“We supply anything that makes a power tool useful from the heart of the company’s buzzing warehouse at its state-of-the-art Midrand headquarters. Whether it’s the tool itself, or it is anything that is required to operate that tool, Vermont Sales will have the tool or component to get that job done,” Vermont Sales managing director, Ryan Hunt, explains.  

He adds that the company’s best value, yet highest quality tool brands are hand-picked and torture tested to destruction to prove their prowess at our intensive test centre, before they even go on sale. Vermont Sales products are all freely available to provide exceptional solutions to any trade’s every job, via an ever-growing network throughout Southern Africa, and fully backed by our professional sales force.  

Vermont Sales is a success story forged on hard work and best principles. Based on a strong trade background, Roland and wife Mindi Hunt began distributing tools to the hardware trade in 1985. Vermont Sales grew quickly, as son and daughter Ryan and Angela joined the team to drive the family business into its corporate future. Continued growth off pioneering principles soon saw the company establish its Midrand headquarters as it also steadily grew employment to satisfy an ever-rising staff compliment.  

Samples of every Vermont Sales tool and accessory is extensively tested and proven at the company’s high tech test centre before it ever goes on sale. The Vermont Test Team spends every working hour over-working, destruction testing and evaluating all tool lines, to be sure that every tool is ready for the toughest possible task. The Test Centre also offers troubleshooting to support any worker who may have tool trouble in the field or in his or her workshop. Every product is backed by Vermont’s own and international brand guarantees.
