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 professionals and DIY enthusiasts could buy online with a choice of standard or express delivery to the location of their choice.
However, due to the pandemic and Brexit, we have decided to remove our online store and focus on providing homeowners across the UK expert DIY advice instead, leaving the stores to manage customers.
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.
