Maryland-based DEWALT is celebrating the grand opening of power tool manufacturing at its facility in Greenfield. The company says it has created 135 jobs at the facility.
Stanley Black & Decker is the parent company of DEWALT.
“We’ve made big investments to make DEWALT power tools at our Greenfield facility, using materials from all over the world, for the first time in history. Our employees are proud to tell people who they work for, what they do and that they make products for the American worker right here in the United States,” said Jeff Ansell, Senior Vice President and Group Executive at Stanley Black & Decker. “We’re doing the right things, for the right reasons, the right way. And as we manufacture more and more tools in the United States using global materials, our productivity and our quality continues to improve.”
As part of the celebration, DEWALT has donated 70 power tools, hand tools and accessories to the Greenfield VFW.
