Toolout was founded in 1988 as a specialist tool hire and sales business offering a niche product range and service to the general electric market. The company grew quickly and in 1990 entered into an agreement with Pirelli to distribute their range of BICC cable accessories.
In the early 1990’s, the utility sector was privatised and Toolout formed an alliance with Raychem, diversifying into the electricity infrastructure industry and specialising in the distribution of power cable accessories.
During the 1990’s the Toolout business creatied strategic distribution partnerships with companies such as Furse, 3M, and Cembre and expanded into the MV power distribution sector. These strategic partnerships allowed Toolout to offer a comprehensive range of products and services within the specialist power cable accessories market.
In 1998 Toolout changed trading names to Jointing Technologies to better reflect the new, expanded company product range and relocated to a new 6,000 sqft head office in Woking.
Jointing Technologies continued its national expansion through the acquisition of the Midlands based Power and Telecoms business and the opening of a new Bristol office in 2001.
In 2006, Adam Lloyd became Managing Director, building on the strong company ethos and values whilst also focusing on delivering a best in class suite of products and services to the UK power industry.
National expansion continued throughout the 2000’s with new distributor agreements being signed including those with Pfisterer, ABB, Band-It and Centriforce, Tyco and Prysmian Group. A new sales team was also brought on board to increase the company’s geographical coverage and deliver the unparalleled levels of service Jointing Technologies are renowned for.
In 2012 Jointing Technologies invested in a 20,000 sqft Distribution Centre in the Midlands, stocking it with a multi-million pound inventory, allowing Jointing Technologies to distribute the largest range of power cable accessories in the UK.
As well as creating a nationwide branch network, Jointing Technologies has invested in strategic business acquisitions including the purchase of Langley Engineering in 2014.
Jointing Technologies is the leading supplier of specialist power cable and accessories into the UK market.
