Makita, the foremost manufacturer of power tools in the world. With 100 years experience, our products are lauded the world over for both their performance and quality.
Key to Makita's vision is the constant strive for innovation in our technology and our products. From our safety solutions like AVT and dust extraction, through to our Lithium-Ion battery and chargers technology, Makita is at the forefront for new ideas.
This is all down to our dedicated research and development centre in Japan, where engineers work hard to constantly improve our products in all aspects, from power consumption to ergonomic design and function.
Makita manufactures its tools in plants across the globe, from its headquarters in Japan to here, in the UK. Its Telford manufacturing plant is the only full-production facility for power tools in the UK and has been successfully running construction on many of the company’s top line cordless power tools since 1991.
Makita's investment in the Telford plant has seen it take over production for the highly important MXT Combi Drill, one of the company's best selling products.
Makita's acquisition of Dolmar in 1991 has also meant that it has one of the strongest histories in the Outdoor Power Equipment market and the plant in Germany constantly delivers tools worldwide to the highest quality.
