STOCKade’s origins were almost by accident when Paslode New Zealand created power nailing technology for rural fences in 1998. During that time, Paslode NZ was already a reputable supplier of powder-actuated tools (PAT), specifically nailing solution, under the ITW Construction Products Group.
Upon developing the innovative pneumatic fencing staple gun, which was the first of its kind, builders and contractors saw the benefits right away. It remained a mystery for quite a while until 2007, when more research was put into the product. Paslode NZ worked with fencing contractors. The result of the collaboration was a genuine fence stapling tool.
Two years later, STOCKade’s first-ever product was introduced to the masses. It was the ST315, a power stapler unlike any other during its invention. The target sector was the livestock fencing market in rural areas.
As expected, the STOCKade ST315 was a huge hit. Contractors, builders, farmers, and everyone else with a need for a power stapler. It prompted the brand to seek more customers outside New Zealand, distributing the product to North America, including the United States and Canada. STOCKade also found more users in the United Kingdom and Australia.
The brand is known for its dedication to research before presenting new products. STOCKade’s passion lies in developing more efficient solutions in fencing. Two of the most popular products are ST400 and ST400i. They were designed for fencing contractors, as well as farmers, who were searching for portable and powerful fencing staplers that do not need hoses and compressors.
