A Few Words About Us

vansbycounterEstablished in 1975 C R Hollands industrial supplies have been servicing the precision engineer with a broad range of high quality tooling solutions to meet demands in an ever changing industry.


Our offices and warehouse are based on the A46 in Woodchester near Stroud, Gloucestershire, where we are well placed with both the M4 M5 & M40 motorways being close by. As a well respected stockist of many leading brands of tools and workshop equipment we have a large fully stocked trade counter which is open to both account holding customers and the general public from 8.00am until 5.30pm Monday to Friday.


We hold extensive stocks and offer a next day delivery service for stocked items, which accounts for approximately eighty percent of our sales, the balance coming from non stocked items (specials) and are normally delivered in two to three working days, this indicates we have a good knowledge of where to source specific items which fall outside of our normal range.


At C R Hollands we process your enquiry or order using experienced industrial sales personnel who are able to handle most requirements over the telephone or by email. We recognise that there is no substitute for experience, and just how important it is to be able to interpret customer inquiries accurately and swiftly. This smart response is reinforced by our technical sales engineers who are field based and will be delighted to help you improve productivity and machine utilisation, tool life and overall performance in your manufacturing facility. In addition we have close working relationships with many brand leading suppliers who support us and liaise with our own technicians to ensure we collectively achieve the best possible result for the customer. We invite you to challenge us to improve your productivity.telesales


All transactions are carried out through our IBM I-Series business IT system where enquiries are captured and processed as quotations then phoned, faxed or emailed back to the customer. The system is robust and well established, covering all aspects our day to day business. Our sales personnel have full visibility of stocks, pricing and specific customer requirements which means we can give you prompt and accurate information or documentation.


Service is more important than ever, particularly as lead times have been reduced by customers demanding next day delivery. We carry a comprehensive range of modern tooling, and are constantly updating our stock program to keep up with new introductions from suppliers. It is important to carry a full range, but even more important to deliver on time, so with that in mind we deliver most orders next day using our fleet of vehicles and driven by C R Hollands employees thus ensuring everything possible will be done to achieve delivery on time every time.
