Makita had a humble beginning in an electric motor repair shop and continues to advance its research and development, engineering, and manufacturing. With a customer-focused mindset, they adopted LITHIUM-ION technology to reduce tool weights and develop their tools to handle every task imaginable. Makita’s cordless power tools achieved high performance and are trusted by NASA professionals for work on the International Space Station. Makita values customer safety so they incorporated features into their tool designs to ensure a safe operation without undermining the overall performance. They have made the environment a priority by instilling recycling and emission reduction programs in their factories.
