Our Heritage

Derby Industrial Power Tools was founded in 1973 by the current chairman and his wife, working from their home in Derby. 18 months later, Derby Industrial Power Tools moved into its first premises in Canal Street, Derby and took on its first employee. The company continued to expand in 1975 with dedicated sales personnel to deliver the company's Best Value No Messin' proposition.

A year later, Derby Industrial Power Tools set up their first workshop to ensure an excellent after sales service was consistently delivered, and the business started to operate beyond the confines of Derbyshire.

Over time Derby Industrial Power Tools was shortened to DIPT and the range was expanded to provide specialist products to our target markets. 

In 1979, DIPT moved to a 5,000 sq. ft industrial unit on Siddals Road, Derby which remained our head office until 1996.

In August 1996 work began on the first building on Pride Park, Derby. This one million pound investment brought about our fully barcoded, state of the art distribution and sales centre. By the end of the year DIPT had moved in and had become fully operational.

A restructure in 2006 saw the birth of Metal Fabrication Supplies to give us a greater segment focus.

We are now on Ascot Drive, Derby and the group employs around 70 people. We remain financially strong and continue to invest in our systems, processes and people.
