Draper Tools

Draper tools


Draper Tools was started in 1919 when the founder, Bert Draper, sold government surplus and tools in markets around the Kingston Upon Thames area.

When Bert passed away in 1963, control of the Company passed to his son Norman, who established 'exclusive' relationships on a family to family basis, with such Companies as Elora and Knipex, which still exist today.

Norman died in 1994 and the Company is now run by his son, John. He took over the reins in 1992 with the task of taking the company into the new century. Draper Tools continues to thrive on a mixture of inward investment, active support for the independent stockist, striving for operational efficiency and all underpinned by the golden rule since 1919 - Guaranteed Quality.

The current premises in Chandler's Ford have been added to considerably since its purchase and has now reached a size of 535,000 sq.ft. It is now probably the largest stock of tools in one place in the UK.

P.E.T. Hire have stocked Draper for many years because we are impressed with the quality of the products. Not only do we stock the hand tools, but carry items such as Petrol Pressure Washers, Mig Welders & Compressors
