Success for the 2016 Frank Howard Tool Show

Published:  20 July, 2016

From 8 to 9 July, Frank Howard Tools & Fixings, held their annual show at Chelmsford City Racecourse. Over 1,000 people passed through the doors of the successful yearly event which featured over 30 big name brands, including Bosch, Makita, Festool, Paslode, Snickers and Draper.

The two-day show offered tradespeople and DIY’ers alike the chance to get up close and personal to the latest products and innovations. In addition, there was a range of helpful hands on demonstrations where attendees could get to grips with the latest merchandise on the market.

There was also a prize draw which saw seven customers win great prizes including a 32" TV, PS4, Kindle Paperwhite, racecourse tickets as well as a Makita radio.

Frank Howard, founder of Frank Howard Tools & Fixings, said: “We are absolutely delighted with the turnout at the 2016 Frank Howard Tool Show. This year we held the event at a new location, Chelmsford City Racecourse, which enabled us to develop the show further including even more big name brands. As a result, we were able to offer visitors the chance to really get up close and personal with the latest tools to hit the market.”
