The "Ridgid" brand is somewhat funny, IMO. First, I think we have to understand that whether it is Ryobi, Ridgid, or Milwaukee... the profit goes to the parent company and the marketing/retailer. TTI is the parent company and Home Depot is the exclusive retailer for Ryobi and Ridgid.
So, it probably doesn't make a big difference to TTI whether a particular tool gets manufactured under the "Ridgid" brand name. If they have a tool under Ryobi or Milwaukee, then they have market penetration for that particular tool. AND, they don't have to be concerned with the burden of the LLSA.
We also have to remember that Home Depot sets the "market"... if they don't want a particular model or tool type, then TTI isn't going to make it under the Ridgid name. We have no idea of the politics that influences Home Depot management and what brands and tools of particular type Home Depot wants to carry. It may well be a deal with other companies.... there are always "backroom" deals going on with what other brands may want or not want and I'm sure there is some influence there. Home Depot has to balance their limited shelf space and keep all the manufacturer's happy in the process.
So, don't think for a moment that a "cordless" jig saw under the Ridgid brand name is a simple matter of someone at Ridgid just deciding they need to be in that segment... there's a lot more in play.
