After being presented with the award by Justin Moorhouse and especially Addam Smith which was another highlight of the night, Kevin and Mike were rushed back stage to give a short interview to camera, they thanked On The Tools for a fantastic night but paid special attention to the customers and supporters of Metabo UK and thanked all that had voted for them, “this award is much for our customers as it is for Metabo”.
