Introducing Draper Tools Posted by Chris Broughton , Posted on 09/04/2014

If you’ve been involved in a construction project, done some DIY or even been to a hardware store at any time in the past nine decades, then you’re probably already familiar with Draper Tools.


Formed in 1919 by Bert Draper in Kingston-upon-Thames, the business moved to Chandler’s Ford in Hampshire in 1963 under the management of Bert’s son Norman. Norman’s son John took over the running of the company in 1994, keeping it a family run business in an age of big corporations and conglomerates.


It’s these family values and emphasis on getting the balance right between quality and price that has kept Draper Tools a household name for the best part of a century.                                                                                                                                                                                     





Today, Draper Tools offer one of the market’s most diverse ranges of tools for construction, automotive work, bikes, gardens and more. Draper’s products include gloves, hats, protective clothing and pretty much everything else you could need when taking on any job big or small.
