Did you know Draper Tools is celebrating 100 years in business this year? Established in 1919 by Bert Draper, we are still family owned and run today by the fourth generation of the Draper family. Even at 100 years old, the company remains as committed to growth and innovation as ever.
History and Heritage
Since 1919 we’ve worked hard to establish a strong reputation for supplying a wide range of hand and power tools for both professional trades and serious enthusiasts. To date, our range includes over 11,000 products lines. While our offering has changed and expanded, our dedication to quality and customer service has remained a constant priority.
Speaking about the centenary year Chairman of Draper Tools, John Draper, commented: “We are proud to have reached this important milestone in our company history and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped us get here. Although we have grown a lot over the last century, we still like to think of ourselves as a no-nonsense, customer-focused tool supplier. Quality and reliability are still very much at the heart of the business and this will continue as we progress and grow into 2019 and beyond.”
We’ve got plenty of exciting plans for a year-long celebration of our 100-year anniversary in 2019, with exclusive promotions, competitions, charity fundraising and a staff party all in the pipeline. Each month there will be special edition centenary products launched at great prices. Keep an eye out for these fantastic deals on top products including trolley jacks, pressure washers, socket sets, spanner sets and more. Don’t miss January’s centenary giveaway of five 2 Tonne Light Duty Trolley Jacks.
Supporting a Good Cause in 2019
To further mark the occasion, we have teamed up with Care for Veterans, a very special charity, which also celebrates its centenary in 2019. Care for Veterans (formerly The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home) was established in 1919 to care for those soldiers returning from World War I with life-changing disabilities. For 100 years, they have been providing long term nursing care, rehabilitation, respite and award-winning end of life care to disabled ex-Servicemen and women from the RAF, Army, Royal Navy and auxiliary services. We will be dedicating 2019 to supporting and raising funds for Care for Veterans in honour of both organisations’ centenary year.
