Airboss sweeps global design awards with pneumatic tools in 2011.

Taipei, Jan. 10, 2012 (CENS)--Concentrated on R&D, the Taiwan-based Airboss Air Tool Co., Ltd., a world-caliber supplier of pneumatic tools, swept global design awards in 2011, further boosting its profile in the line.

For Airboss, 2011 was undoubtedly a good year to Airboss, as the company netted the Gold Metal & Special Award in 2011 INPEX (The Invention New Product Exposition) innovation trade fair held in Pittsburgh, the U.S., and Silver Medal Award in 2011 IENA--International Trade Fair Ideas Inventions New Products--of Germany. In the same year, the company was also honored to the gold metal and special award of SIIF (Seoul International Invention Fair) of Korea.

The company indicated that consummate manufacturing and R&D capability are among its competitive advantages contributing to these given honors. Knowing that product quality is highly related to manufacturing maturity, the company has built a sound line of advanced machinery, including CNC (computer numerically controlled) machining centers, milling machines and punching machines, in house, and skillfully applied state-of-the-art technologies, such as vacuum casting, in production. The company stressed that most of its machinery is imported from Japan and globally certificated.

In R&D, the company pours 15% of its annual turnover into product developments, and insists that each air tool has to be developed in line with the trends for lightweight, ergonomically designed tools with eco-friendly features. The company noted that its engineers are required to take recyclability and carbon reductions in manufacturing into account when carrying out R&D, so as to build distinct impressions into its products. Commonly seen in the company's air tools, the design philosophy has proven effective to boost the company's achievements in the line. So far, the company has obtained multinational patents in Germany, Japan, the U.S., China and Taiwan.

The company's product category covers a variety of air drills, air impact wrenches, air die grinders, air screw driver and air tools in general, all of which are sold under its own brand Airboss, and orderable on an OEM (original equipment manufacturing) or ODM (original design manufacturing) basis.

In the face of an increasingly uncertain global economy, Airboss, however, opines that its business outlook in 2012 will remain promising, mainly because Taiwan has been globally regarded as one of the world's most reliable manufacturing bases of air tools, not to mention that the company has built a trustworthy name among professional buyers after years of hard work.
