Being a responsible business is central to the Craftsman Tools Ltd ethos, dating right back to the beginning of the company in 1953. As a long term sustainable business we deliver value to all our stakeholders: our clients, employees, partners and the wider community, incorporating ethical initiatives into the core of our business structure.
We contribute to the local community, economy and education with our own award winning apprentice school. We continue to invest in the next generation of skilled workers from the local area by offering our apprentices a high quality training programme.
Craftsman Tools is continuously involved in government, business and local community initiatives; from being a nominated representative for the All-Party Parliamentary Manufacturing Group’s ‘Exported by Britain’ campaign, to a member of the local Chamber of Trade and Commerce. We also support our local University Training College by offering them time, expertise and resources to the students.
We are proud sponsors of Otley, where our headquarters are based. We are also a supporter of national events in the local area such as the Tour de Yorkshire and a regular sponsor of local sporting groups.
