Festool GmbH

Written by:

Festool is a large manufacturer of electrical equipment. Their range of products differ from battery powered sanders, to cordless drills and corded/cordless polishers. The company originates from Germany but is active in almost all countries in the world. It can also be found in DIY and hardware stores.

History of Festool

Festool was founded over 90 years ago, around mid 1920. The main goal was to create tools that where developed together with the craftsman that use them. Over the years they have helped to develope the world for craftsman into a business where the tools compliment the craftsmanship of its user. Even today the devices made are designed, tested and developed together with the users and altered to fit the world they are being used in. New innovations are developed to help evolve the craftsman and the tasks they face on a daily basis. Over the years, they have learned from the feedback of its users. For the world of detailing, this means that the polishers created by Festool are finetuned to match the circumstances the detailer will face.

Festool products

Although Festool is mostly known for its polishers in the world of detailing, the company also makes electric saws in many different types, vacuum cleaners, drills and grinders. Many devices are both corded and cordless available, creating a range of products with high versatility. Festool has developed a strong focus on reliability, by developing machines that can last many years with regular maintenance. Festool itself claims that many of their devices can last 30 years or longer. The brand says that this makes it possible for its user to focus on the task ahead with little to no limitations regarding the capability of the machine itself.
