EGO Tools are owned by a company called Chervon – not to be confused with Chevron Energy.

The company is based in Nanjing, China, and is headed up by billionaire CEO Pan Longquan.

Longquan’s official title is Chairman/CEO/Executive Director/Co-Founder, Chervon Holdings Ltd.

Chervon was founded in 1994 and was publicly listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in December 2021.

Due in large part to his holdings in Chervon, 59-year-old Longquan became a billionaire when Chervon went public. In 2023, he had an estimated net worth of US$1.4 billion.

The EGO brand was introduced by Chervon in 2014. EGO Tools wasn’t bought out and brought into the company, as other Chervon brands have been. It was founded by Chervon.

Other Chervon brands include:

  • FLEX – hand tool and angle grinder company, bought by Chervon in 2012
  • SKIL – similar to EGO, another power tool brand, bought off Bosch by Chervon in 2017
  • DEVON – a brand established by Chervon for the Asian power tool market
  • X-TRON – power tools for the Asian construction and home-improvement industries

Chervon also manufactures tools for other brands in their facilities, a process called ODM (Original Design Manufacturer). For example, the Kobalt Tools brand is owned by and sold by Lowes. However, these tools are made by Chervon in their plants.

On their site, Chervon shares this about EGO:

Introduced in 2014, the groundbreaking EGO POWER+ platform is rated #1 in the industry based on power, performance, durability, and value.

All EGO POWER+ products share the unique ARC-Lithium™ Battery and Charger system, allowing for complete interchangeability among all EGO products. Each EGO POWER+ product is designed to provide superior performance to make yard maintenance easier and more enjoyable.

EGO delivers on the promise of “The power and performance of gas/petrol without the noise, fuss and fumes.”

EGO Power Equipment is sold all around the Western world, including the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and Europe. They have offices and distribution centers in these countries.

Where Are EGO Tools Made?

Chervon has production facilities in Nanjing, China, Steinheim, Germany, and Binh Duong, Vietnam.

While it’s unknown what proportion of each brand is made in which facility, EGO tools for the US market are likely made in China.

Their tools are known to go through a rigorous research and development phase, and production is said to be a clean operation too.

EGO has grown into a respected brand with a loyal following in all of the countries it is sold. There are large EGO communities on FB and other platforms where you will find thousands of fans.

  1. Hello!
    I am looking for the person in charge of EGO power tools in the US. So I hope you are the right guy.

    At the beginning of last summer, my leaf blower gave out, and my neighbor lent me his. It was the cordless EGO. OMG, it was wonderful! NO tripping over the cord, no getting the cord tangled. It was so great, I went out and bought one for myself and one for my brother-in-law. My sister (who’s been married to my b-i-l for over 50 years) said, “If that leaf blower learns how to cook, he’s going to divorce me!” Haha!

    By the end of the summer, my lawn mower gave out, so I replaced with the battery operated EGO mower. Where have these tools been my whole life???!!!

    I wish they were a little more affordable. I would replace everything with them. I should tell you that I will be 74 this summer and love doing my own yard work. Your EGO tools have made it possible for me to continue to maintain my property myself. Thank you!

  2. My EGO leaf blower does the job as advertised. Price wise it rates as probably the most expensive, but you get what you pay for. After minimal use the variable speed switch has failed, which falls under the warranty. I have registered the unit as required but am finding EGO ‘s warranty program sucks.
