Founded Makita Electric Works (proprietorship) in Nagoya City. Began selling and repairing lighting equipment, motors, and transformers.


In 1958, Makita Corporation, which was founded in 1915 as an electric motor sales and repair company, became the first company in Japan to manufacture and sell electric planers. Over the half century since, Makita has worked to build a steady position as a manufacturer of  portable power tools and, today, continues its quest forward to provide products and services that are beneficial to all types of customers  engaged in housing construction. Makita’s history also parallels that of the evolution of power tools and, over the course of its history,  Makita has worked to dovetail its products to its customers’ developing needs.
