Skil Power Tools were founded in 1924. They are now one of the most recognised and powerful brands in the power tool industry today.
SKIL Innovation Through The Years
Skil starting in 1924 when the first Model E portable electric handsaw was invented by Edmond Michel. Edmond was a co-founder of what later became known as the SKIL Corporation.
Another milestone was the introduction of the Model 77 Skilsaw in 1937. The Skilsaw quickly became the benchmark of portable electric circular saws. Even today all other electric circular saws are measured against the Skilsaw.
Since then SKIL have become one of the most recognised and powerful brands in the power tool industry. From circular saws and jig saws to sanders and drills, SKIL power tools are engineered to deliver. High-performance and durability is exactly what today’s growing population of DIY’ers demand.
The SKIL product line has grown, and now features more than 100 power tools. Skil Power Tools are based on extensive research, customer input and rigorous testing.
