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.

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.

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.
