Our story

Precision that fascinates

The use of Electronics in almost every industrial and scientific area created new challenges for us in order to meet the growing demand for small, functional and economical tools..


I LOVE the tiny size of the ends of the plier noses. They arrived very quickly and are perfect for my jewelry making and repair work. Love them! Love them!

I want to tell you how much I like your products. I now have 8 or 9 of your pliers and cutters.  The workmanship and general quality is superb, definitely better than other brands costing just as much.  I only found about your products recently and will certainly be ordering more.
