Description

Wokingham Tools is a family run business owned by Keith and Elaine Gibling. Wokingham Tools has been trading since 1975. We started life as an office in Wokingham just outside Reading in Berkshire selling a small amount of hand and power tools direct to the trade.
After a year it was very obvious Wokingham Tools needed bigger premises so we acquired a shop just outside Reading town centre where we are today. Wokingham Tools has had to keep on expanding building a bigger and better name for ourselves with a reputation for quality and service to match.
As before Wokingham Tools kept on getting bigger and better so we bought the shop next door, with a few extensions here and there we are now expanding onto the internet.
