CRAFTSMAN® Celebrates 95 Years of Building Pride 

American tool icon CRAFTSMAN®, a Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK) brand, is celebrating its 95th anniversary this month by thanking its customers – the homeowners, home builders, auto enthusiasts and master mechanics – with weeklong giveaways including a grand prize trip to the July 31 Indianapolis race. 

“CRAFTSMAN has a rich heritage that has been passed down proudly from generation to generation,” said Heather Kang, Global Chief Marketing Officer of Tools for Stanley Black & Decker. “For nearly a century, we have been the brand people trust to get the job done. Today’s CRAFTSMAN continues that legacy.”

Founded in the United States in 1927, CRAFTSMAN has been a leader in hand, power and outdoor tools and is known for standing behind its products with some of the most trusted and reliable warranties in the industry. In its nearly 100 years, CRAFTSMAN’s signature red tools have played a part in history, from the introduction of CRAFTSMAN electric drills in 1929 to the release of cordless electric riding mowers in 1974. Staple items such as a CRAFTSMAN hammer and screwdrivers even aided in the removal of part of the Berlin Wall. The American icon brand has evolved and expanded to incorporate new products and technologies, including lines such as the CRAFTSMAN V20* Cordless System, V-Series™ line of premium hand tools and its iconic S2000 storage units among others.
