Top cordless drill makers: Makita

Makita Corporation is Japan's number one manufacturer and exporter of electric power tools.
In 1958, Makita introduced their first electric tool. In January of that year, Makita began selling portable electric planers, the first such product in Japan.
The company credited its success in the domestic power tool market to high quality construction, pioneering research and development, and a unique system of direct distribution. Instead of relying on wholesalers to market its tools to retailers, Makita employed its own direct sales force. Makita used its comparatively low-cost production base to advantage in Europe and the United States. By the end of the 1970s, the company had captured almost one-fifth of the global professional tool market, nearly matching Black & Decker Corporation's market share. On the product development front, the company introduced the world's first cordless miter saw and also launched a line of 18-volt cordless power tools during 1999. Among the new products debuting the following year was a circular saw with an attached dust collector and also the world's first line of cordless tools powered by nickel-metal hydride batteries. The latter were more environmentally friendly than the previously ubiquitous nickel-cadmium batteries, which contained cadmium, a heavy metal. By this time, the company had developed a recycling program that enabled customers to return their used batteries--both types--to any retailer within Makita's huge worldwide network.
Today Makita is one of the world's largest power tool manufacturers with seven manufacturing facilities globally and a selection of over 350 superior, innovative tools and well over 4,500 accessories.
Makita continues to set the standard for quality, reliability and performance by manufacturing innovative power tools. More informations about Makita you can find here, also you can visit official site of Makita Corp.
