Microsoft Dynamics AX the Choice for Multi-Tool Manufacturer Leatherman Tool Group

Leatherman Charge TTI

You've seen Leatherman multi-tools. They are those rugged, foldable tools with everything (depending which model you buy) from a full-sized plier to a bottle opener, knife, an emergency whistle, and a ferro rod for building a fire.

The company's rugged name is not clever marketing; Leatherman Tool Group was co-founded in 1983 by Tim Leatherman. After graduating from a Oregon State University with a degree in mechanical engineering, he traveled through Europe in what he calls an untrustworthy $300 Fiat. He used his Boy Scout knife often for minor repairs but remarked, "I kept wishing I had a pair of pliers!" and designed a multi-tool with just the capabilities he needed.
