Wera Tools Wikipedia
Wera Tools is one of the leading global screwdriving tool manufacturers. Its global headquarters and European sales team is based in Wuppertal, Germany. Wera has two wholly owned regional subsidiaries: in the UK (based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England) and North America (based in Ontario, Canada), where it is known as Wera Tools Inc. Outside of these areas, the company operates through a network of sales agents and wholesalers. Wera is a privately held company and employs more than 750 people.
Wera Tools designs and manufactures more than 3,000 tools for both manual and power tool applications at its German headquarters and its factory in the Czech Republic.
Wera products include screwdrivers, screwdriver bits, ratchets and socketry, nut-spinners and L-keys. Wera tools are used principally by professionals, including builders, electricians and mechanics.
Wera is particularly well known for its popular line of screwdrivers featuring the instantly recognisable Kraftform shape handle. This unique design is based around the contours of the hand during screwdriver use, and uses a specifically designed combination of ergonomic soft zones and smooth, hard zones. The distinctive 'crowns' from this handle are now used as part of the Wera logo.

IMPAKTOR screwdriver bit system for cordless impact drivers, utilising TriTorsion and Diamond technology for up to 10x longer life
