Cardin to Visit Stanley Black & Decker in Towson
Senator to underscore importance of company’s recent community and campus investments during latest stop on “Made in Maryland” jobs tour
Thursday, August 21 at 2:00 PM, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.), a member of the Senate Committees on Finance and Small Business, will tour the 33-acre Towson campus of Stanley Black & Decker and hear from the company’s leaders on a variety of issues related to manufacturing. Two years after Stanley Black & Decker announced a $12 million round of investments in the Towson campus and pledged to keep workers at the facility, nearly 1,100 people work there, about the same number as before the March 2010 merger of Stanley Works and Black & Decker.
“Stanley Black & Decker has committed to modernizing its operations in several key ways, including reducing energy consumption and embracing green technologies. This is a company that is resilient and forward-looking, and one that will continue to notch new advancements right here in Maryland,” said Senator Cardin.

“From Volvo Truck Group to Paul Reed Smith Guitars, Flying Dog Brewery and many others, it has been tremendously helpful to for me to listen to the needs of local businesses and take real ideas back to Washington. The federal government should be a partner, not an obstacle, helping to assist these great companies as they strive to be the best and most innovative in their field,” Senator Cardin said. “’Made in Maryland’ is my way to highlight the diverse products being produced in our great state and companies that are reinvesting in their employees and our local communities.”
