After failing to organise a solo piss-up in a brewery :gay and not wanting to waste the early start I'd made, I headed up the road to Stanley Tools.

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 1937 Stanley Works entered the UK market with the acquisition of J.A Chapman of Sheffield
In 2008, the company consolidated a number of sites (3?) into a new facility at Hellaby near Rotherham, which apparently safeguarded a number of jobs, brought manufacture of Stanley products back to the UK from Asia

In 2010, Stanley and Black & Decker combined to form Stanley Black & Decker


Nice screensaver :thumb

The famous yellow and black handle

Hopefully this is what the investment in the new factory has stopped - reassembly of Chinese parts in the UK (no doubt to be stamped "Made in Sheffield" :mad:)
