Social Responsibility


Our communities have always been central to who we are. You can trace the roots of our company’s impact as far back as our founding in 1843. We have been proud to carry on a legacy that is built on helping every community rise, and now, we have begun to embrace a greater commitment to social responsibility everywhere we do business.

“We see a great and growing need for responsible businesses on the global stage, and we intend to be a leader in this respect.”
Jim Loree, President and CEO

As a leader in our industry and in our communities, we are proud of our accomplishments, but we will never believe we have done enough.

Today we see a world around us that more than ever can use the help of concerned companies willing and able to make a difference. With our time, our people, our tools and our monetary support, we are helping institutions and organizations that make the world a better place.

Around the globe, our people help build and rebuild homes and devastated communities. We donate tools and sustain tool-sharing programs to respond to emergencies.

We also help teachers teach and students—the next generation—learn high-paying, useful skills.

As citizens of the world, we are committed to making tomorrow better. We are dedicated to the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, and we strive to extend that dedication to our communities.

We do good in the world because you do good in the world. We are here to empower you to do great things, and to give you the tools to do it.

We are for those who make the world™.

Building a Better Tomorrow
Every day, we make an impact in communities around the world. And it’s not just the homes we help build with our tools, or the schools we protect with our security systems. It’s also a commitment to stepping up and bettering our communities.
