Altes historisches Feintool Gebäude von 1959


Starting with a single site in Switzerland, we have grown into an innovator of fineblanking technology with numerous sites worldwide. But not only that: We actively shape next-generation technologies such as electrolamination stamping, utilising our expertise in production.

Inimitable spirit.

From a family-owned
company to world market leader.

His experiences as a toolmaker at the large Italian company, Olivetti, had a profound impact on the life of Feintool founder Fritz Bösch. As early as the 1950s, he foresaw the demand for highly precise industrial fineblanked parts. With his feel for new requirements and future markets coupled with a pioneering spirit, the entrepreneur turned the family business into a global market leader – the beginning of a mindset characterized by constructiveness, individuality, and productivity, where utmost precision merges with a human touch.

The world of technology as a showcase for innovation.

As a family-owned company with a constant eye on the future,  we innovate in fineblanking, forming, and electrolamination stamping at over 17 sites worldwide,  shaping tomorrow’s technological world today. Even now, our employees’ broad diversity makes the subtle difference.

Proven quality.

Thanks to our strong presence in Europe, North America, and Asia, along with our incomparably high quality standards, we have consistently been able to stand our ground again and again even during challenging times. With continual development serving as our motivation, and success forming the foundation of our daily actions, we can now look back on our position as a market leader. This was achieved through the integration of new technologies like non-cutting forming in 2021 and expansion into markets such as China, ensuring future security.  At Feintool we know that only those prepared to continually question the status quo can decisively influence the future.

Worldwide manufacturing capabilities.

We recognised the rapidly changing requirements of the sector at an early stage. Since 2018, laser cutting and electrolamination stamping have been part of the portfolio as our third mainstay. Today, our presence on three continents enables multi-country manufacturing capabilities with the same uncompromising processes and quality standards. In 2022, the acquisition of Kienle + Spiess GmbH significantly expanded our technology portfolio with electrolamination stamping,  thereby positioning us  to meet the growing needs of renewable energy, electric motor and industrial application markets. We are already thinking about the future.
