QR Codes

An introduction to QR Codes.

You may have noticed that, for the past year or so, Festool has been putting these weird looking codes on advertisements in magazines, posters in stores and in our catalogs. So what are they and how are they used? They are called QR (Quick Response) Codes and can be scanned by most smartphones, tablet computers and similar devices to take you to a website. This puts the information you're looking for right at your fingertips, quick and convenient.

Festool USA Celebrates Headquarters Grand Opening

Friday, April 4, 2008 | Reader Comments | General Information

On Saturday, April 12th, 2008, Festool USA employees, several Festool dealers, members of the media, local officials, and other guests attended the official grand opening of the new headquarters building in Lebanon, Indiana. The new facility was completed in late summer of 2007 and has become the central location for warehousing and distribution.

Among the attendees, we were honored with a visit from Ms. Maier-Stoll, owner of Tooltechnic Systems (Festool),and her daughter, Ms. Barbara Austel. Rather than a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony, we chose to do it the Festool way. Ms. Austel cut the red "ribbon" made of wood with a Festool Kapex sliding compound miter saw, the much anticipated newest addition to Festool's portable power tool offerings which will be available in July 2008. Of course, with no dust to clean up the festivities were immediately back underway.

Also among the guests were several of the most prominent members of Festool Germany including Mr. Horst Geiger (Speaker of the Management Board), Mr. Richard Bantel (the architect of the Festool headquarters building), Mr. Michael Bayer (VP of Marketing) and Dr. Christoph Weiss (Member of the Advisory Board).

Guests had an opportunity to tour the new building, view a presentation showing the process of Festool product development, view photographs showing the evolution of Festool USA over the years and view Festool's newest products: the MFT/3, MFK 700 and OF 2200, all available May 2008.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the Festool community for the support of the Festool brand.
