Schonach, December 2015 – Wiha is the first hand tool manufacturer in the world to be awarded the AGR seal of distinction which confirms the effectiveness and benefits of its ergonomic screwdriver handles and their Inomic pliers. The AGR (Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V. – German Campaign for Healthier Backs) gave the tool manufacturer the award of distinction after a series of comprehensive tests carried out by doctors and professional therapists, in which the handle design was meticulously analysed.

"The optimal power transmission of the handle, specifically adapted to the different fastenings, offers comfortable and extremely efficient work for users. Our formula is simple: less force, less pain, but better results and health," emphasises Ronny Lindskog, European Sales and Marketing Manager at Wiha Werkzeuge GmbH.

Alongside the distinguished handle size concept, Wiha's Inomic pliers handle concept also carries the AGR seal of approval. Thanks to ergonomic handling, it also offers users the opportunity to work for longer periods while protecting muscles. For the tool manufacturer, such recognition means proven professionalism in terms of its user orientation and high-quality, innovative developments.
