Wiha tools: Award for ergonomic handle size concept
Schonach, Mai 2016 — The ergonomic handle size concept on Wiha screwdrivers has clinched the title of “Best of 2016” in the Research and Development category of the Industry prize awards. After being distinguished with the AGR quality seal in November 2015, this is the second award to be won by the sophisticated, ergonomic handle size concept by the hand tool manufacturer from the Black Forest.
The INDUSTRIEPREIS aims to honour particularly cutting-edge industrial products with high economic, social, technological and ecological benefits. Wiha Tools GmbH impressed the independent jury, which was made up of industry experts, professors and specialist journalists, and is thus amongst the very best of the submitted applicants.
The ergonomic handle size concept by Wiha, which is used on screwdrivers in the SoftFinish, SoftFinish electric, SoftFinish ESD and MicroFinish ranges, aims to offer users more comfortable, longer and above all, pain-free working. In contrast to most standard handles by tool manufacturers, this concept offers small handles that fit optimally in the hand for the highest level of precision and control, whilst the large handles are ideal for powerful fastening with the integrated hard and soft zones. The concept was already distinguished by the AGR quality seal from AGR e.V. (Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V. – German Campaign for Healthier Backs).
