Stanley is the world's leading manufacturer of hand tools, power tools and accessories and is also one of the flagship brands within the Stanley Black & Decker group.
Since its foundation in 1843, Stanley has been committed to providing professionals around the world with products that are both intelligently engineered and durable, groundbreaking and up to the task at hand.

For more than 170 years, Stanley has taken responsibility for bringing new levels of performance to users. We have created some of the most useful tools ever, including Bailey planes, Surform surface preparation tools, the PowerLock tape measure and most recently, FatMax power tools. Today, the company is still the industry leader in innovative hand tools - thanks to our continued focus on the outstanding performance we expect from every product, employee and our company.
While Stanley's tools division may represent everything Stanley is best known for, Stanley also includes other key business areas including Stanley Security, Stanley Hardware, Stanley Engineered Fastening and Stanley Infrastructure.
