In 1922, Hermann Ackermann and Hermann Schmitt founded the company Ackermann & Schmitt in Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt to launch the MS6 hand grinder they had invented with an electric motor and flexible shaft. In 1935, Ackermann & Schmitt sold the first low-speed angle grinder, followed by the first high-speed unit in 1954. And thus the FLEX was born, nowadays a synonym for the angle grinder itself, from which the everyday term „flexen“ is also derived.

The FLEX brand appliances stand for tradition and innovation in equal measure: The classic products are maintained and constantly improved so that they excellently meet today's requirements in terms of durability, technology, performance, functionality, low noise and ergonomics. In addition, new, innovative products are developed and launched on the market. For the professional tools from FLEX, it is safe to say: Name and tradition oblige!
