Management Policy

President's Message

Since Makita’s founding in 1915, the Company has been devoted to providing products and services desired by its customers while upholding a hands-on approach to management. This tradition has remained unchanged all through the past 107 years. Looking back at the history of Makita, I understand that the Company could not have expanded its business to the present level without the support and cooperation from its customers, business partners, and other stakeholders around the world.
In the hope of growing by solving environmental issues and other social problems, Makita is now using cordless products as an axis to evolve into a supplier of a comprehensive range of cordless products—not only power tools but OPE (outdoor power equipment), cleaning equipment, and outdoor products.
We will use our industry-leading battery charging/discharging technology and motor technology to promote make any and all products cordless (going cordless/engine-less) in order to improve safety, convenience, and comfort, and to contribute to reducing gas emissions, noise, and fuel consumption. We will also continue to improve our services. Taking advantage of the extensive sales and service networks that we have built around the world, we will further reinforce our service system to ensure prompt and stable distribution and repair services, thereby contributing to reducing the burden on both worksites and the global environment while promoting decarbonization.
In the coming years, we will focus our eorts on addressing environmental issues. As part of endeavors to reduce environmental impacts, we will concentrate our eorts on developing cordless OPE that uses no fuels and therefore features zero emissions during operation. Moreover, we have set a goal for FYE 2040 to achieve virtually zero emissions of the greenhouse gases resulting from our business activities that involve the use of electricity and fuels, such as gasoline. While making company-wide eorts to achieve carbon neutrality, Makita will work to remain a company that is indispensable for its customers’ daily lives.
Just as we shifted our business target from motors to power tools, we will keep taking on a variety of new challenges so that we will be able to sustain our business under any kind of business environment. In pursuit of our long-term goal “Strong Company,” we will contribute to realization of a sustainable society through our corporate activities by upholding the following Management Policies: “Makita strives to exist in harmony with society,” “Makita values its customers,” “Makita is managed in a consistent and proactive manner,” and “Valuing a stalwart corporate culture, Makita encourages each individual to perform to his or her highest level.”
