On the Tools is the largest Online Construction Community in the UK. Founded in August 2014 by two school friends (one in the building in trade and one with a love of tech) they had the idea of solving the Construction Industry’s recruitment problems with a new App. Whilst creating the App the On the Tools Facebook page was created to give the brand some exposure. Since then the company has seen huge Social growth amassing over 2.1 Million followers across all social channels.
In 2017, On The Tools achieved more than 1 Billion video views on its Facebook channel including more than 84 Million for their commercial clients.
On the Tools has become the number one place for Tradespeople to air their views, watch videos, read articles and share their content.
In 2017, CEO Lee Wilcox was named the Great British Entrepreneur for the Midlands region, which was a massive accolade and real validation of the impact that On The Tools has made in terms of becoming a disruptive and creative social first marketing agency and also in recognition of the development and support of an engaged and vibrant construction-based community.
