one priority : innovation

From its earliest days, SPIT has had one mission : to invent distinctive products to improve the comfort and day-to-day life of building professionals...
SPIT has met this commitment every day through technology, design and service since the invention in 1951 of the first fixing tool to use the power of powder for effortless fixing, to the creation in 1993 of the first gas-actuated nailer, which will remain exclusive to SPIT for more than 10 years. 
Today, our third-generation nailers give our customers a leading edge. SPIT’s tools have never failed to revolutionize the building market, giving users greater autonomy, speed, comfort and precision.
