Skil is a subsidiary of Chervon (HK) Ltd., a Chinese tool manufacturer also known for the Ego, Devon, and Flex brands of power tools. In 1996, the Skil power tool brand, which had existed in some form since the 1920s, was acquired by Robert Bosch GmbH, the same company that owns and created the Bosch tool brand. This would expand Skil’s product offerings well into the 2000s, when in 2017, Skil would be acquired by Chervon.
Founded in Nanjing, China, in 1994, Chervon would have a joint venture with Bosch in 2007 before acquiring FLEX, a German brand, in 2013. The Chinese tool manufacturer then acquired both the Skil and Skilsaw brands a few years later.
Today, Chervon runs two manufacturing bases in China where the company performs tooling, manufacturing, assembly, and more for their various lines of power tools, though they have facilities internationally.
