Accessory materials such as wire-end sleeves and connectors are now offered in top quality and with a functional packaging concept for their selection, storage and presentation in Wiha retail stores. The extension to the product assortment for the electrician’s trade is the manufacturer's next step in offering its electricians target group a well-rounded product selection tailored to their needs. The Wiha concept has several advantages for retailers and users, because small parts used in large quantities are now handled in a much more convenient, user-friendly way, as opposed to the typically time-consuming, confusing, unstructured approach used previously.
Hand tool manufacturer Wiha’s new website, which went online in spring 2019, focuses sharply on its visitors’ and target groups’ needs. It does this in such a unique way that it has been honoured with the coveted Shop Usability Award®.
Schonach, November 2019. The jury for Red Dot Award: Brands & Communication Design 2019 is impressed.

It can be used for all tasks where screws can be fastened with conventional screwdrivers, making things far easier for users: areas of use include machining, industrial maintenance and assembly, motorised equipment maintenance and repair, work on white goods, heating, air-conditioning and plumbing installations, and bicycle and motorcycle repairs. In principle, the speedE® Industrial can be used on all threaded screw joints.

Two representatives from the company accepted the trophy for their invention, the tool which makes manual screw-driving incredibly easier.
"Not all screw fastenings are the same" or, put another way: "Quality work requires quality tools." It is likely that such a wise truism as this prompted Willi Hahn to found his company 80 years ago. His decision yielded results and has led to 80 years of company history for the hand tool manufacturer Wiha. The company has grown from humble beginnings as a small family firm and into a world-leading manufacturer for professional hand tool solutions with locations around the globe. This year, the long-established company based in the Black Forest is celebrating an important anniversary.

Kick-off, pass, shoot and goal. Wiha is presenting a new line-up which will deliver the right move no matter what type of fastening is involved: the ElectricVario Family, a system comprising of 83 tools which can be fully combined with one another. In addition to many new 'signings', the newly announced Wiha team also includes existing Wiha solutions in different set compilations. Launched under the heading 'Professional football', the extensive campaign bears its own campaign logo, which will make it easy for users to recognise all the different 'team mates' in the future. Users will be guaranteed to get through any 'penalty box' efficiently, flexibly and perfectly safely, with their health intact, sinking every screw with a dead aim.
The Wiha e-screwdriver speedE® has now received its third award this year and has even been honoured with a gold accolade. The German Design Council has given the German Design Award 2019 in Gold to the newly developed product from the hand tool manufacturer from the Black Forest.
