Back in 1991, we knew right away we had a good thing going with Mechanix Wear® Gloves. We had no idea what kind of revolution we would start. From the first use of Mechanix Wear® “Original” Gloves by pit crew teams at the Daytona 500, Mechanix Wear® gloves have been the leader in the high performance work glove market. Before we knew it, we had 41 NASCAR® teams asking for our gloves along with just about every other high profile motorsports team in every type of racing!

As a result of the exposure, everyday mechanics, technicians, construction workers, Do-It-Yourselfers, industrial safety, emergency services, and military professionals all benefit from our products.

Every Mechanix Wear® product represents a total commitment to its intended use. We consider everything: fit, feel, function, durability, quality, style and value. There is a lot of dedication and pride in everything we do, and it all adds up to superior performing products for you, our valued customer.

Whether you’re jumping the pit wall at Daytona or just doing a little tune up in the garage, you can have complete confidence that Mechanix Wear® products offer you the best protection in the industry. Mechanix Wear® gloves are for more than just racing, they are for toolboxes everywhere.

 Since our inception in 1991, Mechanix Wear has worked closely with nearly every NASCAR team, developing gloves and other products to significantly improve the safety and performance of pit crews.  Through this close interaction, Mechanix Wear learned how much work and training goes into a successful pit crew.  We soon realized that these crews deserve an annual award to recognize the huge role that a pit crew plays in the success of their race team at the track.

At the beginning of the 2002 NASCAR season, we created and launched the Mechanix Wear Most Valuable Pit Crew (MVPC) Award.  During the racing season, a different crew is selected each quarter as a semi-finalist. At the end of the season, one of the four semi-finalists is chosen as the winner of the award.

To judge the contest each year, Mechanix Wear enlists the help of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series crew chiefs. It is our preference to have the MVPC winners selected on consistent performance under all conditions that also factors in race strategy, car repairs and adjustments, weather, and all of the variables thrown at a crew during race day. We believe the crew chiefs are the most qualified people in the sport to analyze these variables and determine the most valuable crew.  On a quarterly basis and at the end of the season, we ask the crew chiefs to vote for the pit crew who contributes the most to the success of their team on race day.

Going into its ninth year, the Mechanix Wear MVPC Award is the longest running and most coveted pit crew award in NASCAR and has gained tremendous respect on pit road. Any team displaying the Mechanix Wear contingency decal on the front fender of their race car is eligible to win. Nearly every team competes in the contest each year, giving the Mechanix Wear MVPC Award one of the highest levels of participation of any annual NASCAR award.

Each quarterly winner during the 2011 season will receive $5000 and recognition during pre-race ceremonies. The winning crew at the end of the season will win $100,000 and an all expenses paid trip to the NASCAR Awards Ceremony this December in Las Vegas to accept their award.

U.S. Manufacturing Rebounds Post Sandy

Manufacturing Factory Gillette

U.S. factory output posted its sharpest increase in nearly a year in November as auto production staged a rebound, while consumer prices slipped, offering cautious optimism for the struggling economic recovery.
A separate report on Friday bolstered the view that a slowdown in manufacturing may have run its course. Factories have bounced back after being held down by Superstorm Sandy, which struck the East Coast in late October.
Despite last month's rise, factory production remained below highs reached earlier this year. Analysts said this subdued recovery and tame price pressures provide ample scope for the Federal Reserve to stay on its ultra-easy monetary policy path.
"This is an economy that still has a lot of slack and upside potential," said Robert Dye, chief economist at Comerica in Dallas. "There is a lot of dry tinder out there, the Fed has added to that with monetary policy and we have to get past the fiscal cliff issues to see if the dry tinder catches fire."
The fiscal cliff refers to the $600 billion in deep government spending cuts and tax hikes that will hit the economy next year if the Obama administration and Congress fail to agree on a less drastic plan to reduce budget deficits.
Manufacturing output rose 1.1 percent in November, the biggest gain since December 2011 and a rebound from a 1.0 percent drop in the prior month, the Fed said. It said production was lifted by a surge in motor vehicle output.
Sandy had weighed on overall industrial output in October, but the snapback in November was stronger than economists had expected. Output at the nation's factories, mines and utilities taken together also jumped 1.1 percent after slumping 0.7 percent in October. It was the biggest gain in almost two years.
