SC Johnson announced on Tuesday 25 October 2016 that it will return to the industrial and institutional (I&I) cleaning business.
[quote]“This is the right time to re-enter the I&I business,” stated SC Johnson CEO and chairman Fisk Johnson. “Our purchase of the Deb Group and STERIS Applied Infection Control and the recent move to bring back our SC Johnson-branded products from Sealed Air/Diversey to the new SC Johnson Professional business gives us a lot of momentum to re-enter this space in a big way.”[/quote]
‘SC Johnson operated in the I&I business starting in the 1930s and eventually spun off its professional business in the late 1990s’.
Mr Johnson announced the company’s return at ISSA/INTERCLEAN in Chicago last week.
[quote]“We’re bringing great innovation in our new products and attention to quality and service to the industry,” he shared.[/quote]
‘SC Johnson acquired the Deb Group in 2015 and STERIS Applied Infection Control in 2016’. The manufacturer will be ending its existing brand license agreement with Sealed Air Corporation.
In Australia and New Zealand, this agreement will expire on 1 January 2017.
