The company was founded in 1925 by Albert Fezer and Gottlieb Stoll in southern Germany. Ever since their goal has been to offer the expert tradesman tools to make daily work better and easier. This effort has led to numerous technological breakthroughs like the first portable chainsaw and has made Festool a leader in innovation, expertise, and quality. 

During the past 76 years, techniques, technology and the work you do have all changed. festool has been one of the drivers of this change, with major innovations all along the way. They’ve focused on the needs of the skilled trades, and are proud of the close relationship they enjoy with their users. 

As they developed, so did their logo and name. Festo has been changed to Festool, better reflecting what they’re all about – tools. The name has changed, but their commitment has not. They will continue to give you the best in technology, quality and results, with tools that are like nothing else.
