In 1953, our founder, Laurie Stanton Hope diversified his small contracting business to include the supply and maintenance of specialist tools and equipment. Although the contracting side of the business has been discontinued long since, the tools and equipment side goes from strength to strength. Today, we are one of Britain's leading suppliers of forestry equipment.
With our wealth of experience in this market, we are able to source an increasingly wide and varied range of items to suit modern needs. We continue to specialise in the supply of goods direct to professional users throughout the U.K. and overseas, so, whatever your need, from protective clothing and chainsaws to tree shelters and guards, from hand tools to sprayers, marking paint and measuring instruments, try us - we're here to help.
