According to the Power Tools Market in Europe Analysis Report*, it is expected that the power tools market in Europe will grow by $1.36 billion (€1.16 billion) during 2018-2022. This growth is being attributed to the rapid adoption of cordless power tools to keep up with the growing DIY culture.
Growing popularity of DIY in the European home improvement market has led to an increase in the demand for power tools that are convenient, lightweight, safe, and enable freedom of movement.
The cordless power tools segment is the fastest growing product segment of the power tools market in Europe. This is propelling the adoption of lithium-ion batteries as they are extensively used in cordless power tools as they use less toxic materials and have a low self-discharge rate. Cordless power tools powered by li-ion batteries also exhibit high power density and enhanced power-to-weight ratio. Thus, the growing popularity of cordless power tools equipped with li-ion batteries is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.

International Tool Industries all under One Roof!
The high-quality, professional brand BENMAN has been a great success for International Tool Industries (I.T.I) since commencing their business as a hand tool importer/distributor two years ago.
Supporting the Benman brand and from the same stable is their FF hand tool range, a highly competitive semi professional tool, offering quality and reliability.
Complementary to their hand tools is MORRIS, a full range of acrylic and technical aerosol sprays and decorating tools, including paint rollers and brushes, a must for both the professional and the DIY enthusiast. HUGO is their lock range, offering padlocks to suit every application, with boron steel shackles, fully approved marine locks, multipack and combination key-less locks.
The company’s biggest challenge to date was finding a wayto market. Recognising that they had the brands with quality and range, they still needed strengthin numbers and that came with them building a strong team of colleagues. From their warehouse to their purchasing department and a three-strong salesteam they have extensive industry knowledge and expertise. They realised that all the pieces of the jigsaw were starting to come together very quickly. As General Manager Don O’Toole says, “We now have all the key components in place, but we wouldn’t have been able to get this position without our customers. Thank you to all of our very loyal and supportive customers”.
Having worked hard aligning their market position, ITI have acquired distributionfor a high quality Italian manufactured pressure washer range, AR Blue Clean. This has become very popular for the company and their customers love the products, the pricing and the quality. ITI added another string to their bow in later 2019, Makita Power Tools. This brand has really elevated the company’s profile and added an extensive range to their portfolio of products. Makita is a brand leader in the construction and power tool industry for many years and is one of the best heavy-duty power tool products in the market. Consisting of 700+ cordless tools, using 18 & 36V battery power applications, and promoting “One Battery Fits All” they have since added the new 40V battery XGT range, giving more run time before charging.
Due to the continued growth in their business, ITI have just relocated to a 30,000 sq. ft warehouse, to facilitate the unprecedented expansion in sales. They continue to offer a next day service, supported by a pick rate of 97%,
offering total customer satisfaction. Their online web shop has contributed to steady growth and has given flexibility to their extensive customer base to place electronic orders at a time that suits them.
