TrigJig digital mitre tools now stocked with major UK hardware retailer
Precision hand tools manufacturer, HICI Ltd, are excited to announce the launch of their flagship hand tools range with UK hardware retailer Screwfix. Following a successful pitch at the Screwfix Innovation Day in 2015, TrigJig® secured the opportunity to launch online with Screwfix in 2016.
TrigJig for coving and skirting are two new and ingenious digital mitre tools, created with both tradespeople and DIYers in mind. A world first, they are designed to make the job in hand more efficient and until now, there hasn’t been a simple way to measure, calculate and cut coving and skirting for angles that aren’t perfectly 90°.
HICI founder and creator of TrigJig, Dan Soanes-Brown, commented, “It was fantastic and a real confidence boost for our team, that Screwfix saw the potential for the tools and showed us support in the early stages”.
After a successful crowdfunding campaign which raised £125,000 for manufacturing and many months of hard work getting everything ready for a retail launch in May, Dan added, “Following a strong online marketing push pre-launch to raise awareness with the end user, we saw unexpected demand in the first week of trading, particularly from international markets. So, it’s exciting to see them finally online with Screwfix to be able to reach a national UK audience”.
Now available in many countries across Europe as well as USA and Australia; HICI are keen to build on this milestone and see TrigJig available from more major hardware stores and independent retailers worldwide.
