3 a.m. lawn tractor ride ends in arrest

BY HBSDealer Staff

Michigan police recovered a lawn tractor allegedly stolen from Lowe’s after one of the suspects was discovered riding the vehicle at three o’clock in the morning, according to an article in the Grand Haven Tribune.

An officer from the Muskegon Heights Police Department observed a pick-up truck pulling a John Deere lawn tractor behind it early on Feb. 13. One 30-year-old male suspect was driving the truck, while a 40-year-old man was sitting on the tractor, according to police. After stopping the pair, police said they found price stickers and literature on both the tractor and a new generator in the back of the pick-up truck.

In a follow-up investigation, authorities claimed that the items had been stolen from a Lowe’s store in Muskegon. The items were on display in the front of the building, but security cables and a padlock had both been cut.

Both suspects were booked into Muskegon County Jail.

Digital precision: Just one of the tool trends in Europe

BY Ken Clark

Weight reduction, ergonomic improvement and digital precision are trends pushing the envelope of product development, according to organizers of Internationale Eisenwarenmesse, or the International Hardware Fair. 

The March 4 to 7 event in Cologne, Germany, will bring together more than 2,600 exhibitors from 50 countries.

"Several years ago, a trend arose toward increasing products’ versatility so that they can be used for a broader range of applications," according to the Fair’s press office. "More powerful digital precision tools play a major role in this ongoing trend."

High-end electronic torque wrenches and angle-controlled wrenches that show measurement results on easily readable displays will be on the show floor. So will new multimedia pipe inspection cameras.

New products in the hand tool category at the fair will demonstrate far fewer vibrations, less noise and less dust during grinding than other systems.

Further information is available at eisenwarenmesse.com.

More details on Lowe’s staff reductions

BY HBSDealer Staff

Lowe’s corporate downsizing, initially reported as a reduction in customer service employees, will apply to corporate staff as well, according to an article in the Charlotte Observer.

A letter sent to Lowe’s employees on Feb. 10 by Maureen Ausura, the company’s executive VP human resources, said the retailer wants to streamline processes and identify cost-savings opportunities. Buyout notices were given to eligible employees on Feb. 13, the newspaper reported. Employees who take the buyout will receive a lump-sum payment, based on how long they’ve been with the company.

If enough people do not take the “voluntary separation agreement,” layoffs could follow, Ausura’s letter said. Lowe’s employs 5,200 in its Mooresville and Wilkesboro, N.C., locations. It is not known how many layoffs the company is planning.

Ausura also said the company is restructuring the way it provides bonuses to "reward teamwork and collaboration." Lowe’s is eliminating commissions for most sales positions in stores, according to the letter.
