The Festool European Tour 2014, which stopped at just 15 specially-selected retailers including Mercer & Sons, visited us on Saturday 13th September - and what a great success the day was! We would like to offer our warmest thanks to Festool, to everyone who attended and also to our dedicated and highly-skilled staff, all of whom helped to make the event “one of the best on the European tour”, according to a Festool representative.
Designed to showcase iconic classics as well as the newest models to emerge from Festool, a company known for the particular talent and creativity of its cherry-picked engineers, the tour travelled Europe in a specially-commissioned truck which, fully-articulated and gleaming like it had just come off the factory line, rolled up to Mercer & Sons bang on time at 8:30 AM on Saturday and caused quite a stir amongst other road users and passersby!
Seeing is believing and so the Festool power tools were soon out and being demonstrated, by both Festool representatives and our staff, who have received direct training from the company in order to be able to always offer our customers the clearest, most relevant and competent personal advice when choosing exactly the right tool for the job.
Festool power tools are premium items though, as was made clear by the many impressive demonstrations, are an investment that is worth every penny. Dramatically improving safety and efficiency, the tools spoke for themselves at the “superb and very professional display”, in the words of Neal from Mercer & Sons Architectural Ironmongery Lancashire.
The tour truck stayed with us until well into the afternoon, generating lots of interest and staying busy until the end. Asked to comment on how he felt the day went, Neal said happily, “..the result was a tribute to the tremendous work the staff put in to get the event on to such a high standard.. it was a great success”.
Don’t despair if you missed the visit from the Festool European Tour 2014! Thanks to our continuous programme of staff training, which is right up-to-date and accommodates the very latest Festool power tools knowledge, our team are always available to help every step of the way, from delivering hands-on demonstrations to discussing and bringing clarity to technical specifications.
