Axminster Tools and Machinery, the town’s biggest employer, has been named the nation’s ‘Power Tool Supplier of the Year’.

The awards are organised by ‘On the Tools’ – reputed to be the largest online construction community in the UK.

Construction workers throughout the country nominated their favourite brands and companies for this year’s awards. A panel of judges then considered the nominations and narrowed them down to a shortlist.

In its category, AT&M was competing against Screwfix, Toolstop and ITS. The four shortlisted companies went to the final stage, with the outcome being decided by votes from the public.

Brands director Martin Brown said: “We are delighted to receive this award, especially as it is voted for by our customers, on one of the most popular independent social media outlets for the building trade.”
