About The Company
Milwaukee Tools is an industry-leading manufacturer of heavy-duty power tools, accessories and hand tools for professional users worldwide.
Since the company began in 1924, Milwaukee Tool has led the industry in both durability and performance. With an unwavering commitment to the trades, Milwaukee continues to lead with a focus on providing innovative, trade-specific solutions. Whether it is through their leadership in LITHIUM-ION technology, as seen in the M12™, M18™ & M28™ Systems, time-saving accessories or innovative hand tool products, Milwaukee is dedicated to delivering a steady stream of advanced solutions for the trades that offer increased productivity and unmatched durability.
To do this, Milwaukee takes the time to work side by side with a real craftsman to understand the demands of a constantly changing workplace and how they can best deliver solutions that help the user work both faster and smarter. Milwaukee knows that professional users sweat the small stuff, and so do they. They pay attention to the small details that that make a big difference. This user focus not only leads to solutions for real job site challenges but fuels the disruptive innovation seen across all product lines.
Milwaukee Tools Quality
Quality is our highest priority. Starting with an understanding of the professional power tool user’s needs, quality is shaped through the design of superior products, components and processes and is extended through the use of high-grade materials, supplies and stringent in-house/field testing.
The process is completed with the delivery of heavy-duty power tools and accessories that professional users need and demand. Quality has built Milwaukee’s reputation since 1924, and continues to be the driving force behind its growth.
Milwaukee manufactures its signature red power tools in both 120 and 230 volts for worldwide use. The extensive product line covers over 500 different power tool models ranging from Sawzall® reciprocating saws, circular saws, driver drills, hammer drills, rotary hammers, band saws, grinders and sanders to tools designed for specific applications such as diamond drilling rigs, Steel Hawg® cutting systems, Sharp-Fire® screw-shooter systems and cordless caulking guns.
In addition, over 3,500 accessories are available to support every product. Accessories include Sawzall blades, jig saw blades, band saw blades, circular saw blades, hole saws, twist bits, wood boring bits, core bits and diamond blades, grinding wheels, wire brushes, router bits, screwdriver bits, sanding discs and belts and percussion bits.
A complete searchable database of Milwaukee’s worldwide service locations will be found under the Find a Service Center in Parts & Service section.
Innovation & Product Development
Since its founding in 1924, Milwaukee Electric Tool has been an industry leader in power tool innovation. Just some of the innovative products from Milwaukee include the Tilt-Lok, the world’s first adjustable handle circular saw; the BodyGrip® Router with an exclusive tactile grip and adjustable hand strap, and the Sawzall – the Hatchet® Reciprocating Saw with 6-position rotatable handle.
The Milwaukee V28™ lithium-ion cordless tool system was yet another new revolution in the power tool industry. As the first to incorporate lithium-ion battery technology in its cordless power tools, Milwaukee’s V28 battery delivers up to twice the run-time and 40-50% more power than an 18-volt NiCd battery of the same weight.
More recently Milwaukee innovation continued with the M12 and M18 cordless system of power tools which are precisely designed to deliver the power, speed, torque and durability necessary for diverse professional applications.
From customer input research, CAD design, in-house extensive life and reliability testing, rapid prototype development and field testing to final product launch, Milwaukee prides itself on its reputation for delivering innovative, quality power tools and accessories.
In keeping with its mission of producing only high-quality heavy-duty products for professional users, Milwaukee branched into the hand tool market in 2007 by purchasing the Stiletto Tool Company, the leading manufacturer of innovative professional titanium hammers and other hand tools, stiletto.com.
Innovation. Quality. Heavy Duty.
From the introduction of the Hole-Shooter in 1924 ? the first lightweight, portable, one-handed 1/4″ capacity drill ? Milwaukee Electric Tool established a tradition of producing innovative heavy-duty electric power tools designed specifically to meet the ever-changing needs of the professional user.
The right-angle drill, self-contained portable electric hacksaw, the Sawzall® Reciprocating Saw, the Hole-Hawg® High-Torque Drill and the Super Sawzall® Reciprocating Saw are just some of the other landmark products Milwaukee has produced throughout its 85-year history. Today, Milwaukee produces more than 500 tools and 3,500 accessories which exceed that of any other power tool manufacturer. We like to think that using a Milwaukee power tool is the next best thing to a job that builds itself.
The combination of incorporating innovative ideas and design with unparalleled reliability makes Milwaukee unique in the power tool market. Plain and simple Milwaukee products are the best you can buy.
