Where it all started
The business was founded over 30 years ago by Garry. He started with just a bucket of tools in his mothers garden shed repairing tools for local tradies. The business soon out grew the garden shed and moved into a larger shed behind the Bailey Centre Service Station Coffs Harbour which was shared with another small business just finding its feet.
As demand for repairs along with sales grew the big brands got word of Garry and he’s knowledge and expertise they then allowed him to open accounts and source parts and new tools direct.
Bananacoast Power Tools is now well established in Coffs Harbour and without the support and loyalty of the local Trades we would never of survived the big corporate trade stores moving to town.
With 30 plus years of knowledge of sales and repairs. We sell most major brands of Power, Battery, Air and Gas Tools and equipment along with all the accessories that go with them. We carry a large range of nails for all types of nail guns. We are the local stockist of FESTOOL and one of the only retail outlets for Hilti products.
We have now grown from a 1 man operation to a team of 5.
