Press Release | Wiha Tools USA
MONTICELLO, MN – October 1, 2019
Willi Hahn Corporation USA dba Wiha Tools announces the North American launch of its Electric Vehicle E-Mobility program at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada from November 5 to 8, 2019. The program will be available to be seen at Booth 41305 in the Lower South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
In addition to the comprehensive line of hand tools Wiha manufactures, Wiha is one of the largest manufacturers of insulated tools in the world. The rise in Electric Vehicle demand has created an opportunity for Wiha to service the need for high quality, safe insulated tools for the Automotive Industry. Wiha insulated products are suitable for work in environments exposed up to 1,000 V AC. The VDE certified products are individually tested at 10,000 V AC.
“We are excited to show the Automotive Industry what we have to offer. For 25 years Wiha has been focused on industrial and contractor segments in North America. Given the broad selection of high quality products we offer, it only makes sense for Wiha to extend our reach to the Automotive segment where we can fill the demand of insulated tools that most Automotive brands have not entered,” Said Patrick DiPerno, Divisional President and Managing Director for Wiha Americas.
Stop by booth 41305 to see Wiha’s E-Mobility program, the world’s first insulated battery-powered screwdriver (speedE), the ElectricVario program, SlimLine Tools, and a host of other Wiha unique items at the SEMA Show 2019.
