About the Event :
The presentation will include a brief overview of Snap-On including their history and current product line up. Presenters Gary Wollert & John Fuhreck (Both SAE Milwaukee Section Members) will then talk about what has changed in both the business model and product design cycle in the last 10 years? Especially with other tool companies who used to be more of a complimentary tool or non-competitor, who may now be competing on some product lines. Also, automotive technology changes at a very rapid pace and with so many electric vehicles coming out, what effect is this having on product lines? A Q&A session will follow.
