CMS Tools

“We’re investing in infrastructure and increasing our workforce so we can continue to provide high levels of service our customers have come to expect.”

Simon French, Managing Director, CMS Tools

CMS Tools strengthened its position in the Yorkshire market and beyond after receiving a six-figure investment from NPIF - FW Capital Debt Finance, managed by FW Capital and part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.

The firm is a distributor of high quality, specialist roofing tools and accessories to customers across the UK working in the building trade and construction sector. It has a nationwide network of stockists, with a range that includes sustainable wood-based products delivered from re-planted and sustainable sources.

Headquartered in Normanton, West Yorkshire, CMS Tools was established in 1981 and has a turnover of £3million. The investment supported plans to invest in infrastructure, create new jobs and the bulk buy of products to improve CMS Tools’ margins and increase profitability.

The first NPIF investment phase has now completed with the British Business Bank launching the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund II in March 2024.
