Carl Kammerling International Strips Away the Competition

Published:  15 July, 2015

Leading provider of quality hand tools and security solutions, Carl Kammerling International, is celebrating the success of its market leading C.K ArmourSlice following a record-breaking sales period.

Awarded product of the year by professional electricians, the innovative Steel Wired Armoured (SWA) cable stripper has been stripping away the competition since launch last year.

The market-leading product has already delivered impressive margins to retailers, and looks set to become one of the provider’s best sellers, as demand for the product booms.

Designed to speed up the process of preparing SWA cable, the C.K ArmourSlice allows electricians to complete the job up to 50% faster and ensures a perfect cut every time. Typically done utilising a hacksaw and trimming knife, the conventional method for stripping SWA cable is slow, cumbersome and can result in an uneven cut of the wire strands, and even possible damage to the inner conductors.

Graham Godfrey, brand manager for C.K tools, commented: “The C.K ArmourSlice has completely surpassed our expectations. We knew the innovative nature and time saving design of the product would resonate with our core audience of professional electricians, however its overall sales performance has been staggering.

“The success of the product is a real testament to the development work that Carl Kammerling International undertakes in collaboration with its panel of professional tradesmen. Working this way ensures that innovative products are constantly developed to meet the needs of the everyday tradesman.”

Constructed from a rugged and robust metal alloy, and complete with a spare blade holder, the C.K ArmourSlice is priced at £34.99 (exVAT). Additional cutting blades are also available for £5.99 (exVAT) for a pack of 5.
