Toolstation. The story so far.

We’re one of Britain’s fastest growing multi-channel retailers of tools, accessories and building supplies. Backed by Travis Perkins plc, our freedom to operate as a nimble, entrepreneurial business means we’re now well established and have even bigger plans. The trade, home improvers and self-builders all trust us to deliver a lot more than tools. So, our colleagues in our Head Office and Contact Centre in Bridgwater, at our Distribution Centres in Bridgwater, Middleton, Redditch and Daventry, and in our network of over 500 branches throughout the UK, work together to get the job done. And with plans to open another 60 branches this year, we always have opportunities for great retail professionals who want to grow with us.
