Flex Power Tools was founded in 1922, in Stuttgart, Germany, by Hermann Ackermann and Hermann Schmitt to produce and sell their new invention: the MS 6 hand-held grinding machine, featuring an electrical motor that drives a flexible shaft.

Today, the company is owned by Chervon Holdings Ltd. and specializes in automotive and marine polishing tools as well as finishing tools such as wall sanders, grinders, stone polishers and vacuums.
