COVENTRY: Buck & Hickman has joined forces with the National Federation of Builders (NFB) to give its members exclusive discounts at any Buck & Hickman Tooltastic trade counter through a personal Tooltastic card.

NFB is the first trade association to team up with the UK’s leading distributor of tools, maintenance and health and safety products to grant members a 10% discount on all products purchased from any of its 26 Tooltastic trade counters. Customers just need to register their cards in store to start saving straight away. 

Simon Armer, marketing manager at Buck & Hickman, said: “The new Tooltastic discount card offers tradesman exclusive reductions off our catalogue prices. Members of the NFB are the first to benefit, but we intend to develop relationships with other trade associations going forward.”

Tooltastic was launched in January 2009 to appeal to a broad trade market including builders, decorators, joiners, plasterers, plumbers and tillers. Tooltastic trade counters stock fully merchandised ranges of tools, maintenance products and safety equipment with over 60 000 further products available next day.
