Makita Power Tools

Makita Power ToolsThe company formally titled Makita Electric works is famous for their line of power tools and mitre saws, and has a long and distinguished history of manufacturing high quality products which are well known for superior design, innovative features and high levels of durability.

The company originally started in 1915 in Japan as a repair and sales business for electric motors, but expanded rapidly. By 1958 Makita planers were amongst the first manufactured in Japan to run on electricity.

The following year the company changed focus and now Makita power tools are known throughout the world. At the same time as they started making power tools, Makita started exporting them worldwide

The company’s impressively intense research and development led to them pioneering the first rechargeable and cordless power tools in 1969, a Makita battery powered drill. Continuing their relentless progress, in 1978 they introduced the first power tool operated by a nickel cadmium battery, the Makita rechargeable drill range.

By 1981 Makita were known worldwide as pioneers in their industry and again struck gold when they introduced the world’s first ever air tool – the Makita pneumatic nailer – along with an air compressor.

Progress has continued steadily ever since. In 1997 they launched the first nickel hydride battery operated tools and in 2005 the Makita LXT lithium ion battery range once more took the world by storm.
