“Irwin Tools has always looked for different ways to honor the men and women who play a critical role in building and maintaining our country’s infrastructure, beginning with National Tradesmen Day five years ago and now with our nationwide Nominate a Tradesman contest. We look forward to reading the submissions and continuing to celebrate all that trade professionals do to contribute so meaningfully to our lives,” Mastrone adds.
