Fein Power Tools (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) has announced that it will market its entire lineup of magnetic drills and cutters under the brand name Slugger, a decision made after the recent acquisition of the brand’s original developer, Jancy Engineering. The brand now encompasses both companies’ similar lines of portable magnetic drills.
“Going forward, this will assure our customers that the products they are currently using, whether Jancy or FEIN, will continue to be manufactured and serviced,” says Jens Gschoessl, FEIN marketing manager. She adds that the company’s headquarters in Germany will perform product engineering, while the Jancy group will serve as its U.S. manufacturing arm.
