Company History

Originally founded in 1985 and operating locally, Stonegate focused on a multitude of industries and had a smaller, but more diverse, product range.

As we grew, and after years working with differing industries, we knew the way to grow was to find our niche so we could offer real value and a complete solution to one industry. Progress to find our niche was slow, we learned a lot as we explored what made our business successful and it was our customer relationships, particularly with contractors which gave us the inspiration we needed.

Initially, we started with stone flooring – particularly concrete flooring tools and machinery after having great relationships with local tradesmen. Our range was 200-300 products, purely for flooring contractors. Understanding stone flooring and stone as a material grew itself into a significant opportunity and we honed our focus, range and knowledge to the art of stone fabrication.

Dimond flooring pads let to diamond blades, drills and pads and naturally, due to our experience stone became our heartland. This direction meant we could tailor our product range and offering, our expertise became even more apparent in the industry and we could offer value-added solutions to customers countrywide.

After several years of focused, profitable trading we decided to position the business for its next stage of significant growth and in 2014 we moved to the current limited company, Stonegate Precision Tooling Ltd.
