Inception / Founding / Company History
Makita tools are produced by the Makita Corporation, which was originally founded as Makita Electric Works in March of 1915 by Mr. Mosaburo Makita and three employees. In the early years of the company, they repaired electrical motors, expanding into manufacturing electrical motors as time went on. In 1958, over 40 years after its founding, they produced their first tool, an electric planer. In 1993, Makita celebrated its one millionth power tool. Today, Makita tools can be found in every tool shed, box, and belt.
Over the many years in which they’ve been in business, Makita has grown to be a leading producer and designer of gasoline-powered outdoor equipment and portable, electric, and pneumatic power tools. Their diverse range of products includes chainsaws, line trimmers, generators, power cuts, and even water pumps. Every one of these tools is built with the highest quality materials and go through very strict quality control examinations to make sure they will perform well once they’ve left the factory. Because of their rigorous testing, you always know that your Makita tools are safe, reliable, and up to the standards of both you and Makita.
