Company History

Company History

Jointing Tech, known then as Toolout, was founded by Jeff Lloyd in 1988.  The business focused on specialist tool hire and sales, offering a niche product range and service to the general power 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 a strategic alliance with Raychem, diversifying into the electricity infrastructure industry and specialising in the distribution of power cable accessories.

Throughout the 1990’s Toolout continued its growth, forming strategic distribution partnerships with market leading companies such as Furse, 3M, and Cembre, expanding its leadership of the medium voltage (MV) power distribution sector. These alliances allowed Toolout to offer a fully comprehensive range of products and services within the specialist power cable accessories market.

In 1998 Toolout changed trading names to Jointing Tech to better reflect the new, expanded product range and relocated to a 6,000 sq ft head office in Woking.

Also in 2001, Jointing Tech opened a dedicated Trace Heating Division based close to their Woking head office.  The Trace Heating Division specialises in electric underfloor heating, leak detection, frost protection and hot water temperature maintenance for commercial, industrial and residential properties.

In 2006, Adam Lloyd took over from his father to become 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, Centriforce, Tyco and Prysmian Group. A dynamic sales team was also brought on board to increase the company’s geographical coverage and deliver the unparalleled levels of service Jointing Tech are renowned for.

In 2012 Jointing Tech invested in a purpose built 20,000 sq ft Distribution Centre in the Midlands, fully stocking it with a multi-million pound inventory, allowing the company to deliver the largest range of power cable and power cable accessories across the UK.

As well as creating a nationwide branch network, Jointing Tech invests in strategic business acquisitions which included the purchase of Langley Engineering in 2014.  Langley Engineering supply transformers, voltage regulators and switchgear into the low, medium and high voltage markets both in the UK and overseas.

In 2017 Jointing Tech launched their online web shop, revolutionising the cable accessories market by becoming the only company in the sector to offer such a comprehensive range of specialist products for sale online.  With hundreds of thousands of products from the leading names in the industry, many on a next day delivery, Jointing Tech brought convenience and quality to the industry 24/7.

In 2018 Jointing Tech diversified into stainless steel cable cleat manufacturing.  The extensive cleat range is certified to IEC 61914: 2015 and installed within major projects across the UK including Eleclink, Cross Rail and Transport for London (TFL) projects.

In 2019 Jointing Tech opened a branch in Ballycoolin, Dublin primarily as a sales, storage and distribution depot in order to capitalise on the growing demand from Irish based customers who wanted access to Jointing Tech’s product portfolio whilst receiving the same level of service experienced by the existing customer base in the Great Britain

In 2021 Jointing Tech was acquired by the Wolseley Infrastructure Company, complementing Wolseley's existing Fusion Utilities Power business and collectively strengthening the joint position as the unrivalled, premier providers to the power industry.

2022 saw Jointing Tech continue geographic growth with the acquisition of a purpose built 20,000 sq ft facility in Yate, Bristol.
