Festo was initially founded in 1925 and has grown from manufacturing wood-cutting tools, most notably the first portable petrol chainsaw, to developing pneumatics and industrial products.

Over the years as Festo grew, it diversified into the automation and manufacturing industry and is now a market leader in electrical and pneumatics drive and control technologies. Along the way, Festo has acquired many new locations, employees and product ranges as they develop their offering.

Currently, Festo employs around 20,100 people across the globe with an annual turnover of over 3.1 billion euros. The business is still family owned, and their independent financial status allows the company to follow their path and commit to long-term projects.

Festo’s philosophies are focused on industrial education, resource conservation and contributing to the overall quality of life.
