    Default Stanley tools Sheffield November 2013




    Originaly 1843, Frederick Stanley started a small shop in New Britain, Connecticut, to manufacture bolts, hinges, and other hardware from wrought iron. With superior quality, consistent innovation, and rigorous operational improvement, Stanley’s company defined excellence, and so did his products.

    The Stanley Rule and Level Company was founded in 1857 by Henry Stanley in New Britain, Connecticut. In 1920, this company merged with the separate but related Stanley Works, founded by Henry Stanley's cousin Frederick Trent Stanley, and continued operating as its hand tools division.

    Stanley has been in Sheffield since 1937 with the acquisition of J.A Chapmans of Sheffield In 2008, the company consolidated a number of sites into a new facility at Hellaby near Rotherham, which apparently safeguarded a number of jobs, brought manufacture of Stanley products back to the UK from Asia.

    Since 2008 the site in Sheffield has been vacant but currently, part of the bottom floor is rented for storage whilst the rest of the site is used for Airsoft most weekends.



    Me & Nightcaller visited this site as me debut. We knew it was kinda ruined as a building but I wanted to see some street art that was more imaginative than tagging.

    Hope you enjoy my report.
