Superior products, customer focus, brand strength

Stanley today is a leading diversified industrial growth company, but our 19th-century roots in the construction and do-it-yourself businesses remain as strong as ever. While we weren't immune to the challenges faced by commercial and residential builders and do-it-yourselfers across the globe in 2009, our $1.3 billion CDIY platform continued to evolve in the face of industry headwinds.

  • We gained market share and outperformed the market in terms of revenue and profit in 2009
  • Our new-product launches drove $60 million in new revenue and included our first-ever Bostitch Hand Tool launch
  • With a $17 million improvement in CDIY profit in 2009 over 2008, we're already seeing the benefits of a market recovery, and there's no doubt that we have the fundamental strength to stay ahead of the pack

Stanley Black & Decker
On top of all that, we announced in 2009 a transformative transaction that will have a major positive impact on the future of our CDIY business — our combination with Black & Decker. This transaction means we're bringing together the world leader in power tools with our market-leading stable of hand tools under a single organization — making Stanley the complete solution for CDIY customers around the globe.

Advancing the CDIY marketplace
Builders, creators and do-it-yourselfers are our inspiration. We strive every day to create and improve upon the products they need and want to do their jobs better and faster, and we never forget the importance of innovation, practical application and quality. In 2009, we launched over 250 new products to meet their needs, and 2010 will bring dozens more. It's all a part of our commitment to doing things better.
