Festool celebrates 20th anniversary with Emerald Edition collection

Power tool innovator Festool USA is celebrating 20 years of business in the US - its emerald anniversary - with a limited release of its Emerald Edition tools.

The Emerald Edition collection consists of six precision-engineered tool options, each of which is housed in limited edition Blue Systainer packaging. Each of the tools will include an assortment of complementary accessories worth up to $136.

Rick Bush, vice president of marketing for Festool, said: "Our goal with the Emerald Edition celebration is to honour our loyal customers with an incredible value and real 'thank you' as well.

"The handsome Emerald Blue Systainers not only help keep craftsmen organised and boost productivity, but also will remind them of our appreciation for the 20-year journey that we have shared together. At the same time, the accompanying accessories are bonuses that every Festool user will surely appreciate."

As part of the anniversary celebration, Festool is also giving craftsmen the chance to learn from its trainers through the Emerald Edition Sweepstakes. When participants purchase and register their Emerald Edition tools, they will be entered for the Grand Prize of receiving a trip to Festool USA headquarters in Lebanon, Indiana, to spend a day with a Festool expert-trainer.

"The Emerald Edition tools, as well as the sweepstakes event, have been well received in the marketplace since their recent unveiling," Bush continued. "These limited-edition tools and the sweepstakes present a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for skilled specialists.

"We are delighted to celebrate the Festool brand with tradesmen who demand unmatched precision and performance, a standard that Festool has delivered on in North America for the last 20 years."
