We have heard additional word about some of Ideal’s short-term plans for SK Hand Tools. As you may recall, Ideal recently purchased SK Hand Tools after their bankruptcy, and has been working to revitalize the brand.
Our external contact has found out that the new website should be up by next week, and that manufacturing should begin late this month or in November at a temporary facility. Ideal will begin warrantying broken SK tools starting in March 2011, and production at the new facility should begin this February.
Word has it that any SK products made overseas will be brought back to be produced in the USA.
Additional SK-Ideal updates will be listed here. Thank you again to our unnamed contact for his sleuthing efforts!
