Stanley Black & Decker in the U.S.

We employ a large U.S.-based workforce and are proud of our expanding manufacturing footprint in the U.S.

While we support the U.S. government’s goals of improving America’s international trade relationships, in order to continue to grow, manufacture, and create jobs in the U.S., we encourage a swift re-balancing of these relationships, and an end to the current tariff regime and its unintended consequences for companies like ours.

Founded and headquartered in Connecticut, Stanley Black & Decker has manufactured and created jobs in the U.S. since our founding in 1843. We operate 49 manufacturing facilities across the U.S. and collectively employ about 17,300 U.S.-based workers.

We continue to increase our U.S. manufacturing footprint and today roughly 50 percent of the products that we manufacture and sell in the U.S., are made in the U.S. with global materials. For example, tape measures in New Britain, Connecticut, CRAFTSMAN toolboxes in Sedalia, Missouri and DEWALT power tools in Jackson, Tennessee and Ft. Mill, South Carolina.
