Success Nailed Down

Mac Tools celebrates the recruitment of three new franchise owners from very different backgrounds.

New Chesterfield recruit, Mark Willgoose, recently joined the expanding tool specialists after taking the decision to change his career as a Sales Manager, when he became a father. He said: “The Mac Tools package is a great opportunity to earn a good living. My favourite moment so far was my first day out by myself, making sure that everything I had learned came into practice.”

But Mark’s circumstances could not have been more different to new Stroud franchise owner, Chris Wood, who had worked as a Field Service Technician for years before making his investment in an industry he was familiar with. Chris said: “I have always wanted my own business, so I can be responsible for my own destiny and success. As a mechanic, I always used the Mac Tools brand, so I believe in the product I’m selling 100 per cent.”

Chris and Mark were trained, at the head office in Sheffield, alongside third new franchise owner – Andy Flynn. Andy spent 22 years in the Armed Forces before looking to Mac Tools to provide him with a new career adventure. He said: “I had just finished a 22-year career and I was looking for a challenging career for another 22 years. I went to the National Franchise Exhibition in Birmingham last October and came across the Mac Tools franchise. I had worked with their tools in workshops before, but I wasn’t aware of their franchise opportunity. But it immediately appealed to me. It really fitted my profile and I knew the products were great. It was like starting a new era when I picked up my van last week. I am out on the road at the start of something new and exciting.”

The exciting announcement of these three new franchise owners is a direct reflection of Mac Tools continued success - the business has recently achieved 25 per cent year-on-year growth in the tool provision market and is looking to recruit more franchise owners to further its popular brand.
