Screwfix Forum Celebrates 10 Years

The Screwfix Community forum is celebrating 10 years of bringing thousands of tradesmen together and helping them find answers to their burning tool and trade questions.

Screwfix launched the site back in 2003, before social networking sites were commonplace. The aim of the site was to unite tradesmen and provide them with an online space to pose and answer questions, seek advice and share experiences.

The forum has gone from strength-to-strength during the last decade, featuring over 1.2 million posts and more than 136,000 threads. The site is home to all trades, from electricians and plumbers to builders and carpenters, and currently has over 100,000 registered users.

John Mewett, marketing director at Screwfix, comments: “We initially launched the site to offer tradesmen a space to connect online and share best practice and the positive response and growing levels of engagement with the site has been great.

“Our customers sit at the heart of our business and customer insight provides the backbone of everything we do here at Screwfix. Our community forum plays a vital role in this and we are delighted that it has proved such a success. In fact, it would take the average reader over 100 hours just to read one word from every post listed since 2003! We encourage all tradesmen to log on and see for themselves what the forum has to offer.”

The Screwfix Community forum offers a friendly and supportive place to share expertise, ask advice, and enjoy ‘socialising’ online with people who share a common interest. Users are encouraged to debate the topics and issues of the day. For further information visit the forum.
