Wera is one of the leading global screwdriving tool manufacturers. Its global headquarters and European sales team is based in Wuppertal, Germany. Wera has two wholly owned regional subsidiaries: in the UK (based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England) and North America (based in Ontario, Canada), where it is known as Wera Tools Inc. Outside of these areas, the company operates through a network of sales agents and wholesalers. Wera is a privately held company and employs more than 650 people.
Wera Tools designs and manufactures more than 3,500 tools for both manual and power tool applications at its German headquarters and its factory in the Czech Republic.
Wera fascinates users time and again with quite exceptional product ideas. In practical applications these ideas – with their often unique features – result in a truly professional screwdriving performance.
Wera tools are stylish and ergonomic, and Wera has received several awards for the design of its products. To work with Wera tools is to understand what design really means.
Wera is particularly well known for its popular line of screwdrivers featuring the instantly recognisable Kraftform shape handle. This unique design is based around the contours of the hand during screwdriver use, and uses a specifically designed combination of ergonomic soft zones and smooth, hard zones. The distinctive 'crowns' from this handle are now used as part of the Wera logo.
