AEG tools are a division of Allgemeine Elektrizitäts-Gesellschaft (which translates to General Electricity Company), a company founded in Berlin in 1887 that first produced electric light bulbs. The company went on to produce the first transportable drilling machines in 1898, and have since produced everything from cars, trains, power tools and electric machines to instruments, nuclear power, motors, microelectronics and more, all “Perfekt in Form und Funktion.”
AEG tools have undergone many aesthetic changes, from black, to blue, to its current orange colour, but the quality of their tools have been consistently maintained.
The rights to produce AEG-branded power tools have recently been licensed to Techtronic Industries, a Hong Kong based company who also manufacture Milwaukee and Ryobi power tools. AEG tools are branded as Ridgid in America.
AEG tools are designed for trade use.
AEG tools have a 6 year extended product warranty and a 3 year extended battery warranty (for cordless tools) with online registration. This is the longest product warranty offered in both Australia and New Zealand.
All AEG tools purchased before 1 January 2013 have a 3 year standard repair warranty.
