Our JLC 2023 Experience
We had an amazing time at JLC Live 2023 in Providence, RI, which was our first official trade show in the US. The experience exceeded our expectations, and we had the opportunity to connect with both old and new friends while introducing our new Innovatools Modular Brake to the market. Our booth was buzzing with excitement as we showcased our Innovatools 10’6” Modular Heavy Duty Brake with 24” deep throat, which comes with a variety of lengths and throat depth options, along with our innovative Two-Way Cutter, Measuring Tool, Material Stopper, Anvil extensions, as well as our line of radius adjustable Multi-Trowel.

Being able to demonstrate the value of our tools to contractors in person and showcasing the advantages of our Next Generation Products was incredibly rewarding and educational for everyone involved. John Miller, a veteran in the industry since the early 80’s who has worked within the brake industry for more than 40 years, conducted up-close live demos that left a lasting impression on our visitors. In his words "Nothing has changed in this industry in over 30 years and I am happy to be working alongside Alex and the Innovatools staff to introduce the Next Generation of Modular Brakes and Brake accessories." Having someone like John, who has been working in the bending brake industry for decades, standing alongside us and sharing our story was truly invaluable. It meant the world to us to have someone with such expertise endorsing our products and helping us spread the word about our innovative, Next-Generation of tools for the bending industry.
