Ideas and products
When patenting his very first pruning shears (FELCO 1), Félix Flisch, was already adhering to the following principles:
- Making the tool as ERGONOMIC as possible;
- Making components with the utmost precision to achieve the INTERCHANGEABILITY of all parts;
- Making use of the best available materials to guarantee the cutting quality and DURABILITY of the tools.
These three core values - ERGONOMICS, INTERCHANGEABILITY and DURABILITY - remain unchanged and have driven FELCO's business strategy since 1945.
In order to establish and consolidate its product strategy, FELCO listens to its markets and is sensitive to the needs of its customers. The desire to deliver innovative and ground-breaking solutions is ongoing. The Research and Development department's mission is to secure the future of the company by ensuring that it remains a step ahead of its competitors.
In its almost 70 years of existence, FELCO has witnessed the significant expansion of its range. The simple pruning shears that launched the company have been joined by revolving-handle pruning shears and subsequently, powered tools to result in today's range of high-performance products, manufactured from increasingly innovative materials.
As demonstrated by the triangular cutting action of FELCO Cable and Wire cutters, innovative and relevant ideas are always well received in the market.
Industrial and technological know-how
From the outset, FELCO has sought to master all industrial processes and technologies required to design and manufacture its product range. This attitude allowed FELCO to systematically integrate technological advances into every stage of production and to enhance them with the know-how acquired over 60 years of manufacturing experience. The full mastery of production processes guarantees the consistent quality of products; the added mastery of production capacity assures faultless and timely deliveries to customers.
