From New York to Chicago, Charlotte to Boston, tradesmen are being honored across America today on National Tradesmen Day. This day of celebration is a day to say “thanks” to plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics and other skilled tradesmen who typically receive little recognition for important work that keeps our nation running strong. This year’s recognition includes appreciation events at jobsites and building supply centers, individual gestures of thanks throughout the nation and a multi-million dollar advocacy campaign by IRWIN Tools thanking America’s skilled tradesmen.
On Friday, a mega event at One World Trade Center in New York City will provide opportunity for IRWIN employees to personally thank the 5,000 tradesmen who raised this building above Ground Zero. Other events will take place in Chicago, Charlotte, Boston and other cities across the country. In total, IRWIN and its retail partners will personally thank 125,000 professional tradesmen on National Tradesmen Day.
“Tradesmen are accustomed to having their work overlooked and taken for granted,” says Rich Mathews, senior vice president of Marketing for IRWIN Tools. “These men and women deserve their own special day of recognition to know we appreciate the hard work they put in each day. IRWIN Tools is proud to lead this effort and I hope people nationwide will join us.”
IRWIN initiated National Tradesmen Day in 2011. Each year it takes place on the third Friday of September. All Americans can take part in National Tradesmen Day by acknowledging the work tradesmen do each day.
