The Milwaukee power tool company was founded in 1924 as a result of the “Hole-Shooter”, the first lightweight, portable, one-handed 1/4″ capacity drill. The company continued its reputation as an innovator by designing a unique, space-efficient right-angle drill in 1949, the first self-contained portable electric hacksaw, the Sawzall® reciprocating saw in 1951, and the Hole-Hawg® high-torque drill in 1970, all of which became the industry standard for contractors.
Since its founding, every Milwaukee power tool has been the result of the company’s single focused vision: to produce the best heavy-duty electric power tools and accessories available to the professional user.
In 1995 the company was purchased by Atlas Copco but was then sold on in 2005. The Milwaukee brand name is now owned by Techtronic Industries, a Hong Kong based company that also oversees AEG and Ryobi power tools.
Every Milwaukee power tool is designed for industrial use.
Each Milwaukee power tool is covered by a 5 year repair, with batteries being covered for 2 years.
