Stanley Black & Decker joins British Home Enhancement Trade Association

Heavyweight brand Stanley Black & Decker has joined the British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA).

With its UK head office in Slough, Stanley Black & Decker provides engineered fastening systems, tools, storage and commercial electronic security.

Black + Decker is reportedly the inventor of the first portable electric drill as well as the world’s first to bring a cordless drill and cordless hedge trimmer to market.

“Our mission has always been to provide tools and solutions that make life easier and the home enhancement sector is strategically very important," said Mark Smiley, General Manager UK and ROI. "With the networking opportunities and guest speaker forums which BHETA offers, I am sure joining the association will be a great move.”

BHETA’s DIY sector director Paul Grinsell added: “This is terrific news. Stanley Black + Decker is a world-class company thanks to its long history of product innovation, technological excellence and bold global approach. It will be great to welcome Mark’s team to BHETA events and the Stanley Black + Decker name can only be good for our credibility as we continue to build our relationships with retailers.”
