, Bohler Uddeholm and Danbar Plastics have joined together to donate 1,000 locally manufactured quality drills sets as part of the “Tools for Tradies” bushfire relief program organized by the Lions Club International.
After the devastating effects of the Victorian bushfires Sutton Tools recognised that a practical way of donating to the relief was to help replace tools that were lost in the fires. Sutton Tools as the manufacturer contacted their two key supplies to assist with the donation of 1000 drill sets valued at over $150,000. Both company’s jumped at the opportunity with Bohler Uddeholm supplying the steel for the drills and Danbar Plastics for the set cases and packaging.It is hoped that this donation will help in some small way in the
rebuilding of communities.
