Top cordless drill makers: DeWALT

You buy a machine and what you really get is satisfaction, entire satisfaction.

- R. E. DeWALT

The original company was started in 1924 by Raymond E. DeWalt, the inventor of the radial arm saw. The company grew quickly and was reorganized in 1947, manufacturing radial arm saws and other stationary woodworking machines. After buying the company in 1949, American Machine & Foundry Co. Inc. sold it to Black & Decker in 1960. Black & Decker divested itself of the radial arm saw manufacturing branch in 1989, selling it to two executives. Radial arm saws that use the original DeWalt design can still be obtained from the Original Saw Co.

In 1992, Black & Decker started a major effort to rebrand its professional quality and high-end power tools to DeWalt.

In 1994, DeWalt took over the German high end wood working power tool producer ELU. DeWalt enlarged their assortment of cordless tools and other tools using ELU's technology. DeWalt has maintained this focus on high-end branding, and consistenly is identified as the most preferred brand of commercial tools in recent surveys of commercial contractors

Today the DeWALT Power Tools line consists of over 200 electric power tools and over 800 accessories including: drills and hammer drills; screwdrivers; circular, chop, miter, table, reciprocating, and jig saws; planers; impact wrenches; die, angle, and bench grinders; shears; nibblers; sanders; laminate trimmers; routers, and plate joiners.
