Ford Tools will soon be expanding its product range with the launch of new rechargeable lines namely F-12 and F-18.
“The Lithium-Ion battery platform is state-of-the-art and allows customers use any tools with the same battery. This helps save time and money. We will launch the new range before the end of the year,” said Soranyanejad.

We will continue to seek strategic partnerships in the region with companies that are experts in sales and distribution of similar products and are committed to providing quality after sales service and support.”
