Powers Fasteners Hires Stephen Ludwig to Expand into the 'Electric Tools & Accessories' Product Segment

In this position, Ludwig will focus on the expanding market of tools specifically designed for anchor drilling and setting.

Brewster based Powers Fasteners is proud to add Stephen Ludwig to its team of fastening and anchoring professionals. Ludwig will serve as Director of the newly developed Electric Tools & Accessories segment. He will work closely with Matthew Chamberlain, Vice President of Engineering & Product, to address the rapidly expanding market of tools specifically designed for anchor drilling and setting. The focus of his responsibilities will be to augment Powers' world-class line of anchoring products with the power tools used to install those products. Ludwig has over a decade of management experience with Dewalt and Apex Tool Group (formerly Danaher) and has extensive hands-on experience in electric tools, product development and channel management.

Powers Chief Executive Officer Jeff Powers believes the electric tool segment and the Ludwig hire are the lynchpin for Powers in satisfying the only missing piece in completion of its anchoring line.

"The professional contractor will be able to buy not only the code listed anchors, fasteners and adhesives as they always have, but now can be fitted with quality Powers branded cordless and corded tools for their unique applications. Everything works perfectly together, with tools uniquely designed to install our products, plus innovative accessories to make the installation distinctively faster and easier. It creates an unmatched value proposition that only a committed Powers distributor can provide, as well as benefit from, being a single source for everything a contractor needs to start and finish a great anchoring installation," Powers states.
