    Greenlee® Introduces Next Generation Line of Tool Bags

  • Apr 06, 2017

    Greenlee Textron Inc., a Textron Inc.(NYSE: TXT) company, introduces a new line of Next Generation tool bags. The innovative Next Generation bags are engineered to reduce strain on the user and withstand wear and tear. In addition, the two back packs allow for customization with a personalized name patch.

    “Greenlee is committed to producing ergonomic tools and products that reduce injury and increase productivity to support the professionals who use them daily,” said Dale Speggen, product manager at Greenlee. “Our network of professional contractors helped to test the Next Generation tool bags and provided valuable feedback. We are confident these durable, long-lasting and lightweight bags will help get the job done.”

    Engineered to be rugged, the Next Generation tool bags can manage heavy loads and harsh work environments. Next Generation bags are constructed from a poly and nylon Ripstop fabric. This construction contains any tear that should ensue, maintaining the durability and utilization of the bag. Critical seams that receive stress from weight are reinforced with double and triple stitching to prevent separation. Next Generation bags are lined with a light green interior to increase visibility of bag contents. A durable, hard plastic bottom keeps dirt and water out and allows the bag to stand in an upright position for easy access.

    The new Next Generation tool bag line features four unique designs to fulfill the exact needs of the professional. Additional features include:

    Professional Tool Backpack (0158-26)

    • Personalized embroidered name patch
    • Designed for the work environment
