With steadfast dedication to the construction industry that stretches back nearly 100 years, Milwaukee Tools have been leading the way with their unique and revolutionary solutions to the most common trade problems.
One thing you want from any drylining or plastering tool is performance – and that is where the philosophy of Milwaukee Tools has delivered time and time again. The ‘disruptive innovation’ ingrained into this brand has helped it to repeatedly create tools that deliver unrivalled reliability and offer a new level of productivity for their users.
As proud stockists of Milwaukee Tools here at Gypsumtools, we are delighted to offer our customers access to one of the most trusted industry-leading brands on the current market. With a wide range of power tools, accessories and hand tools to choose from, there is something for almost every trade profession.
The tools that Milwaukee bring to the table are often trade-specific and provide a unique solution to common on-site issues – whether it be through their Lithium-ion technology used in their M12, M18 and M28 drill systems or their Shockwave Impact Duty driver bits which have been engineered to be the most reliable, best fit driver bits in the world. There are no boundaries with this brand – they will take on and overcome almost any challenge the drylining world can throw at them.
So how do they manage to do this so consistently? The key is working alongside professional tradesmen all over the world, allowing Milwaukee to understand the ever-changing demands of the construction industry and design their products accordingly. Their aim is always to help professionals work faster and smarter, not ignoring the small details that can make a world of difference. It’s this level of ‘disruptive innovation’ that continues to deliver exceptional new products time and time again.
Throughout their history, Milwaukee have been responsible for some of the biggest breakthroughs in power tool design:
1924 – the ‘Hole-Shooter’ was the first lightweight, portable one-handed drill
1949 – Milwaukee developed the first right-angle drill
1951 – the Sawzall Reciprocating Saw, the first self-contained portable electric hacksaw
1979 – the first U.S-made annular grinder
2005 – Milwaukee becomes the first power tool manufacturer to use lithium-ion technology
2008 – the first manufacturer to use Ice Hardened strengthening technology
This isn’t even the full list of company achievements, but as you can see, it does go some way to demonstrating the incredible and unrelenting desire Milwaukee have to develop and design tools that really do help the end user. While some manufacturers out there have shifted their focus to the mass markets in recent times, Milwaukee have continued to remain focused purely on the core user group.
It’s not just the manufacturing process that they invest in either. Milwaukee Tools also benefit from established partnerships with some of the top universities around the world which plays a key role in their recruitment process, allowing them to fast-track the very best young talent in engineering, marketing and sales.
Combining this with heavy investment in the next line of products, Milwaukee can constantly look to the future safe in the knowledge that their tools stand at the forefront of the plastering and drylining marketplace. As a brand, they pride themselves on being defined by unprecedented speed, agility, innovation and most importantly, quality.
Making the workplace a safer and more productive environment, forms the cornerstone of Milwaukee Tools mission – something that we echo here at Gypsumtools.
