Knipex Tools announces supplier membership with buying group

Knipex Tools announces that it joined NetPlus Alliance, a buying group for industrial and contractor supply distributors.

Knipex Tools is the largest manufacturer of professional quality pliers in the world, producing up to 65,000 pliers a day. Knipex Tools strives to be the best pliers manufacturer in terms of quality, innovation and efficiency and its pliers satisfy the highest expectation in terms of performance, ergonomics and service life.

“Knipex Tools continues to grow and expand in the industrial market,” said Todd Shumate, vice president of sales. “Joining NetPlus Alliance allows their distributor members to provide the broadest product offering of professional pliers to their customer base. Knipex will be able to provide incremental sales revenue without duplicating or cannibalizing their existing hand tool product category sales.”

Knipex Tools has more than 1,100 different professional pliers available to the NetPlus Alliance distributor member base. These professional pliers are used by a wide variety of customers who use hand tools on a daily basis. With the range of resources that NetPlus Alliance provides, this is a very beneficial relationship for both their distributor members and Knipex Tools.
