Notice of Production Discontinuation of Engine Products

Makita Corporation (hereinafter referred to as “Makita”) will discontinue the production of engine products on March 31, 2022.

I. Reasons for Discontinuation:
Makita is a global supplier of a comprehensive range of tools for creating comfortable homes and living environments, including cordless power tools, battery-operated outdoor power equipment and pneumatic tools. In the field of outdoor power equipment, Makita is dedicated to supplying a broad range of engine products such as brush cutters and chainsaws. However, in response to the heightened awareness of global environmental issues and increasing needs for highly convenient, cordless products, Makita has recently been enhancing development, production, and sales of cordless products that are environment-friendly and will gain popularity.

Makita now plans to focus management resources on development, production, and sales of cordless products while leveraging its motor and superior battery quality with latest charging/discharging technology. This will help Makita to accelerate the departure from engine products and the application of cordless solutions to power tools and outdoor power equipment.

Accordingly, Makita will discontinue the production of engine products at the entire group level.

II. Date of Discontinuation
March 31, 2022
