Castleford tool shop scoops top award at ceremony in London

24 May 2023

An online refurbished tool shop based in Castleford has gone from strength-to-strength, doubling its turnover and scooping a top award at a business ceremony in the capital.

The national award was presented to Ben Richardson, founder of Toolz 4 You Ltd, at the BizX Awards in London.

Mr Richardson set up the business in 2016, reconditioning tools and re-selling them on eBay, gradually adding in reconditioned machinery and other platforms to sell on. Since then, he has doubled the size of his business, driven profit growth enough to finally make an income for himself, grown a team around him and moved to bigger premises. Mr Richardson has a clear focus on long term goals and with the help of the team at ActionCOACH Wakefield, he has learnt to break that down into 90 day goals.

“Coaching keeps me on track and accountable, so I know I will achieve these goals,” he said.

"I also reinvest time and money in myself and my team and am constantly looking for ways to improve the business.”

He said the key to success was building relationships with customers, even as an online shop, to offer great service and market specific items directly to the people when they need them.
