Gladiator® GarageWorks is seeking out car enthusiasts to show them ways to utilize stylish yet functional garage organization products to improve the look and feel of their garage. The organization system includes tread plate designed cabinets and appliances, tile floor in a selection of colors and wall components, including an assortment of hooks, bins and baskets.

"Gladiator® GarageWorks offers solutions to all homeowners, but particularly car enthusiasts, who want to protect and showcase their vehicles," said Lou Ann Schafer, senior marketing manager, Gladiator® GarageWorks. "With our modern tread plate and coordinated design, the car doesn't have to be the only prized possession behind garage doors."

In 2008, Gladiator® GarageWorks surveyed consumers on their organization headaches and garage needs. Nearly one-third (32 percent) of respondents said the installation of a garage organization system would mean they could finally park their car in the garage. To help car enthusiasts make this happen, Gladiator brand will showcase key components of its garage organization system, a unique ENERGY STAR® qualified refrigerator designed specifically for the garage and a trailer with inspirational photos of auto enthusiasts' dream garage. In addition, Gladiator brand spokespeople will be on hand to advise consumers how organizational products will help tidy up items in the garage from wrenches and oil cans to buckets and spare tires in order to make room for their cars.
