Toolbox is becoming a well known online retailer in the UK, after just a few years of operation, a significant proportion of visitors/customers have already deemed them their ‘number one go-to guy’ for anything to do with power tools or hand held tools. Things look promising for Toolbox, especially if they can convert people to continually buy from their website after just one visit; who says a high level of service never pays off?
The Toolbox website is constantly expanding, and this week is no change from the rest as the guys in marketing upload a great new range of products. Say hello to a whole new range of LED Lenser torches, one of the most known and regarded brands in the field of LED lighting. If there’s an LED product you want, chances are, these are the people you want to be buying from.
LED is an acronym for light emitting diode, this type of light source has many benefits over a standard halogen bulb. The main most notable advantage is the durability; not only are they shock resistant, but they also last up to 1,000 times longer than a conventional light bulb. Green enthusiasts will be happy in the knowledge that they'll be helping to save the planet by buying an LED torch as LED’s save energy and reduce CO2 emissions. So whilst all the celebrities and eco-mentalists are out buying electric cars, sit back in the knowledge that an LED torch is also lending a helping hand to combat this overheated planet.
Scott Morris, Marketing Manager at Toolbox gave a couple of words on the new torches; “I have a few LED Lenser torches at my disposal, one attached to my keyring which I can’t begin to describe how useful it is and another main torch rated 220 lumens.
Having used it many times, I couldn’t possibly be without one now due to how efficient it is at doing everything I require it to do. The ability to focus in and out as well as change the light intensity is indescribably helpful and the clarity of the light can only be likened to crystals. Taking outdoor photographs in the dark used to be almost impossible without generators and HDI lighting; but the magnitude of LED Lenser torches makes it possible without shelling out for heavier equipment.”
Scott has virtually covered all aspects of these torches; the applications for a torch of this calibre are endless. There are policemen and women who swear by these torches for night-time use and some have even made use of the temporary ‘boost’ function to dazzle and disorientate people who aren’t cooperating with them. For quality like this, price is an after-thought when all the functions of a ‘simple torch’ are considered!
Toolbox.co.uk is the sister company of the ever expanding Plumbworld Network. Plumbworld was an early pioneer of online trading, started by James and Anita Hickman in 1999 and sold to the Grafton Group PLC in December 2006. Plumbworld now employs more than 50 people in its purpose built warehouse and offices and boasts an astonishing 50+ websites selling everything from bathrooms and Woodburners to barbecues and convector Paslode nail guns. The business has a turnover in excess of £18 million and is growing at more than 20% year on year.
Turning to the auto bailout, Obama made some terrible investments there, too. Last month, the Treasury Department released a report showing that U.S. taxpayers will never get $24.77 billion of the $85 billion they invested in General Motors and Chrysler back. That doesn't even count the additional $13 billion in tax breaks Obama has granted GM over the next decade.
And let's not forget how Obama forced GM to pour billions of dollars into the supposedly environmentally friendly Chevy Volt, which has turned out to be a spectacular failure.
GM had planned to sell 10,000 volts in 2011. Instead they sold just over 7,500. Meanwhile, the top-selling vehicle in the United States last year was the gas-guzzling, and non-bailed-out, Ford F-150 pickup. The big Ford has been the most popular vehicle in the U.S. for more than three decades.
Speaking of gas, guess what is the fastest-growing sector of the economy in the Obama recovery? The extractive energy industries (which includes mining and oil and gas production).
Since the job market reached bottom, jobs in the mining/oil/gas sector have grown a whopping 23 percent. If anyone should be credited for the job growth in the energy sector, it is the Republicans who blocked Obama's cap-and-trade plan in Congress, then forced his Environmental Protection Agency to delay a flood of economically suffocating global warming regulations.
In general speaking, 12V LED has become more and more affordable, therefore auto LED bulbs have been used widely.
