Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation has created a new business unit dedicated to launching productivity and enhancing solutions in the Test and Measurement category. New products will launch in July, strategically targeting Milwaukee's core end-users with a focus on Electricians and HVAC/R Technicians.
The first wave of the new Test and Measurement line includes innovative alkaline products, and applies Milwaukee's industry leading LITHIUM-ION technology to deliver additional tools on the growing M12 cordless platform. Furthermore, Milwaukee® will continue to develop this category as they move forward in their corporate commitment to become a leader in the Test and Measurement category.
"With a strong user base in electrical, HVAC/R, MRO and remodeling, there is an opportunity for Milwaukee to deliver overdue change to an under-served, dormant category,” says Steven Richman, President of Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. "We are dedicated to lead the industry by delivering new products with disruptive innovation, best-in-class performance, and solutions to enhance end-user productivity."
Products in the line that are based on disposable alkaline batteries include the Voltage Detector with Work Light, Fork Meters, Laser Temp-Gun™ Thermometer, Digital Multimeter, and Clamp Meters. Rechargeable M12 cordless products in the line include the Sub-Scanner™ Detection Tool, Laser Temp-Gun™ Thermometers, and Clamp-Gun™ Clamp Meters. Many of the units come in two separate models with distinct feature sets specifically tailored to the needs of the Electrician and HVAC/R Technician.
With the introduction of the Test & Measurement line, Milwaukee® plans to become the new standard of excellence in this category. With a commitment to developing trade-specific tools, Milwaukee® will continue to build this platform to offer industry leading performance, safety and ergonomics.
