Metabo to Merge HPT and Power Tool Brands

Both brands will operate their headquarters, factory service center and distribution functions from Braselton, GA.

Koki Holdings America Ltd. announced last week the merger of its Metabo HPT and Metabo Power Tools brands in North America. Starting in December 2022, both brands will operate their headquarters, factory service center and distribution functions from a single state-of-the-art facility in Braselton, Georgia, just northeast of Atlanta.

“By integrating operations, both brands will continue to support retailers and end users with world-class power tools for the residential/multifamily construction market and the metal working/industrial markets,” Koki Holdings said in a press release. “This unification will enhance value across the organization, driving new business opportunities for existing Metabo HPT and Metabo customers.”

Metabo HPT — which rebranded from Hitachi Power Tools when parent company Hitachi Koki became Koki Holdings — manufactures professional-grade power tools and accessories for woodworking, metalworking, drilling and fastening, concrete drilling and cutting. Metabo HPT also makes pneumatic nailers, staplers and compressors.

Metabo Power Tools manufactures corded and cordless power tools, as well as abrasives, accessories and other tools used for metalworking, concrete and other industrial and construction applications. Metabo’s tools are engineered in Germany.

Koki Holdings, formerly Hitachi Koki, is based in Japan and has been manufacturing air and power tools for over 70 years.
