“The Pressing Machines represent just the first of what will become a comprehensive line of reliable, efficient, world-class industrial plumbing and pipe trades products to meet the market needs,” stated Stanley VIRAX Product ManagerAlan Englishin the announcement.

France-based Stanley VIRAX has been in business since 1920, with a distribution network that spans more than 70 countries. The brand was part of the Facom group of tools, which was purchased by Stanley in 2006.
