Brixton Shop, 1902

Technical Expertise and Heritage

Monument Tools' mission is, and always has been, to manufacture and supply professional quality plumbing tools and equipment.

Monument Tools has an unrivalled expertise in developing innovative tooling solutions for the plumbing, heating, roofing, gas, pipe testing and drainage industry.

It was 1880, when George Collier first commenced trading as a tool dealer in Brixton, London. His trade was taken up by his sons and successive generations that have focussed their business on shops that were opened in South London.

In 1908 the Monument brand name was first registered. In 1969 the company moved to larger premises in Balham and in 1976 assumed the name Monument Tools Ltd.
