The Unior hand tools programme has been officially approved as a European manufacturer of hand tools

Unior has been committed to quality and innovation since its inception, and we have recently reached a new milestone on our path. The Unior hand tools programme has received the European Quality Trademark (EQTM), which is the first certificate of its kind to certify the quality of European trademarks.

Nowadays, many manufacturers like to boast that their products are European, but the origin of the material from which the products are made is often questionable. For this reason, the European Organization for Quality (EOQ) has introduced an innovation, namely a certificate that verifies the quality of European trademarks (called EQTM). This certificate can only be obtained for products of European origin, and the acquisition process is professionally managed and supervised by the Commission.

The certificate is intended for European manufacturers, which guarantees that their products are of excellent quality and that more than 60% of the product material and services is of European origin, thus adding value to these products. Recently, this certificate has also been awarded to Unior for its hand tools programme, as 86% of the basic and auxiliary raw materials, as well as the production of finished products, originates from Europe. The advantage of this is that Unior can trace the entire supply chain and environmental protection, which is also based on lowering the carbon footprint. The newly obtained certificate provides the Unior hand tools programme with visibility in the 120 markets in which it is present and places it alongside other strong brands. Many of Unior competitors' products are imported, so it is important that Unior is a true European manufacturer that also takes care of the local environment, as well as the development and health of employees. It is also important that customers and users themselves can recognise products of a high and lasting quality with the help of the certificate.
