“We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to increase our partnership and support with an innovative organization like SMACNA, said Bill Hughes, Milwaukee Tool’s senior vice president of jobsite solutions and service. “This partnership reflects a shared passion for the skilled trades, and will allow us to continue to ensure we provide the most innovative solutions for MRO (maintenance, repair and operations) and HVAC professionals for years to come. We look forward to collaborating with SMACNA to drive this vision and work toward a common goal.”

Becoming a SMACNA premier partner means that Milwaukee Tool will be able to have a high profile at the trade show that will take place during the association’s October annual convention in Phoenix.

SMACNA President Guy Gast of Waldinger Corp. said the association is glad to add the toolmaker to its list of premier partners.

“SMACNA is pleased to welcome Milwaukee Tool as one of our premier partners,” Gast said. “They are known to all as an outstanding industry leader in both their tooling and technology. Their commitment to SMACNA contractors represents opportunity and growth for all.”
