About Us

NO ORDINARY PLIER MAKER. SINCE 1944.

Welcome to Maun. We have been making pliers since 1944. But not ordinary pliers. We make pliers with a unique feature - the jaws always move in parallel.

Parallel Is Better

Our parallel pliers are better than conventional pliers that have a scissor action.

  • They grip better, especially nuts and bolts.
  • They make straightening wire easy.
  • You need less handle force for equal jaw pressure.

We Solve Problems

We develop pliers like nobody else. Designing and engineering them to do things that others simply don’t know how to. We offer a collection of specialist pliers, each designed to do a particular job. To do it right, first time, no compromise.

We are restless at Maun, always looking for a new problem to solve. Sometimes, our solution is not a plier. Our range includes a number of other tools, each perfect for its task. We also develop bespoke tools for corporate customers.

The Specialist Plier Specialists

The beating heart of our business is our factory in Nottinghamshire, near Sherwood Forest. Here, we have a skilled team of engineers, machinists and assemblers. The longest serving joined Maun before Neil Armstrong landed on the Moon. On average they have 25 years’ plier-making experience.

Every day, they transform high grade steels into innovative, problem-solving pliers. Pliers that are trusted to do the job, precision-made, durable, yet affordable.

WE ARE THE SPECIALIST PLIER SPECIALISTS. THAT'S WHY WE ARE NO ORDINARY PLIER MAKER. AND HAVE BEEN SINCE 1944.
