67 Years in Business

Trend was founded in 1955 by Jim Phillips, a passionate and enthusiastic woodworker who had the vision of bringing high-quality woodworking machinery to the U.K.

With early collaboration from Elu, Jim became the first authorized distributor of plunge routers in the UK. Now, after over a half-century of innovation in routing technology, Trend has the most comprehensive routing range on the market. 

We are proud to say that innovation within routing, offering strong customer service and providing problem-solving solutions are still at the heart of Trend's core values 67 years later.

Today, we stock over 1,800 unique router cutters, covering a wide range of different profiles for a variety of applications. We also offer an extensive range of 1/2" & 1/4" routers, ranging from light to heavy-duty as well as an abundance of jigs, templates, and accessories to increase the versatility of your router and help you produce an accurate and professional finish every time.

Trend has now expanded its product line to include cordless power tools, dust extractors, sawblades, sharpening solutions, abrasives, and drilling accessories.

"What I love best about Trend is the high quality of their products at an affordable price. From my workshop everyday items like the digital angle finder, digital level box and Air Stealth Respirator right through to the class-leading T14 Router, I can confidently turn to Trend products knowing I am getting good value for money, reliability and excellent build quality."

"I've been using Trend jigs and accessories for a few years now, in particular router jigs and templates with great success, however recently I've started using their cordless tool range and find these great value and excellent quality. My go-to drill driver and router are all Trend now, oh and not to mention the shop vacs which have amazing suction and are quieter than any I've used before. Overall a great company based in the United Kingdom."
