I just confirmed this morning that the Delta brand of woodworking tools and machines has been sold by Stanley Black & Decker to a start-up group that will be based in South Carolina. For full details read my blog.

Bob, It seems it is not a start up
"It turns out that Stanley Black & Decker will be selling the Delta brand to a Taiwanese company called TOTY and it will be renamed Delta Power Equipment. The New company will be run by someone familiar to the industry, Bryan Whiffen, who was Sr. VP for product development at TTI. TTI as we know, is the owner of Milwaukee Power tool and Ryobi. We shouldn't see much of a change in production, because according to Popular Woodworking, TOTY makes many of the tools already sold by Stanley Black & Decker, Craftsman, and Ryobi."
