DeWalt bought the German ELU company some years ago and several current DeWalt models are bean counter 'improved' versions of the original ELU models.
Triton have been bought up by some financial operation and are gradually getting back into the game. Their products have generally had a good name, marred only by uncertainty about spares availability during certain periods. Interestingly, the smaller Triton router is also offered by CMT, whose reputation is excellent and who wouldn't have adopted it and offered it under their own name if there was anything wrong with it.
I agree, Peter.
The original Triton was an Australian company, owned by GMC Worldwide Pty Ltd that went into bankruptcy and was bough out by a Swiss firm.
The trade marks, patents etc were sold to a swiss company, who are probably selling the Triton (re-badged) to CMT.
The spare parts stock and all patents, intellectual property has been bought by a Swiss company, Powerbox AG.
From other forums, the Trition TRC001 and the smaller Triton are back on the market in the US.
The TRC001 now has the through-table-height adjuster similar to the smaller one.
I do know that new stock of CMT AND Triton routers have appeared in Europe and the US.
The Triton products are well designed and engineered. They are made in a ISO rated factory in Taiwan.
Now the Swiss firm has re-entered the market, I doubt there will be any problem with spare parts, warranty etc.
