Stanley Black & Decker, the world's largest tools and storage company and leader in engineered fastening and security, will open a new 1.2-million-square-foot regional Distribution Center in the Town of Northlake, Denton County, Texas.

The new distribution center will service central and southern states with an array of power tools and hand tools, and employ more than 300 workers when it opens next month. Stanley Black & Decker’s new facility at AllianceTexas fits the company’s strategic plan of regionalizing our distribution footprint with large and well-located facilities.

Its close proximity to Fort Worth Alliance Airport, BNSF Railway’s Alliance Intermodal Facility, the FedEx Express Southwest Regional Hub and the UPS and FedEx Ground Hubs make it a very advantageous location for logistics operations.

“The expansion of our operations in Texas enables us to better serve our customers across the country with a centralized distribution hub for our world-renowned tools, manufactured at our 30 U.S. plants,” said Jeff Ansell, Executive Vice President & President for Stanley Black & Decker’s global tools & storage business. “Concurrently, this new distribution facility reinforces our long-standing commitment to manufacture in America as we continue to invest to deliver products for our customers with record speed.”
