By Prasun Bose

Stanley Black & Decker has released its financial figures for the second quarter, with the power tools specialist achieving a 10% increase in net sales.

The Connecticut-based manufacturer surpassed expectations by reaching $3.2bn worth of sales in the three months up to the end of June, a 7% rate of organic growth.

This figure exceeded analysts’ predictions and has resulted in Stanley Black & Decker raising its yearly forecast.

Sales of tools and storage were behind the increase, with that particular area of business generating 17% more money than it did in the same quarter in 2016.

“I am pleased with our team's solid execution, and with our continued efforts to become known as a leading innovator, deliver top-quartile financial performance and elevate our commitment to social responsibility.”
