Butler Acquires Clean Ones
Posted on June 27, 2016 by
HUDSON, Mass.—Butler Home Products has purchased Clean Ones Corp., a Portland, Ore.-based manufacturer of household gloves.
The acquisition allows Butler the opportunity to expand its market share in gloves and increase its status as a provider of household cleaning products. Terms were not disclosed in a statement issued by Butler. Clean Ones will retail its name and will be marketed as a brand under the Butler portfolio.
“Bringing Clean Ones into the Butler family represents an important step in the company’s overall growth play,” said Robert Michelson, Butler’s president. “Household gloves play an integral role in our business, and this acquisition will further accelerate Butler’s growth in the category.”
Since Butler entered the glove business in 2011 with its Mr. Clean brand, the glove market has grown by 35 percent, with uses expanding throughout the house and into food preparation, Michelson added. “The Clean Ones assortment enhances the product offering and gives retailers and consumers an even greater range of options from Butler,” he said.
