On The Tools Power Tool Supplier Of The Year Winner

‘On the Tools’ describes itself as the largest online construction community in the UK. Construction workers throughout the country nominated their favourite brands and companies for this year’s awards. Next, a panel of judges considered the nominations and narrowed them down to a shortlist of the best companies. The shortlisted companies then went forward to the final stage, with the outcome being decided by votes from the general public.


On the shortlist and competing against Axminster this year were Cromwell Tools, ECA Toolfast, ITS and Toolstop.

We would now like to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone out there who voted for us
