The Tool Bay Team


Hey, I'm Matt, the founder of Tool Bay Direct. After a decade working as a marine engineer, dealing with the high seas and heavy machinery, I've collected my fair share of stories, scars, and skills. All that time away from my family got me thinking—there had to be a better way to marry my passion for engineering with being present at home. That's where Tool Bay Direct comes in.

We’re not just any engineering machinery supplier. I started this to share my hands-on experience and help you find the best tools for the job. Whether you're in the thick of it every day or fine-tuning a passion project, I know what these machines are about because I've been in your shoes.

When you reach out to us, chances are I'll be the one picking up. I'm here to offer not just a product, but my knowledge and insights to make sure you're equipped for success, all while keeping those important home fires burning.

So, let's talk tools, projects, and how to get the best of both worlds. I'm here for it, and I can't wait to help you bring your vision to life.




Say hello to Jayden, my co-founder at Tool Bay Direct. Before teaming up, he steered a successful e-commerce business for two years, mastering the digital landscape with ease. Our paths merged a year ago, and it was clear: my hands-on machinery expertise plus his online business savvy equaled a perfect match.

Together, we’re focused on delivering quality engineering tools through a seamless online experience. He’s the force behind our smooth operations, ensuring you find what you need efficiently and without hassle.
