Cutting, drilling, grinding, sanding, and demolishing are a little easier thanks to Makita U.S.A. The company makes more than 400 industrial-quality power tools, including drills, saws, wrenches, routers, sanders, blowers, vacuums, compressors, and power generators, as well as accessories for those tools. Makita U.S.A. has a manufacturing plant in Georgia, – more... four distribution facilities, and more than 600 authorized service centers throughout the US. Established in 1970, the company is a subsidiary of global power tool manufacturer Makita Corporation.

In recent years it has released cordless lithium-ion battery-powered drills, grinders, vacuums, and other tools. – less
