(Lincolnshire, IL) – Klein Tools, (http://www.kleintools.com) for professionals since 1857, announced Billy Teaford as the winner of its 2013 Electrician of the Year contest. Billy Teaford, a Southeast region finalist from Fincastle, Virginia was picked from 140+ entries. Mr. Teaford has been an electrician at Roanoke Cement for 40 years, has never had a lost time accident and has the same lock-out tag for 40 years.

“Billy Teaford stood out for his ability to motivate the people around him,” expressed Tom Barton, product marketing manager for Klein Tools.

“Billy demonstrates a passion for electrical safety and professionalism in addition to his charitable work,” stated Mark Klein, vice president domestic sales at Klein Tools. “His enthusiasm is contagious and has gained the respect and following of his co-workers and neighbors alike.”

“No matter what employee it is, they always say ‘thank you for letting me work with Billy’,” said Dan Babish, Roanoke Cement technical manager. “Billy takes the time to teach them about why they are doing something, how to do it properly and why they are doing it this way to help the shift employees down the road… he takes the time to train the next generation of electricians.”

“On behalf of the Salvation Army, we want to congratulate Mr. Billy for his wonderful service he has given to us over the years,” stated Captain Kenneth Argot of the Roanoke Salvation Army. “Billy initiated the bike drive in which over 500 bikes are now delivered annually to the Salvation Army for kids at Christmas time. Without his efforts and without the efforts of those around him and his leadership, that wouldn’t happen.”

Mr. Teaford will receive $2,500 in Klein tools, $2,500 in cash and an ultimate Klein garage package that includes Klein’s 41-piece tool kit, mini-refrigerator, golf bag, bar stools, can insulators, beverage opener tools, and peg board to hold and display his tools.
