Unrivalled winner – HAZET chosen as "Best Brand" again in 2021 for the 16th time in a row
„MOTORRAD“ magazine has been conducting a reader vote every year since 2006, in which those questioned must decide for 22 different categories which brands and their products they find the most impressive. 51,133 notarised readers took part in this year's vote – well over half of these participants are thoroughly impressed by the products made by the Remscheid-based manufacturer of quality tools and workshop equipment, helping it to win the Best Brand "Tool" category again with a lead of almost 10 % over the brand coming in second place.
"The renewed award for "Best Tool Brand" in MOTORRAD magazine's reader vote is a great honour for us, as it comes directly from our users. The fact that we have now won for the 16th time in a row is confirmation of our innovative tool developments in the sign of the times and the consistently good quality of our tools. At the same time, it is appreciation for our hard work which is needed to meet the high demands of our target group. We're delighted that our products have been so highly appreciated by motorcyclists over all these years and that those taking part in the vote have once again voted us into first place," declared Motorcycles Product Manager Michael Paetsch, together with Marketing Manager Carsten Scholz, after receving the original document at this year's digital awards ceremony at the end of March.
