Trusted by Generations - UK Advertising Campaign


Footprint, the British Hand Tool manufacturer begins its new UK advertising campaign “Trusted by Generations” this month.

Footprint Tools can trace its history of manufacturing back to the 18th century and the company continues this heritage at its factory in Sheffield, Britain. After a tough recession Footprint Tools has rebuilt its forging capabilities, sparked up the furnaces and is back to doing what it does best; making world class hand tools in Sheffield.

The advertisements are aimed at tradesmen who want quality tools to go with their quality workmanship: tools which will stand the test of time and use. They demonstrate that Footprint isn’t just a brand created in the last few years but a brand with a real heritage of quality; a brand that genuinely manufactures most of its own products unlike many other brands.

The adverts will be featured in the April and May issues of Professional Builder Magazine and will be used in a number of other initiatives. 

Footprint Tools Managing Director, Richard Jewitt says. “In 08/09 we thought it was the end of Footprint Tools but we are still here and focusing on what we do best: making world class hand tools in Sheffield.  Very few of our competitors can claim to make their own tools or have the experience and heritage as far ranging as ours.
