Similarly my drill was made in UK (or at least assembled in Telford) and my impact driver is Japanese (and I have an American-made saw, too). All Makita
Many thanks for the feedback, out of interest I would have a little look to see where stuff is made.....
It isnt easy to know which model is made where as most of the brands have factories in multiple countries.
I get the impression that the newer budget models maybe China built.
Makita: operates factories in Brazil, China,Japan, Mexico, Romania, the United Kingdom, Germany, Dubai, Rwanda and the United States
Dewalt: United States, Mexico, Brazil, China, Italy, United Kingdom, and the Czech Republic
Bosch: Most of their products are made in Malaysia, Mexico, Taiwan, and China but there are still some productsmanufactured in Europe; specifically Germany and Switzerland
Milwaukee are made in various countries, including China where they have a big factory: Techtronic Asia Co., Ltd
