For over 90 years, everyone has heard of it. Many use it every day. But very few people know that “flexen”, a common German verb, actually refers back to an invention developed by FLEX, formerly known as Ackermann + Schmitt.

WHERE DOES "FLEXING" ACTUALLY COMES FROM?

gallery/eee

In 1922, Hermann Ackermann and Hermann Schmitt started a company in Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt to produce and sell their new invention: the MS 6 hand-held grinding machine, featuring an electrical motor that drove a flexible shaft. This feature was the inspiration for this brand-new tool’s name: FLEX. And this is the origin of today’s brand name and a verb that has become an integral part of everyday German vocabulary: “flexen”.
