Lowe’s to Launch New Cordless Power Tool Innovation
MOORESVILLE, N.C., March 18, 2021 — Lowe’s Companies, Inc (NYSE: LOW) and Chervon today announced the exclusive launch of FLEX, a line of cutting-edge, cordless power tools. The first FLEX tools, accessories, batteries and chargers will be available on Lowes.com on April 12 and at stores nationwide this spring, followed by a multi-year rollout of more than 100 FLEX platform-compatible tools.
The all-new FLEX 24V platform features industry-leading lithium-ion and brushless motor technologies with 20 percent more power than competitors and up to 50 percent faster charging. Additionally, FLEX will include a limited lifetime warranty on any tool, battery or charger purchase with registration in 2021.
“100 years ago, FLEX changed the world of tools with our very first invention, the FLEXible Shaft Grinder and followed that up with the introduction of the world’s first Angle Grinder in 1954,” said Mike Clancy, CEO at Chervon North America, the parent company of FLEX. “Since then, we’ve been focused on tools made for the trades to deliver the absolute best in terms of power, run-time and recharge time thanks to our proprietary lithium-ion battery technology.”
“As the New Home for Pros, Lowe’s is committed to offering the very best quality, durability and product innovation for today’s most discerning builders, contractors and trade professionals,” said Bill Boltz, executive vice president of merchandising at Lowe’s. “This FLEX launch allows our customers to find the latest innovation in our tool department with a brand that will strengthen the industry and how people work.”
Notable FLEX products include:
- The FLEX ½” 2-Speed Drill Driver with Turbo Mode is the platform’s most powerful drill, delivering 1,400 inch-pounds of torque. When combined with turbo mode of 2,500 RPMs, it delivers dramatically faster results. Additional innovative features include sensor-free brushless motors and anti-kickback technology.
- The FLEX ¼” Quick Eject Impact Driver delivers unrivaled torque, power and speed. A quick eject collet allows for faster, one handed bit changes. Select from three different speeds and self-tapping screw modes for more control when fastening screws.
- The FLEX Reciprocating Saw with Quick Eject delivers power and performance while cutting up to 50 4x4s on a single charge (with 5.0 Ah battery). The keyless blade eject allows for quick blade changes without having to touch hot blades. Shockshield™ vibration suppression allows for up to 40 percent less vibration for maximum control.
On April 12, FLEX will host the “FLEX Face Off,” a launch event at 8pm ET/5pm PT. Viewers can learn more about the brand and see FLEX tools go head-to-head against some of the industry’s top brands and hear how to enter to win a full lineup of FLEX 24V power tools or a brand-new Ford F-150.
