About Us

Our Idea

In 2011 John started A1 Tool & Supplies to give trades people a better selection of High-Quality Tools and industrial consumables. Placing excellent customer service at the heart of what we do combined with direct distribution of the worlds best brands gives our customers the widest choice of tools and industrial consumables.

Our Promise

If it breaks, we will fix it. We're here for the long haul.

How it began

John the founder who is a qualified mechanic found it difficult to source high quality specialist tools, thus with this lack of product availability, A1 Tool & Supplies was born.

Originating in Kildare the business grew steadily within the region. As we outgrew the warehouse we relocated to Waterford to a bigger warehouse and from here the service area expanded to all the South East. 

A1 Tools has grown to have two tool trucks servicing the South East of Ireland. In 2021 the warehouse increased once more, and a retail unit was added to increase customer service levels within Waterford City and the surrounding areas.
