Wiha celebrates 85 years with a “special twist”

Hand tool manufacturer and tool range provider Wiha is celebrating its 85th birthday this year. As a “tribute” to the long history of the company and its development, the globally renowned traditional company is presenting the limited edition SoftFinish® 85 years screwdriver set to mark the occasion.
The multifunctional flashlight from Wiha has gone from strength to strength since its market launch a few years ago. Following up on this success, Wiha is now presenting four additional work light solutions based on the same concept of maximising the benefits with a compact size. Where dark work environments could otherwise hamper the work of professionals, the following solutions throw light on the matter, even if no electricity is available: rechargeable floodlight, two handlamps, and a headlamp. Each is a convincing solution in its own right, due to adjustable luminance levels or different light modes. Depending on the version, practical attachment options and ingenious functional refinements ensure easy and efficient use. A magnetic mount and a 360° rotating suspension hook on the floodlight, dimming function and sensor-based on and off switching of the handlamps or headlamps are just a few of the special features. Each product is impact resistant and splash water protected, which makes them reliable rugged everyday companions on construction sites or similar work environments.
Hand tool manufacturer Wiha was able to score double at this year's iF DESIGN AWARD, making it among the proud winners of the prestigious international design label. The award was granted to the Wiha tool backpack sets and the multifunctional pliers 8in1 electric in the Industry/Tools category of the Product sector. The iF Design Award is presented once a year by world's oldest independent design institution, the iF International Forum Design GmbH.
Manual tool manufacturer Wiha is presenting a new variation of their electric screwdriver range – the speedE® PocketDrive. It is distinguished by its versatility and maximised range of application options. Whether screw connections of sensitive components, fixation tasks in shell construction, work on cable channels, industrial mounting tasks, or wood screw connections, for example, for furniture assembly – as a truly all-round tool, the new Wiha screwdriver with electric drive is the ideal daily companion for a great variety of professionals and areas of work. Fastening jobs are completed much faster, power saving and gentler on muscles and joints compared to fastening by hand.
Wiha is pleased to announce receiving the PLUS X AWARD "Best brand of the year 2024" in the "tool" category. Only recently, the tool backpack of the hand tool manufacturer also received the PLUS X Award in the four categories of high quality, design, user convenience and functionality.
“STRONG AND BRIGHT” was the motto of Wiha at this year's Light + Building trade fair in Frankfurt. The German hand tool manufacturer surprised visitors with a new product of its e-screwdriver family with stronger rotation power and a larger application range: The speedE® PocketDrive. The product innovations of 2023, such as the Wiha tool backpack were also included in the presentation. Wiha was especially pleased by the fact that immediately on the first day of the fair, this backpack received the prestigious Designplus Award by Light + Building in the category Sustainability + Efficiency PLUS.
