About Armeg.

Here at Armeg, our philosophy is to bring smarter drills and tools to professionals; tools that are designed to save tradesmen time, money and deliver efficiencies through intelligent and innovative design features.

Power tool accessories are at our core and we’ve been manufacturing hammer drill bits at our Sheffield HQ since 1973. Over the years our range has grown and our extensive collection now spans from general purpose drill bits to Screwdrivers and Hand Tools, including products that have revolutionised the industry.

We understand that tool reliability and trusted on-site performance is essential so we ensure that product quality and manufacturing excellence is at the heart of everything we do. Striving for built-in quality we ensure our products are designed, developed and engineered to the highest standards with technically robust designs and top material specifications.

That’s why we’ve been trusted by professionals for over 40 years.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be the tradesmen’s first choice, trusted brand for smarter drills and tools. Professionalism and trust are fundamental to what we do and if a product has our name on it, our customers should have the confidence it will be the right tool for the job and consistently deliver the performance they require.


Made in Sheffield

We’ve been manufacturing tools in Sheffield since 1973 and the ‘Steel City’ is central to who we are. Our Sheffield based manufacturing history has left essential knowledge and techniques embedded within the business and we are proud to be the only UK manufacturer of SDS Plus and Max hammer drills. We are members of the prestigious ‘Made in Sheffield’ organization and have access to support industries across the city, from top universities to local specialist forging and tooling providers.

Our History


The company was formed in 1973 by two brothers, Andrew and Michael Green, who had been working locally within the industry. By bringing their initials together, the name ‘Armeg’ was born. 


We embarked on exporting with Australia being our first international market.


At the height of the 80’s we were granted the SDS Plus Hammer drill bit license by Bosch.


The company was bought out, going into the new millennium with a new management team, comprising of Mark Goodison and current sole MD, John Mowthorpe.


Tile drilling was changed forever when we revolutionised the market with the launch of ‘PTC’, the first ‘point & push’ carbide drill bit capable of drilling grade 5 porcelain tiles.


We joined the prestigious ‘Made in Sheffield’ organization.


Symbolising our dedication to continuous quality improvement, we became ISO 9001 accredited.


Mark Goodison retired from the business leaving John Mowthorpe as sole Managing Director
and majority shareholder.


Striving For Smarter

Our passion is striving for smarter products that push the boundaries of what is possible. We want to deliver tradesmen efficiencies which save them time and money and provide tools which excite and are enjoyable to use.

We are dedicated to the continuous development of innovative designs and our dedicated R&D team constantly drive to add to our collection of ground-breaking product innovations such as the Electrical Box Sinker, the world’s first square hole drill.

The Team

At the heart of the business is our team, which recently pulled together with input from nearly every department to turn 11 bars of steel into a solution to drilling concrete for electrode installation. Through nearly 4 hours of manufacturing per drill across 4 specialist machines, we heat-treated to nearly 1200°C, stress-relieved and straightened in order to create over 64 kilos worth of 2m long SDS drill bits. These were then packed and shipped nearly 2000 miles to Malta. Quite simply, that can’t be done without team-work and that’s why our team is so important.

Built in Quality

Built-in quality at every stage in the process is vital to us providing the consistency essential to our customers. We ensure our products are manufactured and engineered to the highest standards using technically robust designs and the best appropriate materials. That’s why our products are used globally, including on prestigious projects such as the Cairo International Airport – Terminal 3 Project.
