Taiwanese hardware innovations take technology to the next level

Taiwan's hand tools are the unsung champions of the industry, since worldwide more than 5% of well-known international mid-range and high-end hand tool brands come from Taiwan. In 2019, its hand tool industry export value surpassed US$3.79 billion, making Taiwan one of the top three exporters in the world.

Against the back of this, six Taiwan Excellence awarded winners demonstrated their products during the “Taiwan Excellence Hardware Showcase” recently. The event was organised by the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT), MOEA, Taiwan, R.O.C., and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA).

Departing from the norm, the emcee brought the audience on a live tour of the “Taiwan Hardware Show” exhibition hall, allowing the six companies to give hands-on demonstrations of their products, namely:
