Since 1924, the Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation have been manufacturing heavy-duty power tools. With an emphasis on crafting tools of superior quality, the company is now recognised as a worldwide market leader in the field.
Manufacturer A.H. Petersen was a producer of tools and dies which he supplied to the Ford Motor Company. Towards the end of World War I, Henry Ford personally approached Mr. Petersen with a request for a new product: a lighter, more compact and portable 1/4" capacity power drill. Petersen set to work and soon produced the Hole-Shooter, a drill with a Westinghouse motor that could easily withstand the heavy workload required in the automobile industry. Over the coming years, the Hole-Shooter was improved in many ways and awareness of the company began to spread. This led to new investment opportunities and teams of engineers were soon creating new tools that became the industry standard.
Today, the Milwaukee vision has changed little; the company seeks to produce the best heavy-duty electric power tools that give professional results as standard. The brand is synonymous with products of superior quality that will give many years of hassle-free service. Milwaukee now produce over 500 types of power tool with thousands of accessories, expertly designed to provide the perfect tool for any project.
