DEWALT announces the expansion of its initiative to make products in the United States. With this expansion, an additional 60 corded and cordless power tools are being made domestically with global materials. An expansion of production into an existing company-owned plant in Greenfield, Ind., brings the total number of DEWALT plants in the United States to seven, with facilities also in Connecticut, Maryland, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
DEWALT will now produce approximately 14 million products each year in the United States. DEWALT has also created new jobs, adding more than 500 employees to the expanded manufacturing facilities since the campaign began. This brings the total number of employees at U.S.–based DEWALT plants to the thousands. DEWALT is also committed to hiring veterans and currently employs over 1,000 former members of the military in their manufacturing facilities alone.
