    "...FACOM is now the exclusive supplier to the Ferrari Formula One team. And for a good reason. Quality.

    FACOM (pronounced "Fä-come") is an acronym for "Franco-Américaine de Construction d'Outillage Mécanique" which, when translated from French, means "French-American Mechanical Tool Manufacturing." The American tradition of quality tools, combined with the French tradition of innovation, has made FACOM the number one selling tool line in Europe...

    FACOM was first to offer an adjustable wrench back in 1918. Affectionately named the Madame 101, this wrench started what was to become over 80 years of commitment to quality and innovation...

    Over 40 years ago, long before lifetime tool guarantees were popular, FACOM offered this service and continues it to this day. Break one of your father's 20 year old 1/2" sockets? Send it back for a full replacement, anytime! "

    As to why are they at Costco, I have no idea. Check the other thread there may be answers there.
