A Legacy of Longevity, Service & Sales Support

Founded in 1843 by Frederick T. Stanley in New Britain, Connecticut, the Stanley Works began as a small manufacturer of hinges, bolts and other door hardware. The earliest credits include the first hinge hasp, the first crate hinge, the first hinge with reinforced joint, the first "blind" hinge and in 1899, the first patent for a ball bearing hinge. Today, Stanley Hardware provides more than 7,500 builders hardware products and focuses on manufacturing the best hardware for its valued customers. Stanley Hardware focuses on three main categories of excellence, providing our customers with the best products and service in the industry.

Providing the best hardware and service to our valued customers.

Quality & Innovation

  • We manufacture high quality products that exceed ANSI & BHMA certification standards 

  • We are the prime manufacturer of the majority of products we sell


  • We offer a nationally backed warehouse program allowing precise control over inventory

  • We have multiple distribution facilities across the country, resulting in shorter lead times

Sales Support

Merchandising & Marketing Support

Stanley Hardware provides a cohesive suite of merchandising components developed to create a total aisle experience for consumers and retailers alike. Our packaging and design system was created to include the greatest amount of SKUs while eliminating wasted space. By providing a larger variety of card sizes, we allow retailers to fit a greater amount of product into the set, which ultimately means customers see a higher ROI per square foot. Our innovative design makes our planograms completely scalable – and they can be customized based on each customer’s unique needs.

Stanley’s merchandising system includes free merchandising aids and POP, along with ongoing upgrades including clip strips, counter top displays, end caps and cross merchandising opportunities.

With Stanley Hardware, the service goes beyond sales support. We have a dedicated marketing team that is here to help with your needs. We provide custom category sell sheets and marketing collateral that can be created quickly and easily with the click of a button. Contact your sales rep to learn more about our custom collateral and merchandising options.

Stanley Hardware® Transition

We recently transitioned the Stanley® brand of builder’s hardware to National Hardware™, our brother brand. Under the same leadership and manufacturing, this name change ​will have minimal impact on the goods and services that we offer as the leader in builder’s hardware. We made this change to bring you, the customer, better products and services through higher productivity, a streamlined focus, and a one brand strategy. We thank you for being a valuable Stanley Hardware customer and appreciate your cooperation with our business during this time. We look forward to exceeding your service needs as a National Hardware customer.
