Makita Electric Works, famous for their power tools, has a long history of manufacturing high quality products known for superior, innovative design and durability!
The company first started operations in Japan in 1915, almost a century ago, and was founded as a repair and electric motor sales business. Several years down the road, in 1958, Makita became the first Japanese manufacturer of electric planers.
The next year, in 1959, Makita changed its focus to manufacturing electric power tools.
The rest, as they say, is history.
In the same year the company switched to manufacturing electric power tools, it initiated the export of power tools with a shipment of 1300 hand held electric planers to Australia.
In 1960, Makita completed a brand new manufacturing plant, and two years later changed the company name to Makita Electric Works, Ltd.
In April of 1969, thanks to intense research and development, Makita pioneered the first rechargeable power tool: the 6500D battery powered drill.
Battery powered tools have been a boon to millions of workers, both professional and Do-It-Yourselfers, all over the world!
Not content to rest on its laurels, the company went on in 1978 to introduce the first nickel cadmium battery operated tool, a rechargeable drill.
Still the pioneer in the world of power tools, in 1981 Makita once more revolutionized the industry with the introduction of the world’s first air tool—a pneumatic nailer—along with an air compressor.
Again….hats off to Makita! Anyone who has ever worked with tools realizes the beneficial impact these air tools have had on the industry!
Nobody could call Makita a one or even a two trick pony, because in 1997 the company launched the first nickel hydride battery operated tool, which was exhibited at the Chicago Hardware Show.
Continuing this tradition of innovation, Makita brought the first Lithium Ion battery operated tool onto the market in 2005.
Through the years, Makita Power Tools have opened new manufacturing plants and launched sales internationally. Their brand name is synonymous with state-of-the art, cutting edge technology and a commitment to excellence!
