Augusta Tool Suppliers was founded in 1999 by Vivian George who has grown the business from humble beginnings in a small warehouse in Boksburg to where it is today.
Augusta Tool Suppliers started out as a tool wholesaler selling a full range of quality hand tools. After a few years, ATS saw a gap in the market and started importing a range of tools to complement the power tool market. Our main line was high quality drill bits.
The company grew from strength to strength becoming a major supplier of quality drill bits covering HSS, Masonry and an SDS range.
The products were so good in both quality terms and in price that very soon some of Augusta’s biggest clients asked if they might create their own brands building on Augusta’s expertise in selecting the best factories for supply. This development was a turning point for Augusta and they also created their own brand-Javelin- at the same time.
The Javelin brand today is synonymous with high quality industrial products at affordable prices and the company is now one of the largest suppliers of drills in South Africa.
The Javelin range now offers a complete range of powertool accessories, industrial products as well as their very own H2O gardening range.
In 2012 Augusta Tool Suppliers decided to go into the welding market and Smarter Welding Africa was born.
