Less is more: we concentrate on one single product group and in this way we achieve appreciable benefits in quality and performance.
That is why Knipex is the world's leading brand in pliers today.
People in more than 100 countries work with Knipex pliers – and this figure is on the increase.
The performance, service life and ergonomics of our tools are guided by the need to meet the high expectations of professional users.
That is why we use particularly high-quality materials and modern production technology.
The range of around 1,000 articles offers the optimum selection for the respective purpose - for modern applications too, such as in solar technology, wind energy and aviation.
Our new and further developments constantly ensure improved work results and greater benefits for users.
In this way we make daily work with pliers easier, quicker and safer for the people using them.
Again and again, we successfully create innovations which set standards for the industry.
We produce exclusively in Germany - with ecological and social sustainability.
The entire value-adding work is done by our employees in our Wuppertal factory - from forging the plier blanks to packaging.

We owe our success to our employees, who now number around 1.340.
We set a high value on good working relations and we are interested in being a good employer. Great importance is attached to both basic and further training.
