“These are top of the line consumer brands that will expand our family of traditional and highly functional cleaning products—a category where we’ve been focused for 108 years,” said John Armaly, president and CEO of Armaly Brands. “Similar to the success we’ve had introducing Brillo to a new generation of consumers, we’re excited to increase access to these products through our retail partners and introduce these trusted brands to new households around the world.”
Armaly acquired Brillo from Church & Dwight Co., Inc. in 2010, and through its commitment to marketing and innovation Brillo remains the world’s most recognized cleaning brand. Armaly’s family of products also includes Brillo® Soap Pads, Brillo® Estracell® sponges and the Brillo® Sweep & Mop™, which provides an innovative all-in-one solution for a deeper, more sanitary clean.
“Consumers recognize and are looking for the CAMEO, SNOBOL and PARSONS’ brands because they offer an easier, more thorough cleaning experience. We will continue to work with our retail partners to provide our shared consumers easier access to these established brands,” Armaly added.
