The 80,000 square-foot facility houses 350 employees, who were brought in from various locations throughout the Indianapolis metro area.

The company says the new headquarters will become a showcase for its latest security products and services. The facility's amenities area also designed to attract and retain talent in the area. Jim Loree, president and chief executive officer of Stanley Black & Decker, says the grand opening of the facility is an "important milestone in the continued growth and evolution" of the company's security business.

"We are excited to bring our employees together here in one location in Indiana, where we have maintained a strong presence for nearly two decades," said Loree.
