Established in 1988, G E Tools is a successful, independently owned, industrial distribution company based in beautiful North Wales. Our association with the Troy Group puts us at the forefront of competitive pricing, breadth of range, and technical support. Our dedicated team of customer advisors is based in a modern industrial warehouse a stone’s throw from the Wales | England border opposite RAF Sealand in Deeside, Flintshire. From this location, we supply MRO products to companies throughout the UK.

We operate a retail store in Rhyl, right in the centre of the North Wales coast. Here you’ll find plentiful stocks of tools, personal protective equipment, work clothing, janitorial products, and fixings. The store has been created with trades professionals in mind, and the product range reflects that intention. From the same building, we also operate a garment personalisation service with in-house embroidery and printing facilities.

We pay attention to detail in everything we do. It matters.



There are no two ways about it, back in 1988 we were a traditional Engineer’s Merchant. We understood engineering and how to cut, form, shape, and weld metal. The world has witnessed an enormous technological shift since then, and we’ve stayed at the forefront of industrial supply by evolving and adapting to new technologies early. Today, we are proud to list customers in a diverse range of industry sectors, including engineering (of course!), manufacturing, pharmaceutical, space technology, hospitality, education, and healthcare to name but a few. The diverse range of products we offer, enables us to be a valuable supply partner in a whole host of settings.
