The term “made in the USA” or “built in the USA” is a huge motivator for many Americans to buy the product over its foreign made counterpart. These same hardworking Americans feel that it’s important to: reinvest in the American economy, to prevent more money from heading out of the country and instead put that money in the hands of another hardworking American. Now more than ever, the American economy is the most important topic on the average American mind and now more than ever, it’s important to continue building it.
Recently Dewalt has delivered some HUGE news. Since early October, Dewalt has begun the manufacturing of USA built Dewalt tools using global materials in Charlotte, North Carolina. The 75,000 square-foot facility is up and fully running this month (November 2013).
Dewalt is a global power tool brand with American roots (invention of the first radial arm saw) and feels it’s important to have more of its products built by the same Americans who used them on job site day in and day out. Over 600 different hand tools, cordless tools and accessories will be built in the USA with global materials. Of the 600 different tools, it includes Dewalt’s most popular products such as the 20V MAX Lithium Ion Compact Drill/Driver Kit (DCD780C2) and the 20V MAX Lithium Ion ¼” Impact Driver Kit (DCF885C2).
Dewalt also feels there is an opportunity to offer professional users a cordless option that is built right here in the USA with global materials because of the popularity of the 18V and 20V in the US power tool market.
How you can tell if the tool is built in the USA compared to its foreign made counterpart? A Dewalt product that is built in the USA with global materials will feature a special “Built in the USA” logo on the packaging and will also say on the nameplate of the tool along with product specifications.
USA built Dewalt cordless power tools, hand tools and accessories will be available soon.
