FEW products are exported to 40 countries worldwide through a distribution network of stocking depots and exclusive agents.

The French Engineering Works is a family business which was established in 1918 to manufacture Rock Drill spares for the mining industry in Johannesburg. The founder, Herman Moser, soon expanded into precision tools, including HSS cutting tools for the metal industry. His Swiss origins instilled a pride in quality and precision which persists to the present day.

Recognising the positive impact of specialisation on quality, Herman's sons restructured the diverse business in mid-century. The sharp focus on threading and decades of technical and market development, led to the recognition of FEW Taps and Dies in over forty countries. Distribution depots were strategically located to service major industrial regions in both domestic and international markets.

Customer demand for a wider range of FEW quality cutting tools led to an ongoing search for focused manufacturers of complementary products. Today, over twenty specialists on five continents manufacture complementary products specified by FEW. The appointment of exclusive agents, together with the technical and commercial support of FEW have led to FEW Cutting Tools being specified worldwide by discriminating end-users who insist on quality and value for money.
