“The ICUEE Show is one of the premier utility shows in North America, and provides Textron the opportunity to display our strength in ergonomics, safety, and productivity through enhanced technology all in one setting,” said Scott Hall, President of Greenlee and Textron Industrial Segment.

A variety of products will be highlighted with demonstration areas where attendees can see the ergonomic benefits of the tools. Attendees will be able to participate in the “Utility Bucket Challenge” and cut and crimp cable in a simulated overhead bucket with Greenlee battery tools.
