The specialist hand and power tool wholesaler announced, this month, it has been appointed as the exclusive distributor for US brand, ToughBuilt, in the UK and Ireland.

The offer from the Las Vegas-based manufacturer includes saw horses and jobsite tables, mitre saw stands, toolbelts and pouches, toolbags and totes and knee pad.

Toolbank brand manager Joe Manners commented: “The introduction of this new range of high-quality, professional tools and accessories to help save time, hassle and money on-site marks an exciting development for both Toolbank and ToughBuilt in this demanding sector where performance is everything. The partnership between Toolbank and ToughBuilt offers customers a real point of difference in this innovative and fast developing market.”

The full range of ToughBuilt product will be available from February 1 and Toolbank plans to showcase products at its spring tradeshows in March and April.

The new partnership follows news that Toolbank parent company, Dormole, had acquired Dublin-based tools and fixings distributors, Tucks O’Brien Ltd (TOB) and Tucks Fasteners & Fixings Ltd (QFF); stepping up its investment in the Irish market.
