Hitachi Power Tools (UK) Limited, based in Milton Keynes in the United Kingdom, is a subsidiary company of Hitachi Koki Co. Limited, and part of the global Hitachi Corporation of Japan. Hitachi Koki Co Ltd was founded in December 1948 as a manufacturer of coal mining machinery and equipment and electric power tools.
In 1981 Hitachi Power Tools (UK) Limited was established in the London area, as part of Hitachi Koki's long-term export plan to distribute their power tools on a world wide scale. In 1987 the company moved into the purpose built Head Office in Milton Keynes, which remains the sales, marketing and distribution centre for the UK and Ireland.
Both the distributor network and the end user readily accepted the Hitachi power tool range, an acceptance based on product quality and reliability, backed by an excellent after sales service. The business has grown successfully and developed, generating a significant share of the market.
Hitachi Power Tools are produced in nine manufacturing plants throughout the world. The benefits obtained from this diverse manufacturing policy are the utilisation of local skilled labour, reliable component supply, economies of scale and geographical location.
Every time you choose to purchase a Hitachi power tool, you can be assured not only that you have made an excellent choice, but the tool that you have chosen has been designed for your satisfaction and peace of mind.
