Powertool World

This online retailer sells home and garden power tools and accessories from brands such as Bosch and DeWalt. Founder and managing director Chris Guy started out in 1998 selling fittings and fixings to builders. He saw there was a demand for easy access to power tools and launched Powertool World online. Today, the company operates from two large warehouses in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham. It uses automated packaging machines to create, tape, weigh and label each order, eliminating the need for void-fill materials.
