Nagaur hand tools cluster (Rajasthan)
Jalandhar hosts one of the prominent hand tools clusters in the country. There are around 950 units in the cluster, of which about 900 are micro and small scale units and 50 are medium scale units. Most of the units manufacture an array of hand tools like spanners, screw driver, pliers, bench vices, tyre levers and hammers and so on. A medium scale unit produces around 50–70 tonnes of material per month. The production of the unit depends upon the number of hammers installed in the unit. A substantial quantity of the hand tools production is exported to countries like USA, UK, Germany, Italy, Australia and Russia. The cluster provides direct employment to about 60,000 people.
