Be Your Own Boss, Drive Your Future

Mac Tools is part of Stanley Black & Decker, the world’s largest hand and power tool manufacturer, a $12 billion global organisation. Our franchisees are trusted distributors of what we consider to be the best quality tools on the market to customers such as car dealerships, automotive repair shops, manufacturing units and engineering companies.

As a Mac Tools franchisee you will run your own business with our back-up and support. We’re offering you the chance to enjoy work and be the master of your own destiny.

Introduced to the UK in 1990, Mac Tools quickly became the number one choice for professionals all over the country. We now have over 170 franchisees operating in a UK market worth £150 million. Over the last three years, Mac Tools as a franchise network have achieved 25% year-on-year growth in what is considered to be a flat market.

“When I joined Mac Tools, I wanted the backing of a larger company without the risk of starting from scratch. There’s more strength in the business when you’re part of a large brand,” Gary Teasdale, Mac Tools Cumbria.

Training you to Take the Wheel

We are dedicated to ensuring that you have everything you need to set you on the road to success. Our comprehensive TLC training programme will help you to hit the ground running from day one:

  • Training – 2 weeks initial training based at our UK headquarters
  • Launch -  the following 2 weeks to launch and establish your business within the territory
  • Coaching – your 12-month coaching programme

Our initial training covers all elements of the business to make sure you get off to a flying start when you set off on the road. The training programme provides you with all the skills you need in:

  • The Mac Way
  • Product knowledge
  • Business knowledge
  • Personalised operating system
  • Selling and collecting confidently
  • And much more…

“My training was excellent, thorough and extremely rewarding. Every step of the process contributed to me thinking that I’d made the right move. Everything was positive and I came away feeling that I had the information I needed to get started,” Neil Whitford, Mac Tools Skipton.



Financing Your Future

We offer two options to help you finance your Mac Tools franchise:

  • With £15,000 liquid capital and a £35,000 bank loan you will receive our highest trading terms
  • With £5,000 liquid capital and a £10,000 bank loan, Mac Tools will provide the remaining finance and you will receive our lower trading terms

Although sales and business experience will give you a good head start and a good basic knowledge of mechanic’s tools will help, don’t rule yourself out if none of that applies to you! We have seen many franchisees with no previous automotive technical experience succeed because they had the right attitude and the will to succeed through their own hard work.

“Mac Tools gives you the flexibility to run your own business. You’re not dictated to about how you run the business as long as you stick to the model. It’s your own business but you have the Mac Tools brand on the side of your van,” Anthony Halsey, Mac Tools Paignton.
