Leading Engineering Supplies Company sold to John Gibson Hire and Sales Ltd

Independent, family owned and managed business, Northern Power Tools was formed in 1973 by entrepreneur Neil Gavins as official service agents to several leading manufacturers.

Based on the main arterial route into Sheffield, the company grew quickly and within 4 years had outgrown its premises. Under the direction of Neil’s Son, Andrew, the company expanded its range of products and services to include all major manufacturers. To meet the needs of its rapidly expanding business, new premises, were built, which were further expanded over the years to provide warehousing, a repair centre and room for further expansion.

With a skilled team to provide expert technical advice, a dedicated repair centre and an extensive range of products, the company soon became a single-source solution for engineering and industrial customers who were confident in our client’s ability to deliver quickly and reliably.

Andrew wanted to achieve his goal of retiring at the age of 50 by selling his business. He planned to explore other opportunities, having worked in the business since his apprenticeship as a 15 year old.
