In March 1915, Mosaburo Makita founded Makita Electric Works (proprietorship) in Nagoya, Aichi, Japan. He began selling and repairing lighting equipment, motors, and transformers. In April 1969, the company introduced the 6500D battery-powered drill, known as the first rechargeable power tool.
In December 1978, they launched the 6010D rechargeable drill, which is the first nickel cadmium battery tool. While in August 1997, the first nickel hydride battery tool called the 6213D rechargeable driver-drill was exhibited at the Chicago Hardware Show. On the other hand, the TD130D, the first lithium-ion battery tool was made available in February 2005. Makita ships many of its power tools in Systainer-compatible stacking boxes. In 2011 Makita registered a design for its own "Makpac" variant in the names of Yuji Yamamot and Kiyozumi Kokawa.
