OK, I know this is old information, but this is a well done video of who owns and manufactures what tools. There is some interesting info buried in the video, also.

 

Do you know, that, there are two different Rigid tool lines; Orange colored and Red colored? The red ones are the true Rigid brand and geared towards the commercial end and the orange colored ones are manufactured, under license to Rigid, by several different companies. The video, also, touches on where the tool brands are based, what their annual tool sales, in dollars, is, and how many people they employ

 

Anyway, enjoy...

So it seems most tool companies today are owned by folks who have little or no tool knowledge..,aka Large Equity or Hedge Fund groups. Interesting Makita still stands alone and does quite well among the giants.

 

Didn't see who made this tool line...I have several of them.

Interesting to watch. I don't recognize all of the brands talked about, so it would be interesting to know who makes some of the tools available down under.

Apart from the obvious..... we know who makes those
