On February 15th and 16th 2015, Tucks O'Brien had the pleasure of participating in the Hardware Show, at Citywest Hotel, Dublin. Two stands were created - One for Tucks O'Brien and one for our own brand, Talatools. This show allowed us to take customers back to the origins of Tucks O'Brien with a replica of our old store from 1877, which was built to house our stands and all our products on offer. Met with great enthusiasm and many compliments, the stand proved a test of innovation and originality, with it's double, wooden fronted doors, traditional shop typeface and A0 posters lining three sides of the shop, displaying collages of old advertisements and products from brands Bahco, Irwin, Stabila and Stanley.
As you exited at the reverse of shop, you were leaving behind the past and entering into the future, with a modern, open, Talatools stand, showcasing an impressive range of power and hand tools. Both sides of the stand are branded with the Talatools motto 'Great Tools, Great Value' and clearly represent the brands pride in providing quality tools, at great prices and the fact we are 'An Irish Owned Brand', that has been in service since 1984. The Talatools stand could be seen from any corner of the room, with it's striking Talatools blue, highlighted by tall, dark slat walls, hanging an array of products.
Tucks O'Brien were the talk of the show, with two triumphant stands that showcased our creativity, hard work and determination, which in turn lives up to our Mission statement: 'Tucks O'Brien strives to be the best distributor in its field by ensuring that our customers consistently out-perform their market'
Thank you to everyone who came down to see us.
