FOR RELEASE – January 20th 2016



National Recognition for Exmouth Based Tool Specialists


A specialist power and hand tool retailer in Exmouth has been shortlisted for a prestigious industry award following a landmark year.


Exmouth Power Tools, an independent retail business that has just celebrated its 25th year in business, has been shortlisted in the DIY Week Awards for 2016. The national event celebrates the very best of the DIY industry across the UK.


Eighteen prizes will be awarded to businesses from across the UK honoring their innovative products and outstanding commitment to customer service.


Exmouth Power Tools’ Directors, Gary and Val Wright, will be attending the black tie event as one of two finalists in the ‘Tool Retailer of the Year’ category to be held at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on 16th February.


Gary said, “It’s an honour to have been named as a finalist in the DIY Week Awards for this year. We have been chosen over many other competing retailers, which we believe is in recognition of not only what we have achieved over recent years, but also the efforts we continue to put in to delivering great products and service to our customers”


Val went on to say, “This is a very prestigious award that reflects the hard work that all of the staff at Exmouth Power Tools have put in to help us get on the shortlist. We have had an exciting time in recent months, celebrating our 25th anniversary year in business in Exmouth and gaining some unexpected national press coverage when we came to the aid of a local gentleman by repairing his prosthetic limb.


Last summer, Exmouth Power Tools, saved Dave Parr, of Budleigh Salterton a three month wait in a wheelchair by carrying out repairs on the foot of his broken prosthetic leg. Dave called on Exmouth Power Tools, to ask for help keeping him mobile when he faced a long delay getting a replacement. The result was that Dave was back on his feet within half an hour, and at no cost.


The DIY Week Awards were created to recognise and reward the businesses responsible for product and service innovation in the DIY sector;  businesses like Exmouth Power Tools who are prepared to go the extra mile when it comes to customer service.
