Starting on Jan. 1, Leatherman Tools will be represented in Switzerland by Merz, which is replacing Led Lenser Swiss. Merz distributes other important brands in the Swiss market including Merrell, Saucony and Nikwax. The change of distribution follows the establishment of Leatherman Europe in Germany 12 months ago. Until February, a German company, Ledlenser, had been handling Leatherman's distribution in Switzerland as well as in Germany, Austria and Italy.
