Published: Thu Mar 25 2010

Toolbox has announced today the mass expansion of its Cordless Power Tools range on its E-Commerce website, after partnering with Makita.

Makita (UK) Ltd. Is a wholly owned subsidiary of Makita Corporation, based in Anjo City, Japan with a global turnover the equivalent of $1.8 billion. Makita Corporation concentrate exclusively on the manufacture and sale of professional power tools – tools for people who earn their living using them. Naturally, tools of this quality are greatly appreciated by serious hobby users as well.

The E-Commerce retailer now boasts a staggering 31000 products on its website, all at extremely competitive prices and most always in stock for next day delivery. The website team at Toolbox have been very busy over the last few months, with major uploads of products from suppliers such as Silverline and the tools giant Draper.

Scott Morris, E-Commerce Manager of Toolbox Said:

"We have taken a good few days over the Makita product upload on the website to ensure that every product has the correct specifications, picture and grouping on the website. The Makita prices we offer are extremely competitive and we expect the new offerings to literally fly off the shelves. Makita owes its reputation for building outstanding quality power tools to the drive and determination for excellence that began over 90 years ago as a manufacturer of electric motors"

Toolbox not only sell a massive range of Makita kit, but also stocks the biggest brands like DeWalt, Bosch, Draper and Hitachi. Their ever increasing offering ranges from Power Tools – both corded and cordless, to a wide selection of Gardening Equipment, as well as Automotive Tools and Power Tool Accessories and consumables.

Lee Taylor, General Manager of Toolbox Said:

"The Makita new Cordless range is an exciting one for us to launch, there is a product in the range for everyone, from the home DIY’er to the industrial user. The great thing about Makita is they offer their products in so many different guises, 2 batteries, 3 batteries and also naked machines for those users who already have a Makita tool and battery to use, saving them a good chunk of money"

Toolbox is based in Evesham, Worcestershire and now employs 50 staff within their 2,000 sqm, purpose built warehouse and offices. The sister company Plumbworld had a turnover in 2008 in excess of £18 Million. Plumbworld was established in 1999 and was sold to The Grafton Group Plc in December 2006.
