History image of Dremel founder Albert J. Dremel

The Man Behind The Scene

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.

Quality

The 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. Wherever our users are, at home or at work, in a classroom or an engineering firm, Dremel will follow; helping them create, refine, & reinvent.

User-Centric

While we support makers across the globe and constantly push the envelope, we have not forgotten our Midwest hospitality. Our Wisconsin-based customer support team is always ready to help, and paired with our warranty, ensures you’ll always be ready to make.
