Frederick Stanley opened a modest shop in New Britain, Connecticut, in 1843 to produce high-quality bolts, hinges, and other hardware from wrought iron. He was the first American to do so. Beginning in 1910 in Baltimore, Maryland, Duncan Black and Alonzo Decker established their own shop, and six years later they were awarded the world’s first patent for a portable power tool. Together, these two enterprises have built an unrivalled family of iconic brands and trusted products throughout the course of their history. Stanley Black & Decker, a leading global diversified industrial company, was formed in 2010 when they joined forces. The world’s leading manufacturer of superior quality building materials, continuous innovation, and strict operational discipline, we are driven by a passion for perfection and a dedication to serve the world’s builders, makers, and protectors.
