Draper Tools are delighted to have come away with not one – but TWO awards at the recent Workshop Power Awards event. Winning “Hand Tool Supplier of the Year” is a huge feather in our cap – and we are extremely proud to have also picked up a Highly Commended award for our power tool range.
“Draper enjoyed a successful evening at the inaugural Workshop Power Awards, coming away with two awards.
The company’s power tool range saw Draper picking up a Highly Commended prize, while in the Hand Tool Supplier of the Year category, the company scored an overall win.
If you follow Workshop Magazine’s product testing pages every month, Draper’s high positions in the award categories won’t come as much of a surprise to you.
Whenever we test Draper products – whether it’s hand tools, power tools or protective gear and consumables – we find they usually merit a Recommended or Best Buy rating. Our panel of professional experts often concurs, giving high rankings to Draper products whatever the type.
Nevertheless, our product tests can only go so far. While we assess the equipment as objectively as we can over a short period of time, the Power Awards represent a much more in-depth assessment. As these are opinions gathered from the trade, the Power Awards may include aspects such as the longer-term reliability of the products and their longevity, but more importantly the company itself as a supplier. This could cover customer relations, product support and speed of service, for example, and represents a broader opinion of the brand than a lab-based product assessment.
With the Power Awards nominations coming anonymously from workshops, technicians and colleagues within the industry itself, picking up the two trophies should be considered as a validation and ringing endorsement of the motor industry’s perception of the Draper brand for quality of equipment and standard of service.”
