BOSTON, May 20, 2022—Tool manufacturer Stanley Black & Decker will use Tulip Interface’s Frontline Operations Platform to provide digital manufacturing capabilities for its factories around the world, according to a release from Tulip Interfaces.
Tulip’s platform aligns with Stanley Black & Decker’s vision for the future of operational technology–a cloud-native platform with no code capabilities that enables the manufacturing workforce. The platform is said to help manufacturers equip their frontline workforces with the tools needed to improve productivity, achieve higher quality, and increase efficiency.
Stanley Black & Decker has expanded its use of the platform across multiple sites and has seen significant growth and value in its investment, the company said in the release. The manufacturer has been a Tulip customer since 2018.
“Our partnership with Tulip helps drive long-term value creation,” said Jane Arnold, vice president of manufacturing technology at Stanley Black & Decker, in the release. “Deploying Tulip globally epitomizes our relentless commitment to best-in-class advanced manufacturing solutions and operations agility.”
Tulip Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder Natan Linder said the mutual investment is a “long-term partnership” between the two companies.
“The Stanley Black & Decker team is deeply committed to supporting their people. They are leaders in operational innovation, and I’m looking forward to seeing how they leverage Tulip to drive manufacturing excellence,” Linder said in the release.
Stanley Ventures, Stanley Black & Decker’s venture wing, joined Tulip’s $100 million Series C funding round in support of the partnership. STANLEY X, the company’s innovation arm, will work with the teams to seek additional growth opportunities. Jane Arnold will join Tulip’s Board of Directors as an observer.
