Makita UK

Makita is the leading world class brand of professional power tools and accessories known for quality, performance and durability in rigorous industrial use. Operating for over 100 years globally and for more than 45 years in the UK, Makita’s UK offices and main distribution centre is located in Milton Keynes. As market leader Makita is Britain’s number one professional power tool manufacturer and the only brand with a UK manufacturing facility which is located in Telford. The range has an extensive inventory of over 620 products which includes robust and reliable grounds maintenance and landscaping equipment for grounds care professionals. This outstanding range of petrol, electric and cordless tools offers many innovative technologies from Easy Start and Vibration Dampening, to Brushless motors and the innovative MM4 – the Makita mini 4-stroke engine. More innovative Makita tools are now powered by the Makita twin 18v Li-ion battery concept to deliver 36v performance whilst offering an economic solution for existing Makita battery-powered tool owners.

Manufacturing

Makita manufactures its tools in plants across the globe, from its headquarters in Japan to here, in the UK. Our Telford manufacturing plant is the only full-production facility for power tools in the UK and has been successfully running construction on many of our top line cordless power tools since 1991.

Makita's acquisition of Dolmar in 1991 has also meant that we have one of the strongest histories in the Outdoor Power Equipment market and the plant in Germany constantly delivers tools worldwide to the highest quality.

At the heart of our manufacturing process is the belief that for a good tool you need a good motor, and Makita makes every effort to make sure our motors are of the best quality. We source the absolute best raw materials and components in order to build the most powerful and efficient motors we can imagine.

Premium grade steel is used to produce armature shafts and gears, and only steel of the highest grade is used, whilst high grade magnetic copper wire goes into each and every one of our tools to ensure superior current flow whilst withstanding extreme temperatures.

Our quality control tests each, and every, machine that leaves our manufacturing plants. Nothing is left untested; on the motor alone we perform 19 extensive tests!

Our high standards go a long way, which is probably why when you buy Makita, it's likely to be a lasting relationship.
