Footprint still going strong

Published: 24 March 2010
When Footprint Tools fell foul of both the recession and the banking crisis last year, after major investment in a relocation, the company took the decision to enter into a solvent liquidation. Many customers feared the Footprint wrench would disappear.

However, responding to demand, the owners recommenced manufacturing operations under the name Footprint Sheffield from their premises in Hillsborough, Sheffield.

Consequently this tool is still available together with the thumbturn variant, each in three sizes - 7 inches, 9 inches and 12 inches.

The original wrench was invented by the founder of Footprint 125 years ago and has remained largely unchanged ever since.
