About Us

Proops Brothers Ltd is a family run business based in rural Leicestershire, supplying a vast range of tools for craft & hobby, DIY, model making, jewellery, metal & wood working. Our sister company, Linic Plastics Ltd, is based on the same site and manufactures many of the tools that we sell. 

Way back in 1946, members of the Proops family opened a shop on Tottenham Court Road, close to the major shopping district in London. They traded in War Surplus items as well as many other clearance, job lot lines. The Principle products were medical equipment and 'technical' items from aircraft such as instrumentation and electrical components. The shop also traded in radio spares, surplus engineering and woodworking tools.

In the late 1980's Proops Brothers was bought by the current owner, Nic Burdett who has built in into a thriving company of 'everything useful' for hobbyists, jewellers, craft makers and modelling enthusiasts. To date, Proops Brothers buys and manufactures quality tooling. We endeavour to offer outstanding value for money and great service to our community. 

Our Shop is at the heart of our local community, open 7:00am - 3:45pm Monday-Thursday and 7:00am-2:45pm on Fridays. Alternatively you can give us a call on 0116 2403400.
