St. Paul, Minn. (December 12, 2012) – Ergodyne announced today the expansion of their tool storage solutions to include the new Buddy System, available December 27, 2012. Providing a multi-layered approach to tool storage, the new Buddy System increases WorkZone productivity with an organization solution for quick and easy access to tools.

“Traditional tool boxes and bags are prone to messy pile ups of smaller tools and equipment,” said Nate Bohmbach, product manager at Ergodyne. “Our Arsenal® Buddy System™ offers a unique fix for any state of disorder.”

The Arsenal® Buddy System™ product line includes:

  • The 5850K Buddy System is a tool carrier with four colored clamshells for organizing tools and equipment.

  • The 5875 and 5876 Buddy Organizers are 2-pocket clamshell designs ideal for keeping tools and accessories organized. Workers can organize multiple color-coded clamshells in a larger storage container for quick access and increased productivity.

“Our expanding Arsenal® Tool Storage line aims to increase productivity on the jobsite,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO of Ergodyne. “By decreasing the time spent digging through a tool bag, workers have more time to get after the job at hand – and that’s what we like to see.”
