A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to take a trip to the Festool headquarters located in Wendlingen, Germany. During my visit, I had the opportunity to tour the production facilities where Festool power tools are born. The operation was just as impressive as the tools that are produced there with exacting detail given to every step of the manufacturing process.
While there were quite a few moments during the tour where I found myself in awe, one thing that stuck in my mind. During the manufacturing process, if a part of tool is accidentally dropped on the floor (which you could practically eat off of) then it was tossed into a waste bucket and could not be used in a tool. This just speaks volumes about the lengths to which our production facilities go to ensure that every tool that makes its way to our customers are of the absolute highest quality with no compromises along the way.
