Ingersoll-Rand Donates Tools to Help Aid in Hurricane Relief



ANNANDALE, N.J. — Ingersoll-Rand Productivity Solutions, a leading supplier of tools and technologies, recently donated air tools and accessories to the Tools for Techs Program, an effort geared toward helping mechanics and body shop workers in areas recently devastated by hurricanes Katrina, Wilma, and Rita.

The tools donated by Ingersoll-Rand Productivity Solutions are an attempt to help mechanics and body shop workers get back to work as quickly as possible.

“I would like to personally thank every member of the Ingersoll-Rand family for the generous donation,” said Todd Hoffman, executive director for Scene of the Accident, Inc. “Air tools were the most needed items by technicians and the Ingersoll-Rand donation will fill an immediate need.”

According to Hoffman, a majority of the tools donated by Ingersoll-Rand have been sent to shops in Key West, Fla. Shops in the area were able to salvage many tools after Hurricane Wilma, but many lost their air tools.

“We are extremely happy to be able to make this donation to the Tools for Techs Program,” said Leif Selstad, director of worldwide marketing for Ingersoll-Rand Vehicle Service. “The mechanics and body shop professionals are important to Ingersoll-Rand, and this donation is our way of saying thank you.”
