Pliers manufacturer since 1882

Knipex is a family-owned business led by its owners and founded by C. Gustav Putsch. The fourth generation is now at the helm. While Knipex was only officially registered as a brand name in 1942, the company has been making pliers since 1882. In the early years, Knipex was a forge that primarily produced pliers for blacksmiths. Today, this brand of pliers is a major player on the global stage. Eight hundred employees produce about 45,000 pliers daily — sold in more than 100 countries worldwide.
