fter seven years back in South Africa, one-tool company Stanley Black & Decker is confirming its place in the high-end tooling trade with a move to a permanent new home in Gosforth Park, Germiston, Johannesburg.
The trendy new space located at 10 Silverstone Street at Raceway Industrial Park acts as the new regional distribution warehouse as well as the stylish head office for Stanley Black & Decker’s ever-growing staff compliment across the Sub Saharan Africa region.
“The decision was taken to move, as the company is expanding rapidly,” said MD Yemi Fatunla. “An important consideration when choosing the space was that it should accurately reflect the brand as an exciting innovator in the tooling space,” he added.
Although the company has only recently moved, plans are already underway to build a large state-of-the-art experience centre to launch in July 2018. The centre will showcase the full extent of Stanley Black & Decker’s product range from hand tools to professional industrial power tools as well as offer demonstrations of their use across verticals such as aeronautics, industrial builds, automotive and DIY.
“Stanley Black & Decker is a world-leading provider of tools and storage, power tool accessories, commercial electronic security and engineered fastening systems, with unique growth platforms and a track record of consistent outperformance,” said Fatunla.
Everything ties back to our purpose … ’FOR THOSE WHO MAKE THE WORLD’. For the builders and protectors, for the makers and explorers, for those shaping and reshaping our world through hard work and inspiration, Stanley Black & Decker provides the tools and innovative solutions you can trust to get the job done.
“Our focus lies in strengthening our position as one of the world’s most innovative companies in areas including breakthrough innovation, digital excellence, commercial excellence, functional transformation, and operational excellence. The experience centre plays a pivotal role in this strategy as it allows clients to explore the capabilities of our products in areas they may not have previously considered,” said Fatunla.
