Alca Tools began trading in July 1974, supplying local engineers with cutting tools and other workshop consumables. Over the years, our business has grown to a substantial size offering engineers all over Kent a service our competitors envy.
We have become a major stockist for cutting tools including carbide inserts, drills, taps, and milling tools. These are available in a range of standard, high performance and special tooling. Our stocks are one of the best in Kent and the range of products has increased to incorporate almost any product, consumable or otherwise for sub-contract engineers, toolrooms, fabricators, maintenance workshops, production shops and assembly lines.
One Stop Shop
To our customers we have become a "One Stop Shop" where you can purchase fasteners, hand tools, adhesives, abrasives, machinery, oils, handcleaners, and more. Our Herne Bay office houses a large trade counter and shop area for the general public, which has established a reputation for providing tooling to suit varying budgets. Alca Tools offers a daily delivery service all over Kent serviced by our fleet of vehicles, also backed up by Securicor''s national and international delivery service.
Our supplier base is extensive and offers every brand leader, as well as new innovative manufacturers. We are founder members of the largest buying group in the country and, as such, are able to offer the best terms on brand leader products such as Sandvik Coromant, Dormer, and Titex, along with most alternative manufacturers.
As an independent company trading, with the additional buying power of a multi million pound buying group, we have an outstanding name in the trade, with not only our suppliers and customers, but also our competitors. No order too small...no order too large! Personal service and technical backup guaranteed.
