History

Founded in 1867 by Wilhelm Emil Fein and his brother Carl, C. & E. Fein. The first products of the company from 1873 were medical inductors. In 1895, Fein invented the electric hand drill, which is considered the forerunner of power tools. The first "drill with electro-pneumatic hammer mechanism" was built in 1914 by the company and applied for a patent.

Fein developed the first tin snips and the first jigsaw in 1927. In the 1950s, a handy small drill called "Fein-Zwerg " helped boost popularity.

Fein invented the first power tool with oscillation technology in 1967 and is now know by its popular name Multitool. In 1985, the company's first cordless screwdriver appeared. In 1987, the Fein quick-clamping system QuickIN made the handling of angle grinders considerably safer. In 2011 Fein also presented the first handheld core drilling system for metal, KBH 25.
