2016 has been a hugely successful year for TradeTools, easily our best ever in fact, just as we hope it has been for many of you, our loyal customers..
Much of our focus this year has been on how we can better serve you, on how we can provide increasingly higher quality products and how we can continue to offer additional value to how you work and do business. The introduction of our Very Important Tradie VIT program is just one example of how you have told us we are helping you, with tens of thousands of tradies and business’s signing up to the program and enjoying its benefits since it was launched in August this year.
During the year, TradeTools offered support to local organisations, causes and charities who’s work benefits the communities we all live in and share. A donation of workshop tools and our ongoing support helps Orange Sky Laundry to continue their work assisting and improving the lives of Australian’s who do it tough on the streets of Brisbane and elsewhere across the country.
Next year marks the 30th year we have been proudly serving Queensland. Our steady, self-funded growth has stood the tests of time where too many other good business have expanded too fast, un-sustainably and ultimately have failed or fallen by the wayside. We’ve come a long way since we opened the doors of our first store in Capalaba back in 1987 to now have 16 huge tool stores across Queensland and Northern New South Wales and I’m proud to say we will open our newest store in Labrador on the Gold Coast in early 2017, and we have more stores planned for next year and beyond.
Of course, none of this means much without the continued support and loyalty afforded by the tradespeople, apprentices, businesses, professionals and everyday people from all over who appreciate top quality tools. In 2017, we will do our very best to serve you better, with a keen focus on the service, range, price and advice that has allowed us to become, & hopefully remain, Queensland’s preferred tool specialist.
On behalf of all of us here at TradeTools, thank you for buying your tools & equipment from us all through 2016.
We Wish You All A Very Merry & Safe Christmas Together With A Happy New Year.
