DeWalt Tool Company was founded by Raymond E DeWalt in 1923. It began its legacy with the introduction of the heavy duty radial arm saw which quickly gained immense popularity. In the 1940′s DeWalt sold their saws in conjunction with American Machine Foundry.
Over the years, DeWalt moved out of the radial arm saw market in the U.S. and shifted its focus on the newly emerging corded power tools and cordless power tools segment. During the past decade, DeWalt has established itself as one of the leading cordless power tool manufacturers with over 30 choices of 18 volt tools alone. DeWalt also manufactures corded tools and an extensive line of miter saws to suit a wide range of needs.
Other product offerings by DeWalt include drills, grinders & polishers, impact wrenches, jointers, planers, routers, sanders, saws, measuring tools, and tool accessories.
