About Us

Busy Bee Tools is Canada’s largest woodworking & metalworking tool retailer. Established in 1976, Busy Bee Tools has 10 locations coast to coast and a large mail-order/e-commerce division serving North America.


We are proud to be one of the first companies in the industry to begin importing and manufacturing machines for the market back in the late 70’s. Since the beginning , our philosophy of business has been to Buy Direct and Sell Direct to the end user, avoiding traditional dealership networks and passing the savings directly to the customer. Our brand of machinery, Craftex & Craftex CX Series, is a house hold name in Canadian woodworking & metalworking and can be found in thousands of workshops across the country.


Busy Bee Tools is a 100% Canadian Owned and Operated business with over 100 employees in Canada. We are proud of our heritage and our reputation as one of Canada’s premier tool retailers. Our focus is the serious “do-it-yourselfer” as well as businesses that make a living working with our tools. With a firm belief in good ethics, fair sales practices and putting the customer first, we are proud to be Canucks!


When you walk into a Busy Bee Tools store, you will find a showroom filled with over 5,000 tools and accessories, but you will also find a knowledgeable and friendly staff. Our sales people come from different backgrounds and trades, but all love working with tools. They are non-commissioned and non-pressure people who love answering questions and talking about what project you’re working on. We’re the opposite of the “big box” tool store experience!


We have 10 full service showrooms across the country all open to the public and ready to serve you! Ask a team member to demo just about any tool or run just about any machine. Feel comfortable talking with knowledgeable people and feeling out the tools before you buy them. Our head office location in Concord which is our main distribution center, also features Canada’s largest woodworking & metalworking parts department with over 10,000 parts in stock at all times! Our parts help service our own machinery, as well as most of our competitors!


Since the beginning, we have been buying and selling direct to our customers. We carry our own wide range of machinery and accessories as well as the industry’s most popular brands. We love low prices and are committed to saving you money!
