About Al's Tools

Hi I'm Alex, that's me standing on the right. After seven years as a motorcycle mechanic in my home town of Ballymena, I decided to get into the tool business. Having bought Snap-On tools when I was a mechanic I decided to start a Snap-On franchise. I built the franchise up and had two trucks on the road and also featured in one of their franchise success stories they used for marketing. After successfully running the franchise for six years and employing some family members along the way, my dad and my brother in-law, in 2019 I decided to leave the franchise and start up my own tools supply company Al's Tools!

So in 2019 dad retired and I spoke to Alan my brother in-law about my new venture, we set the wheels in motion finding reliable suppliers giving us a wide range of some of the worlds best tools with a lifetime warranty. 


Most of our business is done face to face with our customers from our truck that is set up like a tool showroom, shown on the right.

We cover Co Antrim and further afield driving to our customers providing them with what they need.


Our next venture in 2022 is to bring our range of tools and much more to you via a website. This will allow us to offer you our monthly promotion deals that are not always available on other sites.


We would love to welcome you to the Al's Tools family and look forward to any business we may do!
