Power-tool firm keeps it in family with changes for management

Power tools - Power tool business being passed down the family - SantanderCB

Ownership of Elcocks Limited, a power-tool business in Fulford, is being passed down through the family to the grandchildren of founding director Claude Elcock, who began the company in 1971. Brother and sister duo Andrew Elcock and Claire Bedford are set to take over the reins, and thanks to a £500,000 funding package from Santander Corporate & Commercial, they are looking to expand the firm's hire fleet with the addition of the latest machines including new Hitachi power saws, sweepers and steam cleaners. The funding will also go towards investment in Elcocks' digital capability and online sales channel, as well as further staff training.
