THE STANLEY® STORY
For more than 170 years, Stanley has been nothing if not consistent. Starting with its 1843 founding by Frederick Stanley, it’s been headquartered in New Britain, Connecticut. And over that time, it’s released a long list of handy gadgets for contractors and home DIYers, from rules and levels to hammers and other hand tools. Trust in Stanley products has even gone as far as outer space: the Apollo 11 mission’s lunar landing gear had a Stanley PowerLock tape rule on board.
