With its introduction in 1996, the Swiss+Tech Micro-Tech 6-in-1 represented a quantum leap in the art of tool making. This compact, easily transportable tool combined genuine Swiss craftsmanship with American innovation to create a new category of patented consumer products -- Key Ring Tools that are with you when you need them. The success of the Micro-Tech and its patented quick-release mechanism resulted in the expansion of the product line to a variety of similar tools: Micro-Plus, Micro-Plus EX 9-in-1 and Micro-Max 19-in-1. Using another ingenious, patented locking system, the company introduced the lightest and most compact tool ever developed, the Utili-Key 6-In-1 that makes minor repairs, assemblies, installations, and hundreds of jobs an easy undertaking. Made to look like a standard key, this tool attaches quickly to a key ring and is an international best seller. Swiss+Tech continues its tradition of new product development with the support of Interdesign Inc., its parent company since 2009. New product categories such as technology accessories and larger hand tools are meeting the needs of a wider variety of customers and expanding distribution channels.
