Home Vendor News DeWALT Expands Initiative to Make Products in the USA

DeWALT, a leading manufacturer of industrial power tools, hand tools, and accessories, announces the expansion of its initiative to make products in the USA. With this expansion, an additional 60 corded and cordless power tools are being made domestically with global materials. An expansion of production into an existing company-owned plant in Greenfield, Indiana brings the total number of DEWALT plants in the United States to seven, with facilities in Connecticut, Maryland, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee, making some of the brand’s most popular tools.
DEWALT will now produce approximately 14 million products each year in the United States. Given a choice between a product made in the United States and an identical one made abroad, 78 percent of Americans would rather buy the American product, according to a 2013 survey by the Consumer Reports National Research Center.
In addition to the efficiency that domestic expansion provides, DEWALT has also created new jobs for Americans across the country, adding over 500 employees to the expanded manufacturing facilities since the campaign began. This brings the total number of employees at US-based DEWALT plants to the thousands. DEWALT is also committed to hiring veterans and currently employs over 1,000 former members of the military in their manufacturing facilities alone.
“We continue to grow our domestic capabilities because the professional using our tools wants to buy products made in the USA. DEWALT is making the power tools for the contractors and builders who are themselves building America,” said Frank Mannarino, President of DeWALT Professional Products Group. “Whether it’s through our high quality tools made in the USA with global materials, convenient  service repair centers, or products backed by extensive warranties, the DEWALT professional end user can expect premium power tools that are made and serviced by fellow Americans – some of whom are veterans – right here in the United States.”
With the added products, facilities, and a continued commitment to expanding domestic manufacturing, DeWALT is able to deliver products with greater efficiency, without adding cost, while keeping the same Guaranteed Tough® quality customers have come to know and expect from the brand.
“Perhaps most impressive is DEWALT’s aggressive program to assert itself as a truly American premier brand. We laud the effort and trust it is a sign of more good things to come,” said Contractor Supply’s Tom Hammel.
