How Did Black and Decker Ladder Start?

Founded in 1910 by S. Duncan Black and Alonzo G. Decker as a small machine shop in Baltimore, Black and Decker didn’t gain much attention until 1917. It was at this time that the company invented the portable electric drill and obtained a patent for a hand-held drill that combined a pistol grip and a trigger switch. The first factory was then opened in Towson, where the company is still headquartered to this day. In 1941, the company was granted another patent for a portable power driven tool unit that is still the famous drill known today.

While Black and Decker had been using a hexagon as its logo since 1912, the company did not receive its first U.S. trademark until 1949. The company went on to use the hexagon, which was meant to represent the hexagonal nut as a universal fastener, as its logo until 2014. Throughout its history, Black and Decker has also played an important role in American history. In 1943, the company received the Army-Navy “E” Award for production. In all the company was awarded four World War II citations. The company was also inducted into the Space Foundation’s Space Technology Hall of Fame for its cordless power tool achievements and its contributions to NASA’s Gemini and Apollo programs.

Over the years, Black and Decker have acquired a number of other companies. In 1960, the company acquired DeWalt from American Machine and Foundry. 24 years later, they acquired a small-appliance business from General Electric Company. In 1989, Black and Decker acquired Emhart Corporation, which included the brand names of Price Pfister faucets, Kwikset, POP rivets, Molly wall anchors, True Temper golf club shafts and more. In 2010, the company merged with Stanley Works to become Stanley Black & Decker. Seven years later, the company purchased Craftsman from Sears. Current brands and subsidiaries of the company include:

  • Black and Decker Firestorm
  • Craftsman
  • DeWalt
  • Emhart Teknologies
  • Oldham Blades
  • Porter-Cable
