Power Equipment Direct Launches ECHO

PED Expands Outdoor Power Equipment

BOLINGBROOK, IL (May 13, 2020) - Power Equipment Direct is proud to announce its new partnership with ECHO, one of the best manufacturers of consumer handheld power equipment for outdoor use.

At launch, Power Equipment Direct will be offering best-selling items from ECHO’s three most popular product categories: string trimmers, leaf blowers, and chainsaws.

With ECHO products in its lineup, Power Equipment Direct is now able to provide customers with a wider selection of lawn, garden, and landscaping tools just in time for summer.

“I am thrilled to partner with ECHO, whose dependable, high-quality products have, as their name suggests, echoed throughout the market for more than 40 years!” says Jasmina Milankovic, Category Manager at Power Equipment Direct. “With their strong foothold in the handheld power equipment industry, I am ecstatic to provide solutions and meet the needs of existing and new Power Equipment Direct customers.”

ECHO was established in Northbrook, Illinois, in 1972 as the Kioritz Company of America, an importer of handheld power tools from Japan. In 1978, the company changed its name to ECHO. The following year, it began designing and manufacturing its own handheld lawn and garden equipment.

Since the debut of its first product for the U.S. market, a curved shaft string trimmer, ECHO has not only broadened its line of handheld tools but also developed its expertise. Today ECHO is known for making high-end, commercial-grade equipment for professional foresters and landscapers as well as for homeowners and consumers.

Power Equipment Direct was founded in 2002 as an online retailer with a central mission, "To make buying technical products simple." With its large selection of power equipment and HVAC products, its specially trained product experts, and its U.S.-based customer support team, Power Equipment Direct aims to provide a streamlined shopping experience.
