Hitachi Power Tools rebrands in North America

BRASELTON, Ga. — Hitachi Power Tools last month began the conversion of its tool lines in North America to the Metabo brand. The transition, announced in the spring, began with the company’s MultiVolt cordless tools. The rest of its lines are to be converted to the new brand in the new year, but parent company KKR is keeping the HPT and Metabo companies as separate entities.
