History of Stanley

In 1843, Frederick Stanley opened his first shop in New Britain, USA, manufacturing small hardware items from wrought iron.  Then, with sheer determination, continual improvement and consistent innovation the company grew into what was known then as “The Stanley Works”.  With a passion for excellence and loyal customer relationships, Stanley Works continued to grow and acquired many successful businesses along the way.

In 1937, they entered the UK market and went from strength to strength as a global name. 

More recently in 2010, Stanley merged with Black & Decker, becoming Stanley Black & Decker, the world’s largest hand and power tool company.  

Stanley Black & Decker, headquartered in Connecticut, USA, now employ 52,000 people globally, operate in over 175 countries and in 2014 achieved total revenues in excess of $11 billion.  Very impressive results.


Is Stanley a good choice for trade?

Absolutely, Stanley pride themselves on their products and actively work alongside real tradespeople to see how their products perform in order to discover any areas for improvement.  So you know, you are buying the very best hand tools, tried and tested by Stanley themselves.

Stanley Brand Values

With a strong commitment to social responsibility, Stanley are extremely proud of their company values both socially and environmentally and have been recognised along the way by winning many awards for diversity, sustainability and leadership to name a few.

They strive to create value beyond profits and are heavily involved in many projects including improving the communities in which their employees live, helping people gain cutting edge vocational and trade skills, diversity & inclusion and of course environmental sustainability.

In 1925, The Stanley Works built the Farmington River Power Plant that’s still in operation today.  Originally the power was routed to another factory but now it is routed back to the grid for energy credits.  The plant averages 32 million kilo-watt hours of electricity generation a year, which is enough to power approximately 2000 homes.  Very impressive and a prime example of their dedication to sustainability.
