“The Boss” was the motto Hitachi used in the 1980s. Hitachi is an international conglomerate company where one of its departments included power and hand tools. “The Boss can be bought” is a statement saying that their tools can be bought and to suggest that they were the “boss” of tools at the time. 

Hitachi was found in 1948 and manufactured coal mining machinery and equipment and power tools. They began selling their items in the United States in 1973 and the brand was changed to Metabo HPT in 2018 to give its power and hand tools a new look.
