Frederick Stanley started Stanley Works in a small shop in New Britain, Connecticut in 1843 where he produced bolts, hinges and other high quality hardware made from wrought Iron. Duncan Black and Alonzo Decker founded the Black & Decker Corporation in 1910. 6 years later Black & Decker held the world’s first patent for a portable power-tool – a hand-held drill combining a pistol grip and trigger switch.

Over the next few decades both companies acquired or developed an un-paralled family of iconic brands and trusted products, and, finally, the two companies merged on March 12, 2010 becoming Stanley Black & Decker.

The merger meant that the two companies were joining forces to bring together the best-of-the-best and to offer practical, meaningful product and services that made life easier – empowering people to do better, safer, more significant work. The success of Stanley Black & Decker can be traced to the company’s ability to innovate and their dedication to excellence. Still the company believes that there is much more that they can do for the world and for those who make the world what it is. So across its businesses, Stanley Black & Decker is investing in breakthrough innovations, digital excellence without forgetting to strive for excellence and social responsibility.

For the builders and protectors, for the makers and explorers, for those shaping and reshaping our world through hard work and inspiration, Stanley Black & Decker provides the tools and innovative solutions you can trust to get the job done—and we have since 1843.
