    From advantage to profit.

    Our standardised workflows are the catalyst for any body shop. They accelerate and simplify processes in surface treatment and bring any repair efficiently to an end considerably faster. This is already noticeable with your Festool sanding machine and the new sanding process. A mere four grits separate the damage from the perfect sanding result. Simple processes, reproducible results – large impact.

  • All’s well

    WARRANTY all-inclusive

    WARRANTY all-inclusive is as much a part of Festool tools as quality and reliability. If you register your products within 30 days of purchase, you will profit from a comprehensive service package that saves you time, costs and nerves. This means that every tool is not only a good investment, but it is also a safe one.
