MT. PROSPECT, Ill. (February 7, 2024) – With shared principles of hard work, drive and a deep commitment to community, Bosch Power Tools and the Boston Bruins today announced a new sponsorship agreement, solidifying the brand’s position as the Official Power Tools, Power Tool Accessories and Measuring Tools Partner of the Boston Bruins.
Aimed at reaching Boston’s hardest working fans, the partnership between Bosch Power Tools and the Bruins extends to in-stadium signage at TD Garden, an ongoing social media content series highlighting hardworking players throughout the season, community engagement and joint efforts to help empower aspiring careers in the skilled trades.
To celebrate the partnership and the hard work it takes to excel on the ice or at the jobsite, Bosch Power Tools and the Bruins are joining forces to help empower careers in the skilled trades using one relevant yet unexpected resource: a portion of the Bruins’ hockey sticks. In collaboration with Somerville High School’s Center for Career and Technical Education, Bosch Power Tools will donate tools for students in the school’s Carpentry Program and support in guiding students through repurposing Bruins hockey sticks to develop original builds using creativity, know-how and the right tools for the job. Once reimagined, The Boston Bruins Foundation will auction the creations online, raising funds to benefit the school and empower careers in the trades.
“We’re honored to partner with the Boston Bruins and Somerville High School to connect with hard workers in the community and empower the skilled workforce of tomorrow,” said Teresa Sabatino, Director of Brand Marketing Power Tools North America. “Our team is eager to join forces with both organizations to make an impact in the community and cheer alongside the hard workers in Boston.”
With the need for skilled trade workers on the rise, Bosch Power Tools is committed to supporting students who want to start a career in the trades. Whether donating quality power tools, measuring tools, and accessories to trade school programs or hosting educational classes, Bosch’s mission to empower the next generation of workers extends to Boston and beyond.
“Our carpentry students and faculty are excited to partner with these titans in the sports and tool trade worlds. We look forward to further enriching the classroom experience with the help of the Bosch Power Tools and Bruins teams, creating a unique opportunity to support students’ growth,” said James Hachey, Assistant Principal and Director of Career and Technical Education at Somerville High School.
