The year was 1864. Abraham Lincoln was president, Nevada was admitted as the 36th state and Wall Lenk Corporation was founded in Pittsburg, PA. This year Wall Lenk celebrates 150 years as a leading manufacturer and supplier of USA made soldering tools.
Today Wall Lenk Corporation continues the tradition of Made in the USA. In fact,
80% of Wall Lenk’s products are still proudly manufactured by American workers in Kinston, NC. “In the past, craftsmen would use our tools to proudly brand their names on wooden furniture frames to mark the pieces they had made,” says Paul Ricciarelli, the 5th President of Wall Lenk. “Today our products are sold for all types of uses and can be found in many different channels of distribution.
This year, the company’s products line will be joined by an exceptionally hot new entry called the mini Torch. What makes it hot is the price point. For the first time, consumers will be able to own a fashionable, refillable butane torch for under $20.
The attractive display features five colors including Tangerine, Blueberry, Strawberry, Kiwi and Pineapple. The mini Torch uses a Piezo-ignition system and the jet-blue flame that Wall Lenk Butane products are known for. See them at the 2014 Housewares Show and celebrate Wall Lenk’s 150th anniversary at booth S148.
