Toolstation is Travis Perkins' small format and trade distribution line.

Toolstation, the small format and trade distribution line of the British Travis Perkins group, is expanding outside the UK. In France, the first three branches within range of the new distribution centre in Lyon opened in the fourth quarter of 2017. Toolstation is already selling online in Belgium and Germany, with orders being shipped from the Netherlands.

The British company is expanding fast in the Netherlands, where like-for-like growth exceeded 30 per cent in 2017, driven by the online and stationary business. The number of branches grew to 20 and is to be doubled in 2018.
