In 1843, Frederick Trent Stanley started the company that would become the largest tools and storage company in the world. 175 years later, STANLEY still designs and manufactures reliable tools so consumers across industries can feel confident completing jobs of any scale. On this milestone anniversary, STANLEY is celebrating its loyal customers and their projects – the small moments and big accomplishments – with Built With STANLEY.

“The STANLEY family is thrilled to be celebrating its 175th anniversary this year, and we couldn’t have achieved this milestone without the customers that use and trust in our products day in and day out,” said Lee McChesney, president, Hand Tools, Accessories & Storage at Stanley Black & Decker. “STANLEY has always prided itself on designing tools that can withstand the test of time, and we look forward to providing transformative products that help our customers continue to build and improve the world around us.”

To commemorate this milestone anniversary, STANLEY is inviting customers to submit images of their proudest projects (old or new) and stories by tagging #BuiltWithSTANLEY to demonstrate how STANLEY has helped build our world. By submitting their projects, customers have the opportunity to receive a limited-edition 175th anniversary STANLEY Silver Tape Rule with a commemorative leather pouch.
