The Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation is an American company that develops, manufactures, and markets power tools. It is a brand and subsidiary of Techtronic Industries, a Hong Kong-based company, along with AEG, Ryobi, Hoover, Dirt Devil, and Vax. It produces corded and cordless power tools, hand tools, pliers, hand saws, cutters, screwdrivers, trims, knives, and tool combo kits. It is since 2016 the biggest supplier of cordless power tools in North America, coming close with Bosch in second place, and Stanley Black and Decker at third place.

In 1918, Milwaukee Tool introduced “the first lightweight portable, one-handed 1/4” capacity drill – the “Hole-Shooter”. The shooter was far more lightweight than comparable models weighing in at just five pounds.
