Black and Decker power tools have a long history of innovative and effective power tool production. The company was founded in 1910, and have since patented the world’s first pistol-grip drill (1914), the world’s first consumer drill (1946), and the world’s first cordless drill (1961).
Over the years their company has acquired both DeWalt and Porter-Cable, two highly respected professional power tool brands, and in 2010 merged with Stanley to form the Stanley Black and Decker corporation.
They employ 26,200 people worldwide, operate in over 100 countries, have 44 manufacturing sites in 11 different countries, and are the world’s largest producers of portable electric power tools and power tool accessories.
Black and Decker power tools are designed for DIY/home use.
Black and Decker have different warranty periods for both corded and cordless power tools. They offer a 2 year repair warranty on all their corded power tools and a 4 year repair warranty on all their cordless power tools.
