As 2013 draws in, Mac Tools are laying the foundations for a successful 2014 already. Mac Tools are proud to welcome four new Mac men to the team this month. Alan Myers Jow, Stephen Hindmarch, Daniel Briggs-Price and Andrew Goodall have all set out on the road in their brand new Mac Tools vans.
Mac Tools is part of Stanley Black & Decker, a £7+ billion global organisation employing over 30,000 people worldwide and owner of the world famous brands such as DeWALT, Facom and Britool Expert. Over the last three years Mac Tools have achieved 25% year-on-year growth in what is considered to be a flat market.
“I was feeling a bit dismayed with the role I was in previously and I wanted to work for myself and do something slightly different whilst still remaining in the motor trade, something I enjoy being part of. I looked around at a few options, including Mac Tools’ competitors, but I liked the whole set up and the way they run things at Mac. The enthusiasm of the management team really shines through. The support I have received from my Regional Franchise Manager since my launch has been very good,” explains Stephen.
Mac Tools franchisees are the trusted tool specialists for the professional technician at car dealerships, automotive repair shops, manufacturing units, and engineering companies. The brand is well-known in the automotive world and has quite often already made an impression on prospective franchisees and forms part of the reason of why they decide to invest with Mac Tools.
“I had been looking into franchising for quite a while before I chose Mac Tools, but I had used Mac Tools as a customer whilst I was working as a mechanic and I had been impressed with their service. It was a brand I was already familiar with and so it made perfect sense to invest in one of their franchises. Their new franchise package made it much easier for me to invest so it just made sense to go with them,” says Alan.
Training and support are key to the Mac Tools success. Their new development and training programme in Sheffield ensures that not only Mac Tools’ franchisees but also their support staff at the Mac Tools headquarters in Sheffield, receive continuous training that allows them to fully utilise their skills-sets.
“The training programme was excellent and I loved every minute of it! I enjoyed the training so much, I’d do it again tomorrow if I was given the chance. The excellent support has also continued now that I have launched my business. There’s always someone on the end of the phone if I ever need anything,” says Daniel.
“I became a Mac Tools franchisee because I wanted to enable myself to grow as a person and to achieve a better family life. I wanted to run my own business and the training and support from Mac Tools has allowed me to do so under the support of a great team of people who know exactly what they are doing,” adds Andrew.
