Thanet Tool Supplies continue to be proud of our genuine "Bricks & Mortar" heritage where every customer is offered a genuine welcome from our incredibly knowledgeable team.
We continue to have one simple aim, provide you with the answer that you want as well as offering you what usually can't be found anywhere else - it's what we're good at!

Our Ashford Trade & DIY store has over 9,000 items in stock, to touch and feel. A majority of which are not featured on our website!
As we continue to grow the e-commerce side of our company, more and more products will become available online and of course in-store (footprint permitting). 

We have just recently opened our brand new e-commerce warehouse facility in Leicester and now have a direct transport link to our Ashford Trade & DIY store twice a week, so if something is only an e-commerce product and you want to see it and purchase it in-store, we can now do this!
