New products




In 1922, Hermann Ackermann and Hermann Schmitt started a company in Stuttgart- Bad Cannstatt to produce and sell their new invention: the MS 6 hand-held grinding machine, featuring an electrical motor that drove a flexible shaft. This feature was the inspiration for this brand-new tool’s name: FLEX. And this is the origin of today’s brand name and a verb that has become an integral part of everyday German vocabulary: “flexen”.


In 1996, Ackermann + Schmitt renamed itself FLEX. In 2006, “flexen” was officially added to the Duden spelling dictionary.


The heart beating in any original FLEX is created from the outset in our motor manufacturing plant in Steinheim. This is where a wide range of electric motors are produced, perfectly matched to customer needs. From the fully automated winding of magnetic fields through our state-of-the-art powder-coating line to the precision lathe.


The use of the latest manufacturing systems in motor production, steel and aluminium machining and the continuous quality controls in all other stages of production ensure the high quality standards. The state-of-the-art processing machines guarantee a high degree of flexibility in manufacture and enable us to respond rapidly to customer wishes. Quality and functional checks during the entire manufacturing process are standard policy in the company.


In the FLEX Research and Development Department, all new developments and existing products are tested on test stands and in continuous use to ensure they meet our quality and functional requirements. Ongoing staff training is a fundamental requirement for us, to ensure that FLEX remains able to apply the latest manufacturing technologies in the future.
