An immigrant named Albert J. Dremel founded the Dremel Manufacturing Company in Racine, Wisconsin in 1932. One of the first products released was the Moto-Tool, the grandfather of the modern-day rotary tool. Described as “the pocket sized machine shop for all of your needs”, the tool could polish, grind, drill, saw and much more.
This focus on user application is the guiding star in our history. We have refined the rotary tool increasing its possible application through the introduction of numerous corded and cordless tool models that can be matched with more than 150 accessories and attachments. We have reinvented the oscillating and compact saw, setting the standard for what safety and reliability mean in the industry. We have are creating new and innovative technologies with Dremel DigiLab; building powerful, workhorse 3D printers and approachable, easy to use Laser Cutters.
DigiLab’s focus is on shaping the new generation of pioneers; At Dremel DigiLab, we believe that the great innovators of tomorrow are being inspired, equipped and prepared every day by passionate teachers and their supporting school systems.
