METABO

The German company METABO are experts in manufacturing power tools, and produce everything from drills to glue guns, pumps and band saws. They specialize in manufacturing powerful cordless tools.

One of the largest power tool manufacturers in the world

METABO is a German firm which manufactures power tools for light and heavy engineering organizations. The company has its origins in 1924, when Albrecht Schnizler and Julian Closs jointly founded a company to manufacture high quality power tools. By 1929, the company had acquired a new name - Metabowerke GmbH - and the firm had begun to sell its signature hand drills by the thousand. From the start, METABO AG had to export its tools owing to the large demand for high quality tools from British steel-working companies, and foreign sales made up 80 percent of all sales by 1930, a sign of how forward thinking and technically successful METABO had become. After World War Two, the company flourished, and increased employee numbers from around 150 in the 1930s to over 1,000 by 1960.

Creating one of the world's largest portfolios of power tools

The product range also began to expand rapidly, with METABO introducing popular models of sander, electric hand grinders, and automatically controlled drills during the 1950s and 1960s. In 1969, the company had to expand into a new manufacturing facility in the town of Steinachwiesen, and international operations continued to expand as well. By 2010, METABO Group had created 24 overseas sales teams operating in 120 countries. The firm had also expanded to include 2,000 workers, with two production sites - one in Germany (at Nürtingen) and another in China. This growth was fuelled by constant demand for METABO's advanced power tools, which continued to innovate. In 2005, the firm introduced a light-weight and ultra-efficient range of lithium ion powered hand drills, while it consistently updated its cordless power tools to ensure that their mobility and ease of use was combined with power. The firm continues to place an emphasis on quality and manufacturing all components in-house. This ensures that METABO tools are durable and easily maintained should a new component be required.
