part of Stanley Black & Decker, an $11+ billion organisation employing over 30,000 people worldwide. They are also the owner of the world famous Stanley Black & Decker, Facom, Britool Expert and DeWalt brands.

Cliff, Lyndon and Tom have completed their training here in the UK as well as at Mac ‘Tool School’ in Ohio, USA, and were very keen to get on the road. Lyndon, a former Senior Aviation Maintenance Technician, has taken up the territory in Loughton and says:

“I really enjoyed the first few weeks on the road. It was completely different from my previous job in the aviation industry but it has really been a great experience so far.”

Comprehensive training is at the heart of Mac Tools’ success. During their launch and opening weeks, the franchisees receive hands-on support from their Regional Franchise Managers and regular support from a dedicated team of staff at the European Headquarters in Sheffield. Cliff, with 38 years of experience within the construction industry, will be distributing Mac Tools in the Shoreham territory. He is looking forward to the freedom of working independently and found his training really helpful:

“I really enjoyed the training in America as I have never been there before and it was a great place to train. I have also received great ongoing support since I started and have been out with Ed our Regional Franchise Manager a lot, which has been really helpful. It has without a doubt really helped me to have Ed on the other end of line or with me on the road because there are just all these small things that you can’t get out of a book.“

Tom has jumped into to the driver’s seat for the South Glasgow territory. He likes to be on the move and has worked, as well as lived, all over the world in recent years and explains that: “Mac Tools is a great opportunity to become my own boss and run my own business.”

With a potential UK market of over £150 million, Mac Tools is a great franchise for someone with the drive, passion and desire to work for themselves. If you are ready to take the driver’s seat with Mac Tools, please call 08450 6000 60 or email for more information.
