Marketing Plan DeWalt Industrial Tool Company 1. Executive Summary Black & Decker's power tools division represents the largest product group, accounting for 29% of the company’s US revenue. The executive summary in Section 1 offers a succinct overview of the key aspects of the offering. The power tools market comprises three segments: consumer, industrial, and tradesmen. Although Black & Decker is the market leader in the consumer and industrial segments, it has only 9% share of the tradesmen segment. Furthermore, despite the strength of Black & Decker’s brand and the quality of its tools, the company profitability in this segment was virtually zero. This plan outlines our key marketing activities directed at establishing Black & Decker’s market leadership in the tradesmen segment by launching a new set of products and services under the DeWalt brand. Section 2 follows the 5-C framework and is focused on the broad market. 2. Situation Overview 2.1. Market Overview 2.1.1. Customers The power tools market comprises three types of customers: (1) consumers buyers who use power tools around the house, (2) tradesmen - small businesses and independent contractors, such as carpenters, plumbers, and electricians working in residential construction - using power tools on the job; and (3) industrial buyers, such as companies that purchase power tools for employee use. The key attributes that customers typically consider when making a choice are: power, reliability, service, brand image, and price. The relative importance of these factors for each of the three segments is shown below: Key Customer Segments in the Power Tool Market Attributes Customer segments Consumers Tradesmen Industrial Power Low High High Reliability Low High High Service Low High Medium Brand Medium High Low Price High Low Medium 2.1.2.

Black & Decker’s five largest product groups are: power tools (29% of Black & Decker’s US sales), household products (15%), information systems and services (11%), outdoor products (9%), and security hardware (9%). Black & Decker is the market share leader in the power tools segment, which is the largest contributor to Black & Decker’s growth. The Black & Decker brand was frequently ranked among the top ten most powerful brands in the United States. Black & Decker targets all three customer segments: consumers, tradesmen, and industrial buyers. Due to Black & Decker’s subpar performance in the tradesmen segment, the focus of this plan is on the tradesmen. 3. Goal Our ultimate goal is to improve the share of Black & Decker in the power tool market from 9% to 20% in three years. To achieve our ultimate goal, we have set the following objectives: • • • • Customer objectives. Gain awareness, build preference, and foster adoption of the DeWalt brand by tradesmen.
