Record Power has a long and impressive history. Established in Sheffield, the heart of the UK's steel industry, and stretching back over 100 years, they enjoy an enviable reputation for creating high quality tools through the many years of experience and unparalleled knowledge in manufacturing and design. Their policy of continual improvement and development has seen Record Power remain at the forefront of tool manufacturing whilst also acquiring and developing such brands as Coronet of Derby and Burgess from Leicester. In addition, the industrial brand, Startrite, also has a long history of providing high quality, durable machinery to the trade professional and various features of these machines are the inspirations behind aspects of many Record Power machines.
The Record Power head office and distribution centre is now based in the heart of the UK at Barlborough, a few short miles from the Sheffield roots. Some of the staff have been there for up to 40 years, ensuring they still retain and pass on in-depth knowledge and expertise in hand and machine tool manufacturing and use. This gives Record Power the distinct advantage of being able to continue to design, develop and source a comprehensive and wide ranging selection of premium quality products to meet the needs of discerning woodworkers. Record Power work with carefully selected trading partners from the UK, Europe and Far East to provide the best quality products possible as well as continuing to manufacture some products in the UK.
