It is time for us to look back at 20AC0 which is coming to an end. A year unlike any other. This was the year where we should have celebrated our company's 75 year anniversary with our first International Pruning Contest in Switzerland. Unfortunately it was the year of social distancing, wearing masks and the fear of a worldwide pandemic which impacted our company and everyone’s day-to-day life.
But looking at the positive side, 2020 has been much more than that for FELCO ! The company successfully got through this period by adapting and sometimes reinventing itself. The merger of our two companies FELCO SA & FELCO Motion enabled us to reinforce our position, identity and recognition, with various award received this year. We were able to launch a new range of personal protection equipment with 3 models of gloves, and a special and limited edition of our iconic FELCO 2 pruning shears decorated with iconic Swiss symbols and manufactured in a limited series of 750 pieces. A collector's gift to slip under the tree!
The energy and motivation of people who are dedicated to FELCO: our employees, subsidiaries and worldwide partners, our ambassadors and community of FELCO Lovers. People who carry the brand values dear to our founder Félix Flisch: quality, innovation, know-how and sustainability and who have helped us reach our objectives by sharing these values. 2020 has prepared FELCO for one of our future targets : reinforcing our environmental and sustainable development commitments, which will be key central themes in 2021.
