As pioneers in their fields, DEWALT has been developing innovative installation tools, and Powers Fasteners has been creating anchor solutions for construction projects throughout the world. Powers is a leader in the concrete and masonry fastening industry, specializing in providing solutions for the design and specification phases of construction. Once construction begins, DEWALT has been the trusted brand of choice for Contractors using professional power tools. Both DEWALT and Powers products have been used in the design and construction of many of the world’s most iconic structures.
In 2012, Powers Anchors and Fasteners became part of the DEWALT family, part of the key mission to own the entire project, from the design phase and through the construction phase. Since then, the hard work of bringing the two companies together has been underway. Engineers from both companies began working together, collaborating to design anchors and tools alongside one another to deliver a complete system focused on performance and productivity. Significant investments have been made in expanding the Field Engineering program, a team that works side by side with Structural Engineers to assist in the selection, design and specification of construction fasteners. “The results of this investment have been significant. The latest construction reports show that our products are now specified on many of the largest jobsites throughout the U.S. Today, we unveil the next phase we’ve been working toward since 2012: a complete, cordless installation tool and anchoring system solution under one brand,” said Director of Marketing, Sean Kelly. To insure a successful brand transition, the Powers brand will remain on DEWALT Anchors packaging as “Engineered By Powers.” This strategy will be used on all packaging and literature.
