Olympia Tools 's Challenge

Olympia Tools was established in the UK almost 20 year ago. Since those early days, they have grown to become a major European, trade only distributor of hand tools and work wear which now offers quite literally hundreds of products under a variety of brand names which includes Roughneck; recognised internationally as an assurance of 'tough tools for a tough world'. They are also the business behind the Gorilla Bar™, Gorilla Sledge Hammers™, Wood Grenade® and the MUTT®.

They owe their success to a number of different factors with one of the most crucial being their unrelenting focus on innovation. Whilst they acknowledge that the fundamental design of many hand tools has been proven over decades or even centuries, they also recognise that opportunities for enhancement and improvement can and still do exist. Olympia Tools aims to provide high quality products backed by equally high levels of service and support. Their team is here to help and can offer expert advice and recommendations based on their considerable experience of meeting the hand tool and work wear needs of customers of varying sizes and involved a variety of market sectors. To ensure they can respond quickly and efficiently to your needs, Olympia Tools also operates from two sites across Europe – with their head office and main showrooms in Reading, United Kingdom and a second, sales office in Germany.

Oaktree's Solution

The project has been successfully completed on time and within budget. The company branding has been the main focus point with the Gorilla image graphic wall looking very sharp. which now gives Olympia the opportunity to invite clients to meet at their offices to view all their flagship products which have been setup within their showroom area.

What Oaktree Delivered

Our brief was to create a new design in order to complement the company Brand/Image and focusing heavily on client & guest welcoming areas. The new layout will include: new meet & greet area, new cellular offices including sales room, marketing manager's office, new Archive rooms,open plan desk area, new showroom, new boardroom and new meeting rooms. We used a mixture of solid walls & glass partitions, with Mechanical & Electrical works also being included within this project.
