Introducing the Grip-Rite RED System

IRVING, Texas–PrimeSource Building Products, an international distributor of building materials for residential and commercial construction, is launching a line of pneumatic tools, compressors, and accessories under its Grip-Rite brand. The RED System includes pneumatic tools designed for most fastening applications including framing, siding, and fencing, as well as finish and trim carpentry, complemented by compressors, accessories and most importantly, genuine Grip-Rite collated fasteners.

“When developing The Grip-Rite RED System, the needs of professional contractors were absolutely top of mind. We knew the system had to be reliable, efficient and durable, so contractors could quickly get the job done right and be confident these tools, compressors, fasteners and accessories would stand up to the rigors of repeated jobsite work,” said Drew Sundholm, Director of Collated Fastening.

“We believe so strongly we will exceed the expectations of our end-users with this optimized system, we put those development objectives right in the name – The Grip-Rite RED System,” added Allyson Horst, Senior Director of Marketing.

In fact, Grip-Rite is taking their pneumatic program one step further with The RED Promise, an industry-leading comprehensive service package that includes a 7 year warranty and 90 day satisfaction guarantee on tools (including soft parts and driver blades) as well as a network of nearly 700 service locations across the country. “It’s a commitment to making our guarantees every bit as good as our products,” said Sundholm. “The Grip-Rite brand is already highly-regarded and well-known for our exclusive Collated Jam-Free Guarantee, so we’re proud to extend it under the Grip-Rite RED Promise, which also includes a 1 year limited warranty and 30 day satisfaction guarantee for compressors.”

Reliable, efficient and durable, The Grip-Rite RED System delivers jobsite fastening solutions to meet the rigorous demands of jobsites across the country with a host of professional grade features, but without the professional grade price tag.
