DeWalt has a storied history of being one of the top power tool manufacturers in the country ever since 1923, when Raymond E. DeWalt invented the radial arm saw (he later incorporated in 1947 as DeWalt, Inc.). They were bought by Black & Decker in 1960, who remains their parent company today. Porter-Cable is also part of the family, who they bought in 2004. They currently manufacture over 200 power tool varieties and over 800 accessories – but are their products made in the USA? We did the digging to find out.
Verdict: Are DeWalt Tools Made in the USA?
No, not all DeWalt tools are made in the USA. However, they have a select line of products that are assembled in the USA from international materials. These American assembled tools are made across 7 different U.S. facilities, listed below.
- Charlotte, NC
- Cheraw, SC
- Greenfield, IN
- Hampstead, MD
- Jackson, TN
- New Britain, CT
- Shelbyville, KY
The international materials they use come from a variety of locations, including: Brazil, the United Kingdom, Italy, the Czech Republic, Mexico, China, and some parts from the U.S.
You can find these American assembled DeWalt products on their website. Each of the products have a “Made in the USA from Global Materials” label on them.
We have to say, this is pretty disappointing coming from DeWalt, a long renowned American tool manufacturer. However, international manufacturing is a trend that continues in the power tools industry, so it’s at least nice to see that DeWalt is supporting the American economy by assembling a large number of their tools and accessories here.
