Designated an essential supplier to the construction trade during the pandemic, FFX sells a range of 90,000 power tools, accessories, fixings and consumables from brands including DeWalt, Makita and Bosch, online and from branches in Kent. Foresight, the private equity firm, invested £4 million in a 2015 buyout led by managing directors Tim Horrell, 54, and Patrick Ker, 66.
