The Most Read of 2020

Well, 2020 was an interesting year with so many changes to how we work, live, and socialize! Despite the tumultuous nature of the year, there was still cause to celebrate, and here at Gordon we celebrated the kind acts of our friends, colleagues, and partners with the creation of our Gordon Go-Getter page of the blog. It never ceased to amaze us how our community and industry came together.

Last year also had some new products introduced and new additions to the Gordon team. We are proud of everyone for making it through 2020! And thank you to all of blog readers for sticking with our puns and trips down memory lane. This top 3 list of the most read Product Talk posts is possible because of you. So without further ado, the three most read posts of 2020:

  1. Better Than a Lunchable and Bubblegum Rope! We introduced the new and improved Scotch Super 33+ Electrical Tape by 3M while learning about trends of the 90’s.
  2. If you haven’t been checked, then maybe it’s time!! We revisited a favorite from 2019 in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The pink 3M hardhats are a Gordon favorite!
  3. You’re not cool, unless you have a cooling towel! Back in July, all we could think about was beating the summer heat on the job, which made our discovering of the cooling towel by Klein Tools all the more exciting.

Happy New Year and here’s to 2021!

You’re not cool, unless you have a cooling towel!

Man, it’s been a hot one this summer!!! Forget about frying an egg on the sidewalk; this kind of heat would fry an egg inside the chicken.

If you have to work outside or if you working inside with no air conditioning it’s brutal!

Unfortunately, sticking you head in a bucket of cool water is great, but it doesn’t last.

The good news is that Klein has a great product to cool you down and keep you cooled down. And the best part? It is reusable!
