about us

We are a family owned company with 15 employees.
TOOL Hockey Shop was founded in 1999 by Olaf Maack and Tobias Ditzer (friends and former teammates in the first devision leauge (Bundesliga) from 1990-2007). The name of the company TOOL stands for TObias and OLaf.

Our company is taking on trainees and already had 5 trainees being educated to retail salesmen (some with CCI award). A 6th trainee just started in February 2015. Three of the five trainees who completed their education with us are currently also employed by us.

Based on our claim "home of hockey" TOOL Hockeyshop exclusively sells hockey equipment. No other sports – just field hockey. We always concern about the usability of products, check their value before we sell it and always aim to offer our customers a wide range of products and services. We also give a chance to some exotic and small brands that are otherwise sometimes hard to find on the hockey market.
We are always open and grateful for constructive criticism and suggestions for improvement and grew for now 16 years with the demands of the market.

The hockey family is important to us. Every customer is important to us. Hockey is our life ...
