MAKITA, the power tool manufacturer, is celebrating 50 years of trading in the UK – and has promised “exciting promotions and launches” to mark the occasion. 

For half a century, the company has built its presence across the country. Beginning with its first office in 1972, its portfolio has grown into a national network of distributors and merchant partners, as well as four purpose-built factory service centres and training facilities.

With more than 100 years of experience, the company’s dedication to and investment in product development has resulted in a vast range of cordless machines that deliver the flexibility and safety needed for regular, professional use.

Today, the company offers more than 270 LXT and 50 XGT cordless models in its portfolio. 

Kevin Brannigan, marketing manager, said: “We are delighted to be marking our 50th year of trading in the UK. We are incredibly proud of what we have been able to achieve since 1972 – and the vast array of cordless products and new technologies that we can offer tradespeople to aid their productivity and efficiency on site.”

To mark its 50th anniversary, Makita will be announcing a number of exciting promotions and product launches throughout the year.
