Who we Are

Arbutus Tools & Woodworking Machinery has deep roots tracing back to 1982, starting with our inaugural store in Brandon, MB. Our mission was clear from the beginning: to redefine the woodworking tool store by offering a superior selection of machinery and tools. 

"Good, Better, and Best" is our motto, allowing us to cater to a diverse range of customers, from hobbyists to professional craftsmen, without compromising on quality. Our focus on long-term value means we're committed to providing products that not only meet your immediate requirements but also offer lasting durability and performance.

In 2008, we expanded by introducing Felder Machinery Imports to Nanaimo, establishing the premier destination for quality woodworking tools on the island.

Our evolution has been driven by a commitment to excellence and diversification. Today, we proudly offer an expanded range of machinery brands and tools. This growth prompted a rebranding to Arbutus Tools & Woodworking Machinery, a name that reflects our comprehensive offerings and the coastal region we serve.

We are honored to represent industry-leading brands such as Festool, Mirka, Fuji, Amana Tool, Powermatic, SawStop, Laguna Tools, SuperMax Tools, TSO Products, Odie's Oil, Shaper Tools, Yeti Tool, Vectric Software, FS Tool, Format 4, Felder, Hammer, and more.

Whether you're a solo craftsman or part of a leading multinational corporation, our product range is designed to meet your needs, enhancing quality, productivity, and profitability.

Our Philosophy underscores our commitment to fostering long-term relationships based on trust and respect with our customers. We achieve this through a combination of innovative products, technical consultation, and unwavering after-sales service and support, ensuring our solutions continue to meet your needs well into the future.
