Established in « Ile de France » (suburb of Paris) and in the South-East of France, EDMA has the will to manufacture in France a growing number of products and to register its activity in a global approach of sustainable development. EDMA tools are designed in a permanent search for innovation and quality to provide real solutions to the needs of constructors in their daily work, all over the world. They are also designed to save time and effort for their users.

A RANGE OF PROFESSIONAL
TOOLS SINCE 1937

The first nibbler, was created by engineer Pierre Gréhal in 1950. It has been joined over the years, in the EDMA catalog, by many other tools intended for building constructors and craftsmen.

Today, the EDMA offer includes over 900 hand tools.

They are dedicated to drywallers, painters, tilers, floor installers, roofers, facade installers, masons, landscapers.

The hand tools offered for these different professions specifically meet the needs of the constructor in the different phases of his work sites.

FRENCH MANUFACTURING AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
FOR EDMA TOOLS

FRENCH HAND TOOLS

EDMA currently devotes a 4200 m² area based in Ile de France (suburb of Paris) to the manufacturing of a large number of tools.
EDMA's objective is to eventually deploy the necessary resources so as to further increase this number of tools totally manufactured in France.

EDMA has moreover joined a few months ago, the French Fab’s brand which embodies a French industry, innovative, exporting and open to evolutions.

RESPONSIBLE TOOLING

This will of EDMA is also part of a global sustainable development approach to limit and reduce the carbon footprint of its production.

With this same goal in mind, the packaging of many products has been redesigned to significantly reduce the use of plastic in favor of recyclable cardboard.

Many EDMA tools have one or more parts that can be replaced. This gives users the opportunity to make their EDMA tools last longer and to reduce waste production. This offer of all EDMA spare parts is permanently available in the online store on the EDMA website.

INNOVATION AND QUALITY FOR USEFUL AND EFFICIENT TOOLS

The search for innovation is at the heart of tool manufacturing at EDMA. Indeed, the R&D department registers more than 8 patents per year. They are the result of rigorous work on the materials and technologies that integrate the tools.

EDMA also cultivates a close relationship with the users of its products. This allows EDMA to gather their needs and feedback to feed the design of ever more efficient tools.

This proximity also makes EDMA involved to develop tools that are real "time and effort saving" solutions for constructors, sometimes working alone on a site and with increasingly busy days.

Quality is of course present at each stage of the design and manufacturing of EDMA tools. These tools have various certifications testifying a permanent concern in this field:

- NF - EN ISO 2001 (quality management systems)
- NF - EN ISO 14001 (environmental management systems for the area of activity where EDMA's head office is located)

- Membership in the eco-organization ECOLOGIC in charge of the collection and treatment of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

EDMA has for a long time adopted a socially and societally responsible attitude, constantly taking into account the social, societal, economic and environmental dimensions of its activity with its employees, customers and partners.

Its commitment to these issues is reflected in particular by :

Its participation to the United Nations Global Compact
As such, EDMA subscribes to the integration and promotion of 10 principles relating to
Respect for human rights
Respect for international labor standards
Protection of the environment
The fight against corruption

Constantly seeking to improve its CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) performance by undergoing regular evaluation by an independant assessor.

TOOLS EXPORTED
ALL OVER THE WORLD

EDMA is very present in many tool stores in France but also has a strong export culture. Moreover, in 2020, it obtained the "Authorized Economic Operator" (AEO) approval which allows it to facilitate and secure its exchanges at the international customs level.

EDMA's products are recognized by users on all five continents and EDMA's tools are shipped to no less than 70 countries on a daily basis.

EDMA sales and logistics departments are fully able and organized to respond to all requests in different languages.

EDMA's tools respond to a wide range of problems faced by building constructors. And first of all, they answer the most fundamental ones: which tool to choose? Which tools for tiling? Which tools for the drywaller ?... etc. Or simply how to store your tools...
EDMA has solutions and answers to bring on all these topics.
