The Black & Decker Company was founded almost a hundred years ago by S. Duncan Black and Alonzo G. Decker. The company’s main business then revolved around a small machine shop in Baltimore, Maryland. It was called the Black & Decker Manufacturing Company. By 1917, the Black & Decker Company came out with their first patented hand-held drill that included a specification for a unique pistol grip and trigger switch.
In 1922, the company was able to build an assembly operation, sales, service and warehouse facility in Canada named the Black & Decker Manufacturing Company, Ltd. That year also marked the Company’s new addition of an electric screwdriver to its ever-growing list of products.
Today, Black & Decker Corporation is based in Towson, Maryland, USA. It is one of the world’s top leading manufacturers and designers that imports power tools, accessories, hardware and home improvement products, and technically advanced fastening systems. Black & Decker manufactures and distributes various products that are found in the following categories: Power tools, energy, hand tools, outdoor, cleaning, automotive, portable power, home appliances, repair books, painting and crafts, shredders, storage, and personal protective equipment.
In its power tool line up are air compressors, combo kits, corded and cordless drills, grinders, hand tools, laser levels, lighting, measuring tools, nailers, painting & craft tools, planers, powered hand tools, routers, sanders, circular saws, jigsaws, reciprocating saws, screwdrivers, stud sensors & detectors, VPX, and workmates.
There are also cordless tools for your yard work such as cordless mowers, hedge trimmers, weed trimmers, and more. The Black & Decker cordless weed trimmers has more than enough trimmer power for keeping areas around the house neat and tidy. The Black & Decker chainsaw aptly called the Alligator, though small has the clamping ability to bite down and hold efficiently whatever wood or branch you are cutting or trimming down.
With its cordless screwdrivers that are powered with lithium batteries, it offers more run time and fast charging capabilities to let you do the task at hand quickly and effectively. Some have LED lights built in them that make them very handy when working in low-light areas such as those on the insides of a cabinet or drawer.
Black & Decker and Firestorm cordless products come with rechargeable batteries and chargers that range from 9.6v to 24v, and in stem styles and spring loaded slide pack styles. The battery chargers can be used for all voltages that include a fast 1 hour charging capability, multi-voltage charging, and dual port charging.
