Our talented & experienced team delivers amazing results.

John Thompson

Group Managing Director

A member of the founding family, John has without doubt, the most experience in industrial power tool application engineering, and is very well known across the industry sector. An apprentice trained manufacturing engineer, he started his career with Thor Tools in 1967 and has over 45 years’ experience. Over his extensive career, he has worked with many blue-chip companies such as Atlas Copco, Chicago Pneumatic, Desoutter and Ingersoll Rand to name just a few.

Adam Thompson

Kris Simpson

Group Chief Operating Officer

Kris is the archetypal "hands on" senior team member. An apprentice trained mechanical fitter and turner, he joined Thompson Power Tools in 2007 as a mechanical fitter. He rapidly climbed the ranks to Service Manager in 2009, then on to Group Operations Director in 2016. More recently in 2020 he has taken on the role of Chief Operating Officer.

Louise Quin

Group Chief Finance Officer

Louise joined the organisation with a wealth of skills and experience in the world of finance. Her professionalism and attention to detail ensure that our busy accounts department runs effectively and efficiently at all times. Although selling products and services is the key to the success of any organisation, professionally managed accounts is equally important, to ensure smooth cash-flow and a financially health business. Louise fully appreciates this and assures it happens at all times.
