Stanley is without a doubt one of the most recognised names in the UK industry. Part of the larger Stanley Black & Decker Corporation, Stanley is a leading brand of hand tools, power tools and a wide variety of accessories some of which you can find right here at JJ Roofing.
Stanley has been responsible for discovering new levels of user performance for more than 170 years now by creating some of the most innovative and useful tools available on the market. This includes the Bailey Plane, the FatMax, the Surform and the PowerLock line of products just to name a few.
When it comes to longevity, few brands can compete with Stanley. Founded by Frederick Stanley in the new United States in 1843, Stanley started out as a small shop that manufactured bolts, door hinges and wrought iron hardware. Then known as The Stanley Works, the company was committed to excellence from day one making it their mission to offer superior quality, design innovation and rigorous operational improvement.
As a company, Stanley has never abandoned these principles and are now world renowned for delivering powerful tools that help professionals from a wide variety of industries build, repair, protect and maintain valuable things. Stanley’s efficiency is proven by its loyal customer base and continued growth that includes expanding into new areas such as security, hardware, engineered fastening as well as infrastructure.
Every single tool that Stanley creates is purpose built to help you work faster, better and smarter. This has been achieved by having discovery teams work closely with real tradespeople taking their expertise carefully into account when designing new products. Stanley understands the importance of feedback from end users both amateur and professional which is why you can rest assured knowing that each product is specifically designed for maximum efficiency and ease of use.
On top of their legendary work in the tool industry, Stanley is also actively involved with a variety of sponsorship partnerships including FC Barcelona, Joe Gibbs Racing and MotoGP (the world’s premier motorcycle racing series).
In 2010, The Stanley Works combined with Black & Decker to form the new Stanley Black & Decker becoming the world’s largest global provider of hand tools, power tools and accessories operating in 175 countries with over 52,000 employees. The new merger has not changed the initial mission of Stanley which is to continually develop and deliver solutions that consumers, industry professionals and companies can rely on to be successful every single time.
