OK International is excited to announce the rebranding of OKi products to Metcal. All OKi branded products including soldering/ de-soldering, hand-held convection tools and equipment, fume extraction and fluid dispensing will now be unified globally under the Metcal brand name. This rebranding will make the Metcal product line accessible to a wider audience by carrying forward the value proposition created by the OKi brand. Metcal, the brand you turn to for your Electronics Bench Tool Solutions.
We anticipate to have all OKi products rebranded to Metcal by the end of September, 2013. This rebrand is being handled as a rolling change, meaning that we will start manufacturing Metcal branded products per the schedule below, but the OKi branded products in our warehouses as well as our distributors warehouses will cycle through the system until depleted.
For most of the products, it is simply a logo change, the product will remain functionally the same, with the same performance and warranty as was previously on the OKi branded version. There will be a few cosmetic changes as described below.
Following is a breakdown of when the Metcal version will begin to be produced:
