The story of FEIN is the story of the invention of power tools.

In 1867, Wilhelm Emil Fein founded a company to manufacture physical and electrical equipment where his son Emil Fein invented the first electric hand drill almost 30 years later in 1895. This invention paved the way for highly reliable power tools, which FEIN still manufactures at its site in Germany and for which the long-standing German company is known in industry and manual trades throughout the world to this day.

FEIN has been a world-leading power tool manufacturer for over 150 years and without a doubt one of the main reasons for this is that FEIN continues to meet its own standard of only developing durable power tools with every new product innovation it creates today.
