Metabo HPT, formerly Hitachi Power Tools, announced it is joining Generation T, a national movement launched by Lowe’s Home Improvement to address the widening skilled trades gap.

Gen T seeks to drive enrollment in skilled trade training and build a pipeline of skilled trade workers to offset the anticipated gap of 3 million jobs by 2028.

One key component of the movement is a first-of-its-kind national skilled jobs marketplace, available on the Gen T website, that connects people to prospective apprentices.

“Metabo HPT is proud to be a part of this movement, and we are excited about how we can support strengthening our key trade customers,” said Joe Leffler, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Metabo HPT. “Helping drive awareness in support of our future trades men and women throughout the country is vital.”
