History

TSL has built an enviable reputation over the past 30 years for supplying quality and affordable products to schools and colleges across the UK and abroad, backed up by outstanding customer service and technical/after-sales support.

The company was launched in 1986 by Design & Technology teachers Michael Roberts and Roger Weeks who founded the company to supply products to schools to meet the needs of a developing design & technology curriculum.

In 2019, TSL became a part of the WF Education Group to offer you a more complete, more relevant offer - focused on innovative and intelligent solutions and spaces.

SAME team, SAME passion!

We have not changed, only our offer has evolved. You will always find our team available to take good care of your enquiries and orders and our in-house design team will support you to deliver your projects, regardless of the space, regardless of the size.

Our success means that we are now a leading supplier to schools and colleges of a much wider range of equipment including tools, materials and resources covering major curriculum areas of Design & Technology, CAD/CAM and Engineering, Textiles, and Food Technology.

A specialist projects division of the company was created in 2002, providing the latest and best workshop machinery and equipment for schools. In more recent years, this has expanded to meet the requirements of build and refurbishment projects under the UK Government’s ‘Building Schools for the Future’ initiative. Through our team of dedicated Project Managers, we have successfully installed hundreds of educational workshops and technology rooms throughout the UK and internationally.

Based in the UK and France and supported by our parent company, Wall Family Enterprise Inc in the United States, our customers benefit from the cumulative expertise, knowledge and passion of our teams around the world.

Our European Head Office and 9000m₂ warehouse facility are based in the heart of Shropshire.
