New BLACK+DECKER and STANLEY Brands Gaining Traction
Our namesake brands continue their evolution, building on robust legacies of pioneering innovation.
STANLEY tools have been an integral part of the tradesperson’s toolkit and the home for more than 170 years. The new STANLEY brand is fast becoming a leading, multi-industry brand—encompassing tools, security, engineered fastening, healthcare, infrastructure and other essential solutions. To our customers, the STANLEY brand promises Performance in Action, enabling greater efficiency and better overall outcomes for our customers and end users.
BLACK+DECKER invented handheld power tools more than a hundred years ago and grew into a workbench staple. The refreshed BLACK+DECKER brand puts a bold new stamp of innovation and reliability on an extensive range of consumer power tools, outdoor power equipment and home products.
These are two of the most recognizable, admired, respected and valuable brands in the world.
Brand Leverage Driving Success
DEWALT hand tools leveraged STANLEY’s expertise to fill a gap in the professional tool market. Tradespeople and other DEWALT enthusiasts now have a full line of hand tools, engineered to increase productivity and withstand real world jobsite conditions, that deliver the same performance pros have come to expect from all of their other DEWALT products. Similarly, new STANLEY-branded power tools, leveraging expertise and designs from DEWALT and Porter Cable, are meeting mid-price point developed market needs.
Brand extensions are one of the great and lasting benefits of a merger that redefined the global tools business just a few years ago.
Strategic brand extensions are leveraging product expertise and innovations across Stanley Black & Decker.
