Makita Corporation came from humble beginnings. Almost 100 years ago in a small shop, Makita started out as an electric motor repair company. During these early years, a wealth of knowledge was collected giving way for the first electric power tools to be built. From the very beginning, it was clear that providing exceptional products and service would be the cornerstone for building a successful partnership with you our customer, then and today. Makita continually makes significant investments where it counts… research and development, engineering, manufacturing, and customer service. Our growth and success in the power tool industry has proven that this is the winning formula. – less
