Consolidated Power Tools Celebrates 20 Years as Chicago Pneumatic Distributor
Consolidated Power Tools, based in Cardiff, is celebrating its 20th anniversary as an authorised distributor for international construction equipment manufacturer Chicago Pneumatic.
Consolidated Power Tools was originally established in 1995 by Mark Williams, son of former Chicago Pneumatic employee John Williams. Mark’s father had previously worked for Chicago Pneumatic, starting in 1947 as a drilling contractor and working his way through the company to become sales manager for construction and industrial tools. The Williams' family will celebrate 40 years of distributing Chicago Pneumatic's products next year. In 1976 John began working for a company based in Bridgend, South Wales, one of Chicago Pneumatics first UK distributors, where he was Sales Manager for many years. Following this, John retired from full time work and helped his son to follow in his footsteps by helping him set up Consolidated Power Tools, which has gone onto become one of Chicago Pneumatic’s leading premier distributors.
With over 170 years’ worth of combined experience in the construction industry, Consolidated Power Tools currently employs nine members of staff based at its headquarters in Cardiff, Wales. Offering a range of pneumatic and construction tools across South and West Wales, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Avon. Consolidated Power Tools has access to a wide range of Chicago Pneumatic construction equipment, including pneumatic and hydraulic breakers, picks, rock drills and rotary and chipping hammers. Consolidated Power Tools are also a distributor of Chicago Pneumatic’s range of industrial and vehicle service tools, as well as certified warranty repair agents for the complete range of Chicago Pneumatic products.
“Our distributor network is incredibly important to us throughout the business” says Colin Frost, UK Business Development Manager at Chicago Pneumatic. “We are very pleased to have been with Consolidated Power Tools since the beginning and thanked John Williams for his many years of service, both as an employee and as a valued distributor. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the next generation.”
