Makita Power Tools
For over 100 years, Makita's focus on product innovation has led to several technological advancements and the development of industry leading products. Makita's innovative vibration safety system, AVT helps users combat the risks caused by vibration in power tools and their development of dust extraction systems reduces the danger of dust inhalation. Makita have led the charge (pardon the pun) in the development of modern Lithium-Ion battery technology, enabling Makita Power Tools to run for longer, whilst reducing the weight of the tools. These, and many other, power tool developments are the result of a dedicated research and development centre in Japan, where engineers work hard to constantly improve Makita products in all aspects, from power consumption through to ergonomic design and function. Makita operates manufacturing plants across the globe, from its headquarters in Japan to here, in the UK. The Telford manufacturing facility is the only full-production factory for power tools anywhere in the UK, and has been producing Makita cordless power tools since 1991. At the heart of the Makita manufacturing process is the quality of the motor. Makita only source the absolute highest quality raw materials and components in order to build the most powerful and efficient motors . Highest grade, premium steel is used to manufacture the armature shafts and gears, whilst high grade magnetic copper wire is used to produce the windings in each and every Makita power tool. This ensures superior current flow whilst enabling the motors to endure extreme temperatures. Makita's stringent quality control process mandates that each, and every, power tool that leaves any of Makita's manufacturing plants is rigorously tested. Nothing is left untested; the motor alone is subjected to 19 extensive tests!
