The Positec Tool Corporation was founded in Suzhou, China, in 1994 by Don Gao. It primarily sold OEM tools to established brands like Black & Decker. In the early 2000s, Gao decided to branch out by manufacturing tools and lawn care accessories under his own brand name.

Does Stanley own Mac Tools?

Stanley also owns MAC Tools and manufactures MAC tools in the same plants. Now here's the kicker: MAC Tools, Proto Tools (a very expensive industrial brand), Husky Tools, and, (prior to five or so years ago) Craftsman Tools are all made from the same forgings in the same plants.

Which is better DeWalt or Makita?

From experience, DeWalt's 20-volt drill has a bit more torque than the Makita, although the difference is rather negligible. The DeWalt is also a fair bit heavier/bulkier - with its 3-speed transmission and big 20-volt battery - than the leaner/slimmer 2-speed Makita.
