I recently contacted Alex Loo of the Richy Group to find out more about the high-quality fishing pliers that his company markets under the Frichy brand name.
According to Alex, the Richy Group Limited is a professional manufacturer and exporter of aluminum fishing pliers in China. They have been an OEM and ODM supplier for over 15 years.
In his words, “The owner of our company is Mr. Jacky Fan. He was a partner in a fishing tackle trade company 15 years ago. He believed that aluminum fishing pliers would be a revolutionary product and have remarkable market potential, so he devoted himself to developing the greatest pliers for anglers.
Through years of research and development, his company, The Richy Group Limited, has become a leading manufacturer of aluminum fishing pliers in mainland China and produces over 50 models, based on type of fishing.
Our pliers are made from aluminum alloy that is heat-treated and cut on a CNC machine to precise tolerances. They have interchangeable multifunctional jaws and tungsten cutters that can be used for a lifetime. This summer, at EFTTEX 2011, our pliers won “Best New Accessory.”
We have been operating under the brand name “Frichy” since 2005. We sell our pliers in the USA, Australia, Europe, Southeast Asia, South Africa and other countries. We have been receiving great feedback from our customers all around the world.
We are also building close relationships with major manufacturers of various fishing tools, such as aluminum fly boxes, fish lip grippers, fishing belts, fish scales and so on. We are dedicated to become a one-stop sourcing station of fishing tools for our customers.”
Alex was also kind enough to ship a pair of Frichy pliers to me from China, along with a catalog. I was immediately impressed with the quality. I’ve included a couple of pics below of the pair that I received, but here is a link to the catalog as well.
If you are interested in purchasing a pair, or if you’d like to become a retailer, please see their web site or contact Alex directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you mention that you saw this on Finfollower you will receive a 10% discount on your order.
Thanks again to Alex. These will make a great addition to my tackle box. Enjoy!
P.S. – prices for these pliers range from $30 – $70.
