Stanley Black & Decker just announced plans to build one of their largest manufacturing plants in Fort Mill.
Their new 345,000-square-foot $31 million facility will primarily manufacture DEWALT power tools for retail locations around the world. It will be located in the Lakemont Business Park in Fort Mill, S.C.
“On behalf of York County, we congratulate Stanley Black & Decker on the announcement of this new U.S.-based manufacturing operation,” commented York County Council Chairman Britt Blackwell. “We are thrilled to have this global manufacturer expand their footprint here in York County, and we look forward to the 500 jobs it will bring to our area in the years to come.”
With a manufacturing presence in the U.S. dating back to 1843, this new Fort Mill facility will allow Stanley Black & Decker to advance its “Make Where We Sell” strategy.
“We are proud to continuously make more product in the U.S.A., and even prouder to be the world’s largest and America’s largest tool company,” commented Black & Decker’s president Jeff Ansell.
