Men’s shaving has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1937 when
Remington® launched its first electric shaver, the Model E. With a unique
turn-wheel, start-induction motor, the Model E quickly placed Remington® at
the pinnacle of razor technology. Shortly after came the introduction of
Remington’s first multi-head shaver, the Dual, in 1940 and the first cordless
shaver, the Lektronic, in 1960.

Remington’s latest and most popular shaving ranges are the R and F series, an
advanced collection of rotary and foil shavers featuring unique Pivot & Flex
technology, engineered for extreme precision and an ultra-comfortable shaving

Remington® has an established position at the cutting edge of technology,
creating superior products through the decades that help give men confidence
to be ready for anything – from the clean-cut look of the 1950s, to the
sideburns of the 1970s, and to the designer stubble of today’s modern man.
Remington’s 75-year expertise in shaving is testament to a brand dedicated to
quality, innovation and style.
