Mac Tools is part of Stanley Black & Decker, a £7 billion global organisation employing over 30,000 people worldwide and owner of the worldwide and owner of the world famous brand such as DeWALT, Facom and Britool Expert. The last three years Mac Tools have achieved 25 per cent year-on-year growth in what is considered to be a flat market.
Davis, Mac Tools commented: “The initial training was very informative and has really increased my confidence in my abilities to run my own business. The ongoing support has also been very good. My business development manager is really helpful, he comes out on the road with me and we get along really well."
Mac Tools franchisees are the trusted tool specialists. The Mac Tools line consists of over 18,000 professional tools and this is what appealed to James McCue and James McDurdo and was key to their decision. McCue explains: “I noticed the Mac Tools van out on the road and so I approached the franchisee, John Booth, who told me about everything that was involved. I am good at sales and passionate about tools, so it is the perfect franchise for me.”
McMurdo added: “I was made redundant from my last job and so I applied for a variety of jobs but also looked into running my own business. When I found out about Mac Tools and learned more about the business model, I knew that’s what I wanted to do. I know that with the backing of Mac Tools and a lot of hard work I will be successful.”
