In 1843, Frederick Stanley started a small shop in New Britain, Connecticut, to manufacture bolts, hinges and other hardware of high quality from wrought iron. In 1910, Duncan Black and Alonzo Decker started their shop in Baltimore, Maryland, and six years later obtained the world’s first patent for a portable power tool. Over the years the two companies amassed an unparalleled family of iconic brands and trusted products. In 2010, they came together as Stanley Black & Decker, a leading global diversified industrial. Known for superior quality, continual innovation and rigorous operational discipline, we remain driven by a passion for excellence and a commitment to serve the builders, makers and protectors of the world.
