KNIPEX is worldwide known as a family-owned manufacturer of pliers, diagonal cutters and insulated tools for both industry and professional users.

The successful path of the company started in 1882, as KNIPEX was able to reach and maintain a position as a worldwide leading manufacturer in the field of pliers by embracing their traditions and openness to new markets.
What makes their products special is, first of all, the attention to the material used to manufacture them. Other than that, KNIPEX is well-known for its modern processing methods and machines, used to produce tools that achieve high precision and efficiency. KNIPEX’s success proves that putting quality first is fundamental and its strongest commitment is delivering the best quality and good value for money both now and in the future and being well aware of their responsibility towards the natural environment.

Moreover, to ensure that KNIPEX’s high quality standards can be maintained, the complete production - from forging to packaging - is solely based in Wuppertal, Germany. KNIPEX is not only a brand designating a specific origin but a philosophy of quality, performance and constant improvement. That is why professionals in numerous industries from automotive to electrical and plumbing swear by the quality of KNIPEX "Quality Made in Germany".

KNIPEX: the leading brand in the production of Pliers

As pliers specialist, KNIPEX offers top performance and set standards in global competition. In over 135 years, the brand has developed an extensive know-how of pliers and manufacturing, which can be found in each of the more than 1000 KNIPEX products - the widest range of all pliers manufacturers!
The company’s fundamental principle has stayed in place: remain faithful to a product group: pliers. Having put all its effort in achieving performance and quality in a single segment has made KNIPEX one of the leading brands in the field of pliers. 

With its choice of around 1,000 types of pliers, cable connectors and crimping pliers. Knipex’s commitment is to provide exactly the right tool for every application, always in a suitable design and size. That’s why its products are always customizable, and they are available in different sizes and shapes; an example is the KNIPEX Precision Electronics Diagonal Cutters product line: they are light-weighted precision cutters for ultra-fine cutting work thanks to its sharp and induction hardened cutting edges and small bevels.

The precision of pliers is essential for their function: without accuracy there can be no reliable cutting, gripping and shaping, and also no zero backlash: KNIPEX ensures compliance through strict measurements and diverse inspections.
With the professional users in mind KNIPEX seeks to find innovative solutions that enable the users to get their work done easier, faster, and very importantly, safer. Continuous feedback from professionals and great efforts in research and development have led KNIPEX to achieve and maintain this excellence in quality throughout the whole product range. This is all made in order to create a reliable image and a long-term, collaborative business relationship with its customers.

KNIPEX Vision and Innovations: CoBolt®, Cobra® and TubiX®

The course for the future of KNIPEX is leading in a clear direction: expanding its market presence with problem-solving and innovation. Its continuous work on new products and product advantages offers users tangible added value. For example, by saving handforce when cutting or adjust pliers for gripping quicker and with more precision. Or they can do without a heavy tool because a more compact one can do the same job.
New models are then put through the acid test with the help of computer simulations in the test lab and in user testing. The results are then used to further optimise the product, it is re-tested and finally released for production.

One of KNIPEX' main focal points is that the user should always be able to rely on its tools in every respect. The professionals` opinion is the benchmark. Therefore, KNIPEX is constantly searching for discussions with users on how they work with the pliers and what is important for them. On the basis of these dialogues several new innovations and product improvements have been generated such as the Circlip Pliers, the Pliers Wrench XL and an improved version of the Crimping Pliers for wire end sleeves.
KNIPEX products distinguish themselves from other pliers for the high-quality, precision and the exceptional cutting performance. Some examples are the self-locking water pump pliers KNIPEX Cobra®, available in different models and sizes, or the compact bolt cutter KNIPEX CoBolt® and CoBolt® XL, which ensures 60% less effort in use compared to high leverage diagonal cutters of the same size and successful cutting of large cross-sections as well as very hard materials.

The development department at KNIPEX is always researching intensively on further improvements to existing tools, and on completely new products that push the boundaries of technical possibilities. A prime example of such innovations is the KNIPEX TubiX®, the pipe cutter with the unique one-hand quick adjustment "QuickLock": It cuts stainless steel pipes faster and easier than ever previously possible.
