Southwire electrician's tools

Southwire has introduced Southwire Electrician’s Tools, a comprehensive line of hand tools, testers and meters.

Southwire Electrician's ToolsThe tools are manufactured with top-quality materials to ensure superior performance and durability throughout the life cycle of the tool, the company said. They include added features to help enhance user productivity and are backed by strong warranties.

The suite of tool products is an extension of Southwire’s Maxis Contractor Equipment line, which Southwire acquired in 2009. The new unit will be led by Brandon Moss, who was recently named vice president of Southwire’s Tools & Accessories. Moss helped spearhead the rigorous product research and testing Southwire conducted while developing the new tools.

“As a leader in the wire and cable industry, we know contractors and understand the wants and needs they face daily on the jobsite,” Moss said. “Adding Electrician’s Tools completes the product portfolio. We now offer solutions on both ends of the spectrum, from contractor equipment to electrician’s tools and a whole range of other categories in between.”

Southwire’s Electrician’s Tools will be available in retail outlets and electrical wholesale and tools supply houses nationwide, allowing wide availability for professional contractors. The collection consists of a full line of professional grade hand tools that includes pliers, strippers, and screw drivers, as well as a wide array of electrical meters and testers.

The Electrician’s Tools line marks the latest innovation for Southwire, long known as a company with a powerful brand in the wire and cable industry and for “real change” that empowers electrical contractors and installers, the company said in a press release.
