Home Depot will phase out Hilti departments

Tool maker and distributor Hilti will end its in-store relationship with The Home Depot, according to an article in the Tulsa (Okla.) World.

The store-within-a-store Hilti departments had been a fixture at Home Depot for about 13 years.

The Tulsa World quoted a Hilti director of communications, and reported that the Hilti ProShops will be removed over the course of the next 180 days as part of a mutual decision between the two companies.   

The world’s largest home improvement retailer will continue to sell Hilti products online. They will also be available for custom-order at the stores’ pro desks and for rental at rental desks.

Hilti headquarters are in Tulsa.
