RGB Building Supplies’ Exeter branch is inviting local trades to help protect their equipment against theft with a free tool marking event on Wednesday 10th April. 

Between 8am and 2pm, Devon and Cornwall Police will be in the branch giving advice and handing out free tool marking kits supplied by RGB. The kits help deter theft, make it more difficult for stolen equipment to be sold on, and help reunite tools with their owners.  

Visitors will also be able to pick up stickers to put in vehicles warning that there are no items of value inside. 

Paul West, Branch Manager at RGB Exeter, commented:

“We’re extremely keen to support our customers’ livelihoods by adding to the services we offer. Tool theft can have a devastating impact on business, disrupting work schedules, affecting customer relations and causing a huge amount of stress. We’re therefore pleased to be working with Devon and Cornwall Police to help to deter thefts by covering the cost of the tool marking kits and the stickers, and we look forward to welcoming local trades along on the day.”

RGB’s Exeter branch is located Alphinbrook Road.
