This past weekend, Popular Woodworking Magazine is reporting that Delta Machinery, owned by Stanley Black & Decker, is being sold to the Taiwanese company, TOTY. As part of the sale, the company is being renamed to Delta Power Equipment.
If you've been doing woodworking for any period of time, you've likely heard of Delta Machinery. Founded in 1919, Delta has been producing woodworking equipment for over 90 years. Many people probably know the company as one of the main sponsors of The New Yankee Workshop, where their popular Unisaw was at the center of the workshop and used in most every episode.
While nothing will likely change in the short term, I look forward to seeing what this means for the company in the future.
What do you think of the sale of Delta?
