Hitachi Power Tools

Hitachi Power Tools today announced a name change from Hitachi Power Tools to Metabo HPT for its full line of power tools, fasteners, accessories and outdoor power equipment products for North America. The transition will start from September 2018 with the launch of MultiVolt, while the majority of products will changeover after December 2018.

“The legacy of our brand has been built over many decades and will exceed all expectations as our name changes to Metabo HPT,” said Joe Leffler, Sr. Vice President of Sales, Marketing, General Management & Board Member, Hitachi Power Tools. “Nothing will change about our brand except the name.”

Products will retain current brand identity: same color, same model numbers, same warranties and the same battery interchangeability. They will be made by the same people, in the same factories, with the same specifications and focus on innovation that customers have come to expect.

All products will continue to be covered and supported by the same industry-leading warranties and service. Hitachi Power Tools products will be interchangeable with  Metabo HPT products, and Metabo HPT products will be interchangeable with Hitachi Power Tool products.

Metabo HPT packaging and signage at the point of sale during the transition will feature both names and logos to clearly communicate the changeover from Hitachi Power Tools. At a glance, customers will easily understand that this is the same brand just under the new name, Metabo HPT.
