Who makes Ryobi and Homolite?

Just curious as to who now makes Ryobi and Homolite stuff. I know Ryobi is no longer owned by MTD, and I heard a rumor that Homolite and Ryobi are the same? Can anyone tell me who owns/manufactures both of them?

Techtronic Industries make Ryobi power tools. They also make Ryobi and Homelite outdoor power equipment. In addition, they also make Ryobi and Ridgid products sold exclusively at Home Depot.

Just to clarify, the Ryobi and Ridgid tools by Techtronic Industries sold at Home Depot are the woodworking tools. All the other Ridgid tools (compressors, shop vacs......) are still owned and manufactured by Ridgid/Emerson.
