Only those with a great legacy can drive the future. The history of RUPES is composed of achievements, challenges, ideas, and international successes. In 1951 the RUPES 123 Stork was launched and instantly became an international hit that sparked the continued evolution of existing machine tools. Fast forward to 2010 under the brand BigFoot, the bar was set even higher in the world of car finishing and detailing. This new system offered random orbital polishers with 15mm and 21mm orbits, forever changing how technicians would approach the process of polishing and refinishing.
