Five new franchise owners have joined the Mac Tools UK franchise network.

The new franchise owners have recently completed their training at the Mac Tools training centre in Ohio, USA and are set to launch their respective franchises.

The new franchise owners are: Kevin Rault, who is based in Jersey; Steven Grant in Salisbury; John Coleman in Mansfield; Jamie Jones in Hereford; and Garry Budd in Mangotsfield.


Coleman has worked in the motor trade for 10 years and has always been a Mac Tools customer. His reason for joining the network stems from his own experience, he said: “I have a huge belief in the product and a massive interest in the motor trade. I’m looking forward to a new challenge and feel that having a vast knowledge will enable me to shine when dealing with my customers.”

Jones was previously a freelance photographer looking for a complete change of career, he said: “I felt that I would be able to undertake a Mac Tools franchise because I had an interest in sports cars and motorcycles, and understand the products being sold having used a number of them myself. I also felt that my people skills from previous jobs would be transferable.”

Mac Tools, which is part of Stanley Black & Decker, sells and distributes a range of professional tools to customers such as car dealerships, automotive repair shops, manufacturing units, and engineering companies.
