This week along with all the tech coming out of our four shops, we roll a MATCO Tools truck into the PowerNation studio for Katie. Well almost, it didn’t fit! So Katie’s guest this week Ben Gambrel, V.P. of Marketing, filled the studio with the latest line of MATCO Tool boxes called Revel.

Ben will also talk about some of the new technology that’s available, plus Josh Kessell will share what the typical day is like for a MATCO Tools franchise owner.
