Our power tools are built for real challenges
The freedom to turn an idea into reality. To implement a project – without interruptions or downtimes. To achieve this in the shortest amount of time, with maximum efficiency and with minimum physical strain … there are thousands of challenges for a modern power tool. Our devices are designed to cope with these challenges and to meet the highest of demands, offering impressive performance, ergonomics and design. The focus in all three disciplines is not only on achieving an appealing appearance, but above all for the overall benefit to the user. For years, many of our machines and accessories have been receiving awards, including the iF Product Design Award – such as the FS guide rail, TSC 55 plunge-cut saw or, currently, our SYSROCK radio. It is something we are extremely proud of.
A population of 1,846 people, 20,000 cherry trees and a 'factory of the year'
