Untitled Document

Carbatec are excited to announce the new look Carbatec Logo & Brand Identity which is being launch alongside our greatly anticipated October 2014 Product Guide!

Carbatec is proud of its heritage as a leading retailer of woodworking tools and machinery.

As a company, we exist to provide people with the tools, knowledge and resources to do just that - in an authentic, engaging and innovative way.

We want to inspire people in the community learn new skills, foster partnerships, share their passion and get the most out of their woodworking. We are starting the journey towards providing this and become The Home of Woodworking - where our customers needs and experience are paramount. Our new logo, brand look and feel signifies the beginning of this journey.

Over the coming months you will see our new logo and brand identity rolled out through communications you have with Carbatec - starting with the launch of our much anticipated October 2014 Product Guide. We hope you like our new logo and branding and the new Carbatec vision it signifies.
