Ralf Putsch and Andreas Montag (Head of the Marketing Department) are very pleased to have won the “Eisen 2012” innovation prize, which was awarded for the first time at the international hardware fair. The two accepted the “Eisen 2012” award during the welcoming party attended by numerous representatives of the industry on the evening of the first day of the fair.
The "TwinForce", a KNIPEX innovation, was chosen from over 100 entrants as one of the three tools for the prize.
"We are delighted to receive this award. Proof that the TwinForce does what it claims to do and was obviously enthusiastically received by the trade public attending the fair was provided at the fair itself: the exhibited pair of award-winning pliers was stolen in spite of the safety chain. The visitor who was so impressed with the TwinForce pliers used the TwinForce itself to cut through the securing chain...," revealed Ralf Putsch.
