Case Study: Hi-Spec Tools™

Taking From Concept to a Multinational Brand Case Study

In the highly-competitive DIY Tools marketplace, Hi-Spec Tools has distinguished itself as a trusted online source for accessible and affordable products. Serving a wide audience, from beginners to experienced DIY enthusiasts, Hi-Spec provides an extensive selection of tool set kits, hand tools, and power tools tailored for a myriad of projects in home improvement, garages, and workshops.

To stay ahead in offering both exceptional quality and value in DIY tools, Hi-Spec turned to Diversitech Global for guidance. This partnership marked the beginning of Hi-Spec's strategic endeavor to affirm its commitment to delivering dependable, budget-friendly DIY tool solutions.

Design Stage


In the crowded landscape of online retail, where mobile browsing is increasingly prevalent, the significance of an impactful brand logo is more crucial than ever.

Hi-Spec's branding journey began with a detailed brief focused on the company's product line goals, leading to a creative process that navigated through font, layout, and color choices. This iterative exploration resulted in the creation of four distinct logos for Hi-Spec and its product lines: DIY Home, Workshop, and Children/Kids.

Tool Design

Hi-Spec's challenge to Diversitech was to design, manufacture and launch two separate lines of hand and power tools: one tailored for the Casual Homeowner seeking value in everyday DIY tasks, and the other designed for the Garage or Workshop Enthusiast, a more knowledgeable user with requirements for serious projects.

To navigate Hi-Spec's unique customization needs, Diversitech's seasoned team of product designers, manufacturing sources and expert purchasers engaged deeply during the design and quotation phases. This approach ensured that all critical manufacturing challenges and opportunities for cost savings were identified and addressed before the development of tools and molds commenced.


The project advanced to the creation of a functional prototype: the development of custom tools, the design and forming of blow-mold cases, and the  assembly of tool assortments and combinations. This careful and collaborative process underscored the commitment to meeting Hi-Spec's specifications for products that would truly resonate with their intended users.

  • Computer-controlled laser cutting to cut parts out of metal, glass, wood, and plastic, as well as engrave designs on them

  • Punching with a die, in only a few fractions of a second, to create holes in a range of shapes in rigid materials

  • Blow moulding in which hot plastic is blasted into a mould cavity provides a quick and efficient solution for all types of tool boxes and cases

  • International accredited standards of Quality Assurance and Quality Control were applied throughout to ensure Hi-Spec would live up to their namesake

  • These include: ISO Certified and 3rd Party Testing Support, QC Testing Protocol Creation, CA Prop 65 Compliance, Inbound and outbound inspections, and multiple supplier evaluations.

Marketing Solutions Stage

After developing and manufacturing Hi-Spec's DIY tools, the next step was launching them in the market, a task for our strategic marketing experts.

We initiated an Omni-channel marketing strategy, focusing first on Hi-Spec's website and brand identity, then expanding to SEO and PPC advertising. Our in-house copywriters produced engaging content across platforms, including e-commerce descriptions, social media posts, and technical guides.

To ensure a striking market presence, our team of graphic designers, photographers, and videographers created captivating visuals, including compliant product images and professional videos, essential for capturing consumer attention quickly.

Through these efforts, we aimed to not just launch Hi-Spec tools but also establish a strong, memorable brand presence in the DIY market.
