Klein Tools rises to the top in Tools of the Trade 2014 US survey

Klein Tools, sold in the UK through City Electrical Factors Ltd, has been named as a preferred brand in a US Tools of the Trade 2014 survey of 731 tradesmen. Out of six common tools, Klein was the preferred brand for two – screwdrivers and lineman’s pliers.

The survey focused on six tools including two types of measuring tapes, screwdrivers, wrenches, lineman’s pliers and pump pliers.

For screwdrivers, Klein took first place with 32% of the vote while competing against 22 manufacturers. When the survey was divided up by trade, three out of four electricians preferred Klein screwdrivers.

For lineman’s pliers, Klein took over half of the vote at 51% – over 2.5 times more than the runner up – while competing against 19 manufacturers. When the survey reflected only electricians’ opinions, almost 76% chose Klein.

“Klein Tools has been using the highest quality materials and superior workmanship for over 150 years,” said Greg Palese, Vice President of Marketing at Klein Tools. “This award acknowledges our hard work and dedication to making the best professional tools for tradespeople.”
