Mirabel, Canada lost one a cherished community member this past month, Daniel “Burn” Brunet. Brunet was known as an avid Klein Tools fan, and the company was shocked to hear of his unfortunate passing. Since its creation, Brunet ran the Klein Tools Fan Facebook page, Klein Tools Collectors. This page was created to give fans a space to talk about new products, clever hacks and more.
It was not a question to the 165-year-old family-owned company out of Chicago suburb Lincolnshire, Klein Tools wanted to create something that will help Burn’s memory live throughout the brand and provide support for his family. The idea of the honorary Daniel Brunet pliers was turned around and raffled off to fans within a week. These pliers raised over $10,000 for the Brunet family.
“Our fans go above any beyond consistently for us, and Burn was often at the forefront. It was only right to do something to recognize how important he was to the Klein Tools family,” said Greg Palese, Vice President of Marketing at Klein Tools.
