    • Innovative fastener and tool design and manufacture continue to maintain Stanley Bostitch® as leaders in fastening solutions
    • Stanley acquired Bostitch, another company with an outstanding heritage in the fastening industry, in 1987, as part of its drive to become a world leader in fastening applications across a wide range of industries
    • Founded in 1896 as the Boston Wire Stitch Company they produced treadle operated wire stitching machines for fastening books, calendars and hat boxes etc
    • The original machines used pre-formed staples, which had to be individually fed along a track
    • The development of staples collated with paper and then glue saw the start of collated fasteners, which greatly increased efficiency
    • As more industrial stapling machines were developed, the company changed its name to BOSTITCH
    • These original collated staples were the precursors of today’s Stanley Bostitch range which now includes collated nails, brads, staples, rings and clips
    • With the acquisition of the Calwire Company in 1961, which manufactured staplers and a T nailer, Bostitch moved into the wood fastening market
    • Bostitch then introduced innovative new products, such as the first ever coil nailers that revolutionised the pallet making industry, and a roofing coil nailer for the construction industry
    • The purchase of Bostitch by Stanley saw the birth of the STANLEY BOSTITCH brand, now renowned across the world for its fastening solutions
    • Further acquisitions over the years have brought a range of quality brands under the Stanley Bostitch name
    • These include Atro, a major European tool and fastening manufacturer, and Hartco and Spenax, important fastening solution providers for the bedding and automotive industries respectively
