Direct Tool Company (DTC) describes itself as the leading supplier of refinishing tools, consumables and plant equipment for some of the most prestigious names in the sailing scene.
26 years ago, DTC identified the sailing industry as a target market, its advantageous positioning in Southampton, UK, permitting easy access to local sailing teams. This rapidly escalated as their reputation took hold as the go-to reliable refinishing supply experts. DTC says that it now supplies many of the big names in the exciting yacht racing world.
“I couldn’t be happier with the way Direct Tool Company has gone from strength to strength over those past 26 years. Through honest hard work and consistently putting our customers in the driving seat, I see my fantastic team here grow stronger each and every day,” said Tim Wakeford, Managing Director of DTC.
