FEIN is famous as a globally active company with German roots that stands for high-quality power tools and accessories created for the toughest jobs in industry and the manual trades. In 1867, Wilhelm Emil Fein founded the company, whose cornerstone was laid with the invention of the electric hand drill – the world's first power tool. Today, FEIN has more than 700 active industrial property rights, including approximately 500 patents or patent applications. FEIN focuses on products and services that are ideal problem-solvers in metal processing and machining. They are sold around the world by over 16 subsidiaries and more than 50 agents.
As an independent family-run business, FEIN embodies an open corporate culture, attaches great importance to human interactions and provides plenty of space for innovative ideas. The company headquarters in Schwäbisch Gmünd-Bargau are home to the largest production site, which works in close collaboration with other sites in Asia and North America, ensuring consistently high manufacturing quality at all locations. The company employs around 800 members of staff globally, delivering a great deal of ingenuity and commitment to service, including setting future milestones in the development of premium power tool systems. This is precisely why FEIN is seen as professional – and has been for over 150 years.
