Ridgid PH highlights latest product line, all geared with app-based tech for today’s digital age

November 16, 2017

Since its founding in the US in 1923, Ridgid has created a name for itself as the global leader in manufacturing industrial tools related to piping, plumbing, and underground work. In fact, it made its mark in modern history as the company that optimized the design of the pipe wrench for maximum durability and ease of use.

Turning the page in history almost a century later, the American company, which has entered the Philippine market since the ‘60s, is still going strong, adapting to today’s digital age with its new line of tools and equipment. In a nutshell, Ridgid’s new line of equipment revolves around the phrase, “Find it, See it, Solve it” to fix problems concerning plumbing, piping, and other related issues.

And, it all involves the use of the company’s 2 prominent apps that are now downloadable for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for iOS and Android devices, respectively. These are the Ridgid View and HQx Live. These 2 apps essentially serve as a kind of digital controller that operate Ridgid’s latest products. These utilize an internet connection, GPS, and the mobile device’ cameras in order to find, assess, and solve problems that would otherwise be tedious using full-on manual labor.
