Platinum Sponsors

Stanley Black & Decker’s (NYSE: SWK) commitment to its communities goes back hundreds of years. The company was founded by men who helped establish, build, and grow their communities, and in the ensuing years it has employed and associated itself with those who share the idea that community vitality is crucial to success.


The company’s Platinum Sponsorship of the Golden Kielbasa Veterans Open and so many other community-based causes across the globe are evidence of its ongoing commitment to its founders’ ideals.


In 1843, Frederick Stanley started a small shop in New Britain, Connecticut, to manufacture bolts, hinges, and other hardware from wrought iron. With superior quality, consistent innovation, and rigorous operational improvement, Stanley’s company defined excellence, and so did his products.


In 1910, S. Duncan Black and Alonzo G. Decker started their shop, similar in size at first, in Baltimore, Maryland. Six years later they changed the world by obtaining the world’s first patent for a portable power tool, and the company they built has been changing the world ever since.


Both companies grew in parallel over the ensuing decades, amassing an unparalleled family of brands and products and an even more impressive wealth of industry expertise.


In 2010, the two companies combined to form Stanley Black & Decker, to deliver the tools and solutions that industrial companies, professionals, and consumers count on to be successful when it really matters.


Just as it was in 1843, Stanley Black & Decker’s passion for excellence is seen around the world in its disciplined operations, purposeful business growth, loyal customer relationships and commitment to community. For more information, go to www.stanleyblackanddecker.com.
