DeWalt Announces New Line of Heavy-Duty Job Site Storage Boxes
April 2007 - DEWALT, a leading manufacturer of industrial power tools, today announced the launch of a new heavy-duty line of storage boxes, all designed with the exclusive GearGuard(TM) multi-point locking system. The storage boxes are designed for professional contractors, electricians, remodelers, general contractors, mechanical contractors, plumbers, and HVAC professionals who are looking for a secure, tough and versatile storage solution for their valuable tools. "Greenlee has entered into a licensing agreement with DEWALT to manufacture, sell and market seven types of DEWALT-branded heavy-duty storage boxes to non-traditional Greenlee markets," said J. Scott Hall, Greenlee president. "At the same time, Greenlee will continue to produce, distribute and market its own comprehensive line of storage boxes to customers in the electrical marketplace." "We entered this partnership with Greenlee because the company has a 145-year history of being a market leader and innovator in extending its product lines to meet their customers' needs," said Terry Rakosky, Director of Brand Licensing for DEWALT. "We believe Greenlee will deliver the same secure, tough and versatile heavy-duty storage solutions for DEWALT customers as it does for contractors in the electrical marketplace." The new line includes four types of heavy-duty storage chests (DWJB1332, DWJB 2448, DWJB 2460, and DWJB 3048), slant-top (DWJB 3660) and flat-top (DWJB 4860) boxes and a storage cabinet (DWJB 5660L). All boxes in the line are equipped to utilize a shackleless padlock from American Lock®, the most secure padlock available. A reinforced three-inch thick lid and large, sturdy hinges provide added safety and durability. Other features within the line include skyhooks that allow for fast and safe lifting of storage boxes, especially on the job site. An electrical access port enables end-users to recharge batteries while they are securely locked inside. A textured industrial powder-coat paint finish and overlapping welds offer better protection. Heavy-duty casters and storage trays are two accessory options available to the customer as well. The new product line of heavy-duty storage boxes is available today through authorized Greenlee and DEWALT distributors.
