Mr. Mosaburo Makita and three employees founded Makita Corporation as Makita Electric Works in March 1915. The company initially started out repairing electrical motors. From that small beginning, Makita expanded into manufacturing electrical motors for various applications. In January 1958, the company introduced its first power tool—an electric planer. The heart of any power tool is the electric motor, and it is Makita Corporation’s continued research that allows it to produce the highest quality product in the marketplace today.
