Milwaukee New Product Symposium 2016 Highlights

Milwaukee New Product Symposium 2016 Highlights

After most media events we try and post an article with an aggregation of highlights curated from our social media feeds. Many of you are too busy building, remodeling, and fixing to be able to follow these updates in real-time so we want to put them all in one place so that you won’t miss a thing.

We’ve been to the Milwaukee New Product Symposium media events in the past and this year lived up to its predecessors. There were lots of new developments especially around the OneKey platform and even expansion into OPE (Outdoor Power Equipment). Lighting also saw a huge expansion. The biggest thrill for us though was getting to play with the new 18V FUEL 10″ Miter Saw. We can’t wait to get this and the other tools out onto the job site and into the shop and tell you more about them.

This year, many of our updates were on our Instagram account. If you’re not following us yet, give us a follow. We post not only media events but shop and job site photos as well.
