Makita, a company founded years ago in Anjo, Japan started as a power tool repair business. It created its first power tool, a first of its kind in the world in 1969 with a fully rechargeable hand drill. After this milestone of theirs, the company began producing an ever-increasing range of power tools and most recently expanded into gardening equipment and tools.
Dewalt is an American company that was founded almost 100 years ago by the inventor of the radial arm saw, Raymond E. Dewalt in Leola, Pennsylvania. After 20 odd years, it was bought by the American Machine & Foundry CO. and was later sold to Black & Decker.
Since 2013, Dewalt has been using parts manufactured in China, Italy, Brazil, Mexico, the United Kingdom and the Czech Republic which have then been assembled in the United States.
The company launched a new innovative battery pack that had hybrid voltage in 2016 and named it ‘FLEXVOLT’. It now produces over 200 different power tools, along with 800+ accessories.
