Monument Tools is an Innovative, UK based, Privately Owned company which Designs, Manufactures and Markets Professional Quality Tools for Plumbing, Roofing and Drainage under the Monument Brand, via Private Label and OEM.

For five generations, family-owned Monument Tools has manufactured professional quality tools for plumbing, roofing and drainage. Based in Hackbridge, Surrey and named after the Monument to the Great Fire of London in 1666, Monument's hallmark of innovation and investment in manufacturing processes and product design have made it one of the largest hand tool manufacturers in Europe.

During the First World War, Arthur Collier Snr produced tools that no other manufacturer had. He did this by inventing tools himself or buying patents or obtaining licences to manufacture and sell from patent owners. He also made tools for the Ministry of Supply for the War Effort, producing amongst other things, wing compasses, examples of which still come to light. In 1924 he bought the patent to the Shetack Saw from the inventor and in 1930 he designed the Shetack Basin Wrench.

Since the 1930's Monument has continued to design, manufacture and market tools with a highly skilled workforce. The business moved to Balham Hill in 1969 until 1996 which saw the move to Hackbridge with John, Arthur Collier Jnr's son, working with his son Jonathan, the 5th generation of Colliers.

To this day, the majority of Monument's products ranging from small pipe cutters to manhole cover lifters are proudly Made in Britain and references to a Shetack or a Monument within the industry are well understood.
