This 2014, Leatherman Tool Group, Inc. formally launches its products here in the country.
Officially distributed by Willi Hahn Enterprises (WHE/Hahn), Leatherman is the original American multi-tool. Mr. Willi Hahn of WHE/Hahn, retailer of high quality sporting goods, says that they have recognized the potential in this product and sees the growing market in such tools.
“For Filipino who are always on the go, ease of access to everything is quite important. So, having a handy dandy tool which fits in the pocket will definitely answer the growing need for products like these on the market.” Says Hahn.
A three day launch was held at the Nido Fortified Science Discovery Center at the SM Mall of Asia with no-less than Tim Leatherman, creator of this legendary tool.
Focused during the launch are the Leatherman Leap and the Leatherman Juice. Both products appeal to the younger generations as the Juice is available in a variety of colors and can be hooked to a backpack while the Leap has tools for a variety of needs as a ruler and a bottle cap opener.
Featured also are Super tool 300, Wave, Charge TTi and the Wingman. All tools are available for purchase and are geared towards the more general users of tools. They all sport a very industrial feel and have that gleam of quality. All four tools are great for general mechanical tasks to possible first aid needs all the way to basic outdoor treks.
Leatherman carved its name with its multi-tools, knives and pocket tools, enabling clients to have them ready at arm’s reach for everyday quick fixes. Leatherman also pioneered in integrating pliers into multi-tools.
The Leatherman Tool Group all began when founder, Tim Leatherman realized the need for pliers to be paired with his good old trust Boy Scout-type knife. Pushing himself to develop this idea into something useful with the help of his college friend, Steve Berliner, the idea became reality. Soon, they sold their first ever Pocket Survival Tool (PST) in 1983. From thereon, the Leatherman Tool Group has provided products that are filled with Tim’s ingenuity, innovation and quality to different corners of the world.
Leatherman are available in any of the ten branches of Hahn in the Metro, Pampanga and Cebu.
