About Us

Tool Venture began selling online in 2007 with a selection of high quality hand tools, tile cutters, tool storage and safety and protection products from manufacturers in Europe and the USA. These professional brands were not always available through normal retail channels in the UK and were expensive for individuals to ship over from the States. Realising this we created and launched the Tool Venture website where trade professional and DIY enthusiasts can buy online with a choice of standard or next working day delivery to the location of their choice.

Our company’s history goes back to 1993 when Astra Limited was formed. Astra Limited continues to distribute a range of specialist hand tools, tile cutters, PPE and tool storage products to tool merchants across the UK and Europe. The Tool Venture brand is the online trading name for Astra Limited.

Tool Venture’s range of products now runs into many thousands and includes hand tools, tile cutters, safety and protection products and tool storage brands from Europe and the USA. Most products are kept in stock and we offer both standard deliveries via Royal Mail as well as next working day courier delivery. Our buying power allows us to source from all over the world at the most competitive prices and pass those discounts directly onto you.

Products and price are only half the story though with service being of equal importance to us. Our friendly, professional customer service team are available during office hours should you prefer to place your order by phone, need some impartial advice, technical support or check your order status. We’re also aware that your order is not complete until it has been delivered safely into your hands. That's why we offer a choice of delivery options via standard Royal Mail or next working day courier to suit you. If you have chosen a next working day delivery option then parcel tracking information will be available for your order.

With over 20 years global sourcing experience we are committed to bringing you the highest quality products from around the globe backed with the highest quality service and support. We hope you like our product range and the improvements we are continually striving to make to our site.
