About Us

"To Provide The Best Value In Tools"

We are a 100% Family Owned Canadian Business. KMS Tools is the only store of its kind in Canada. We have been in business for over 25 years and have the largest selection of tools anywhere.


Starting in his basement, Stan Pridham saw the need for a tool store that could provide a wide range of tools and knowledgeable sales staff. KMS has grown to 9 stores across Western Canada and Stan's continued commitment to our customers, and hands-on approach, is the framework of our business model today.


Those who know KMS will testify our store is unlike any other. Low shelves allow our customers to easily find sales staff and gain hands-on access to all our tools. Along with our classes we also offer in store demo stations for our customers to try the tools out.


Join the KMS CLUB and ensure you save up to 30% on your purchases and earn in store credit on all your purchases. You are then eligible to receive our MONTHLY 48 PAGE FLYER subscription and HOT DEALS email notifications at no charge.


Each month we hold a 3 Day Sale that features competitive pricing, on-site Vendor Representatives, new product demonstrations and FREE Smokies and Pop.


Our experienced INDUSTRIAL& EDUCATIONAL SALES DIVISION can meet all your business & school needs on site. Whether it is a large Tender or Personal Insurance Claim to a Shop Setup or Safety Consultation, our Order Desk and Outside Sales Staff are equipped to meet your needs.


All our locations feature Welding Gas & Cylinder filling stations and CUSTOM AND AUTOMOTIVE PARTS for Hot Rods and Classic Cars. You can also search for a deal in our Clearance Center department which features products from: surplus, used, consignment, liquidations and close outs.
