Taiwan’s Household Equipment, Hardware and Hand Tool Industry
Taiwan's hand tools are the world’s unsung champions! Every year, Taiwan’s tool industry earns US$4 billion from exports of OEM wrenches and pliers. Globally reputed as the “Kingdom of Hand Tools,” Taiwan is one of the world’s top three export countries in this sector, which is one of the island’s most prominent industries. Nearly 70% of enterprises in the hand tool industry are concentrated in the Taichung and Changhua areas.
Ongoing Growth for Two Years Running
According to Taiwan’s Department of Statistics, the number of plants and workers in the hand tool industry is steadily increasing year by year. As of 2017, there were 2,166 factories and about 48,000 workers. The majority of manufacturers are SMEs, and over 70% have fewer than 20 employees. With 70% of the factories centered in Taichung and Changhua, Taiwan’s hand tool industry has a complete upstream, midstream and downstream supply chain.
More than 50% of well-known international mid-range and high-end hand tool brands are purchased from Taiwan.
Taichung’s Golden Valley: The World’s No. 1 Machine Tool Industry Cluster
At the foot of Mt. Dadu in Taichung City is Taiwan’s “Golden Valley” of precision machinery, with over 300,000 employees and an annual output value of NT$900 billion. It is the world’s number one precision machinery cluster in terms of density and per unit area output value, hosting six industries: machine tools and machinery parts, photovoltaic panels, bicycles and parts, woodworking machinery, hand tools, and aerospace.
“Taiwan’s mid-range and high-end hand tool OEM ranks No. 1 in the world.”

of AllProfessional Manufacturing Co., Ltd.
Global Hardware Industry Trends

According to technical research consulting firm TechNavio, the global hand tool market will have reached US$125.5 billion in scale by 2022. Over 50% of this is taken up by the North American and Europe markets, home of the world’s largest hand tool import and export countries, with vibrant DIY cultures.

Germany is an important export expansion market for Taiwan’s hardware hand tools and DIY applications. According to the Taiwan External Trade Development Council’s iTrade platform, Germany is Taiwan’s third largest export market in this sector. In 2017, the output value of Taiwan’s exports to Germany reached US$218 million, an increase of 4.8%, second only to the United States and China. In addition, Germany is also Taiwan’s second largest export market of fasteners. In 2017, fasteners exported to Germany accounted for about 9.5% of the island’s total export value, amounting to nearly US$400 million, or US$2.6 per kilogram, and a 10.5% increase in average unit price compared to the previous year. German products with Taiwanese fasteners have long held leading positions in the global automotive, healthcare, and machinery and equipment manufacturing industries, an indication of Taiwan’s importance in Germany’s fastener market.

Adjustable Concealed Soft Close Hinge provides soft close adjustment by users’ preference. Some user slam closes their cabinet door while others close gently. This built-in soft close feature provides enough buffers to protect the hinge and cabinet from damage caused by slamming. Either on big or small cabinet doors, users can easily fine-tune the soft close to get the most desired smooth closing of their cabinets. The 6 ways adjustment for side, depth, and height allow users to have more adjustment flexibility to offset the cabinet making precision issue. This product passed the test of loading 65lbs and the cycle test of 80,000 times. The certified test report is approved by INTERTERK testing and U.S. Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) standards.
Develop dual-functions product to replace the current double-hung window insufficient airtightness, and ventilation problem on the market. It has simple and symmetrical shape and eliminating extra visual lines. When panels opened, the relative movement of the inner and outer air allows the air to circulate naturally. The product’s performance designs are: to outdoor “air and water tight” and indoor “energy-saving ventilation”. In response to the increasing of global warming, we developed dual-functions product to replace the current double-hung window insufficient airtightness, and ventilation problem on the market. The core value of the product lies in, whether it meets the potential needs of consumers, constantly in-depth exploring, simulate the using situation and propose the demand complete. This product is easy and safe to operate, and does not require complicated instructions. With simple and symmetrical shape, eliminating extra visual lines, and showing the consistency
REPON 77K interlock is made for OA lateral file cabinet and heavy duty storage. First, it enables the drawer to inter-lock to clear the risk of cabinet falling due to multiple drawer-opening. Besides, we include special soft close to silence the drawer close. 77K interlock is a high loading slide, which carries 160# ( 72kgs ). We test the slides with 42” wide drawer, and the function remain great even opening from one side. It exceeds BIFMA 75,000 life span. Increase the safety and convenience as our guideline, we device special soft close to solve the drawback of conventional one, which is cut slide short to place the mechanism. To achieve this, our added-on soft close take no space in slides or drawer. Plus, it's very stable and compatible to installation and production, hence lower the impact to the environment. The slide is easy to install, comes with interlock for safety, and renders great using experience. As a result, users will have a safer and higher quality cabinet.
