Mirka has announced its power tools division will be celebrating its 10th birthday in October 2020.
The last decade has seen the team create products such as the DEROS sanders, which have become two of Mirka’s best selling products.
The division, founded after the success of the CEROS in 2009, highlighted to Mirka that a dedicated power tools division was required to help anticipate and fast track the development process of future products.
Caj Nordström, Product Development Manager at Mirka, said: “Developing new products and working with new technology has always been my passion. Mirka is well known for manufacturing abrasives, but abrasives are only a part of the complete picture when it comes to sanding. They are best matched with tools that have been designed for them to give the best possible result, and as our engineers are not just theoretical people, we like to use the products ourselves.”
The power tools division has won awards for its products over the past decade, with Caj adding: “Winning our first award told us we had gotten the design right. But the most important feedback of course comes from end users, who work with our power tools every day. The tool must be perfect for the user.”
