Draper Tools hits a century


BIRA DIRECT SUPPLIER Draper Tools is celebrating 100 years in business this year. Established in 1919 by Bert Draper, the business is still family-owned, run today by the fourth generation.

With a well-established reputation for supplying hand and power tools for both professional tradesmen and serious enthusiasts, Draper Tools offers more than 11,000 product lines. Since 1919, its dedication to quality and customer service has remained a constant priority.
Chairman John Draper commented: “We are proud to have reached this important milestone in our company history and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped us get here. Although we have grown a lot over the last century, we still like to think of ourselves as a no-nonsense, customer-focused tool supplier. Quality and reliability are still very much at the heart of the business and this will continue as we progress and grow into 2019 and beyond.”

Exclusive promotions, competitions, charity fundraising and a staff party are all planned for the year-long celebration. Each month there will be special-edition centenary products launched at great prices. Stockists should keep an eye out for fantastic deals on top products including trolley jacks, pressure washers, socket sets, spanner sets and more.

To further mark the anniversary, Draper Tools will be dedicating 2019 to supporting and raising funds for Care for Veterans (formerly The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home), which also was established in 1919 to care for injured soldiers returning from World War I.

Draper Tools offers one of the most complete programmes of hand and power tools available from one source. Draper Tools sells products in almost all major categories including DIY, gardening, automotive, hobby, leisure and other non tool lines. Bira members can get exclusive buying terms when buying through Bira Direct.
