Festool's commitment to dust extraction.
Most manufacturers give little, if any, though to a tool's ability to remove dust.
To the contrary, Festool's design principles require that dust extraction be a primary
consideration being a tool is being designed and developed. Dust removal is not
an afterthought, it's a priority. The only way to achievement the highest level
of dust extraction efficiency is to design a tool, a hose and a dust extrator that
work in tandem to maximize particle and chip collection. Using this design process,
Festool is able to achieve the best dust extraction efficiency in the industry.
A history of quality and innovation.
"Each employee is dedicated to the company’s goal of delivering a one-of-a-kind
experience and superior power tools—power tools that help you work faster, easier,
What is the driving force behind Festool? it is a passion for quality and a history
of innovation that continues to this day. In 1929, when Albert Fezer and Gottlieb
Stoll developed the first portable chainsaw, little did they know that, nearly 81
years later, the company they founded would be an industry leader, designing and
developing superior portable power tools for the way tradesmen work.
At Festool, our reputation has always been built on attention to detail, ergonomic
design and unyielding precision. Our power tools are designed to solve problems
and facilitate the highest-quality workmanship.
This commitment sets us apart in the industry. Our product developers visit woodworking
shops throughout the world, paying close attention to how work is done. Our power
tools are then designed to eliminate or combine steps, tighten tolerances, improve
accuracy, and help tradesmen deliver a superior finished product.
Our past uniquely positions us for the future. Festool is still privately held by
one of the original founding families. Throughout the years, Festool has continued
to set benchmarks for the industry with the introduction of the first orbital sander,
the first eccentric sander, the Rotex® dual-mode sander, the first
brushless drill driver, and the revolutionary DOMINO® tenon joiner.
