About Hilka Tools

Hilka Tools have been sold in the UK for over 55 years and are available through a wide range of stockists.

In June 2022 the company is celebrating forty years since the incorporation of Hilka Tools (UK) Ltd with the Hilka brand previously being sold under the Greenhill & Ellis business since the mid 1960's when the brand was introduced in 1966. The Hilka brand has grown into a well-known and trusted brand, and we would like to thank our customers and end users for their support and continued purchases over the many years. Many of our original tools are still in use today especially our gold tinned socket sets which we were famous for in our early years! 

Hilka Tools is one of the UK’s industry leaders when it comes to supplying innovative yet affordable tools and hardware to the trade and DIY enthusiast. Hilka’s tools have been sold in the UK for over 55 years and the brand is synonymous with quality and value.

We offer a wide selection of high quality products, our range varies from hand & power tools to tool storage and automotive accessories. These can be purchased through a large number of stockists covering the UK. 

Hilka also has an offering of over 170 products available for purchase through our stockists which are then delivered directly to the consumer's door.

Our Chessington Office has experienced sales and support staff to assist both stockist and consumer enquiries. The Hilka Tools national sales force is available to visit you if you are interested in becoming a stockist. Our Witney Distribution Centre keeps huge stocks to fulfil orders quickly and efficiently. 

History & Warehouse

In 2013 we relocated to our new warehouse in Oxford in order to stock more products due to the growing demand. In 2019 we moved again into a site which can handle over 4,000 pallets as we outgrew the old building. We are now able to store over 100% more stock than we originally anticipated when moving to our new warehouse in 2013!

Direct Despatch

Our Direct Dispatch service offers over 170 products that are available for delivery directly to customers front doors from our warehouse. This  service allows for a speedy delivery and less inventory being held in a stockist warehouse.
