Do you have a new product idea?  Matco Tools wants to hear about it.

The company is searching for the next product innovation in professional automotive tools through their new “Made By Idea” contest.  

“Matco is known for providing innovative tools and equipment that simplify automotive repair and increase productivity.  Matco means innovation that can be put to work every day by technicians and enthusiasts,” says John Green, vice president of marketing at Matco.  “We are looking for the next great tool or equipment solution through our “Made By Idea” contest.”

Now through March 31, 2012, every new product idea or improvement submitted to Matco will be entered to win an Apple iPad 2 16GB with Wi-Fi.  Plus, if a new product is brought to market, Matco will award 2% of the first year’s sales to the participant, at a minimum of $2,500. 

“We recognize that the best source for product improvement ideas are the people that use these tools every day,” says Green.  “The “Made By Idea” contest is a way to get the word out, leveraging our customer base to solve problems and improve our product offering.”

The contest runs from Nov. 1, 2011, through March 31, 2012.  For complete contest rules or to submit an idea, ask your Matco distributor or visit
