Makita UK is celebrating 50 years of trading in the UK. Since entering the UK market in 1972, Makita has delivered a range of high-quality, durable tools that tradespeople across the country can rely on to tackle any job.
2022 marks the 50th anniversary of the opening of Makita’s first UK office. For half a century, the company has forged a strong presence in the UK with a national network of distributors and merchant partners, as well as investment into four purpose-built factory service centres and training facilities throughout the UK.
With over 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 over 270 LXT and 50 XGT cordless models in its portfolio, a collection of highly durable machines that can tackle any task. With long battery life and short charge times, the LXT and XGT ranges ensure faster and more efficient work.
Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita says: “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 UK will be announcing a number of exciting promotions and product launches throughout the year.
