RACINE —On Thursday, SC Johnson
signed an agreement to acquire Method and Ecover, two consumer
brands from People Against Dirty, a leading company that offers home
care, hand and body, and laundry products sold in North America,
Europe and a number of other countries around the world.
“Method and Ecover have a strong
tradition of innovation and delivering on consumers’ needs. They are
a great complement to SC Johnson’s trusted lineup of iconic brands,”
said Fisk Johnson, chairman and CEO of SC Johnson, in a statement.
SC Johnson is one of the world’s
leading manufacturers of household cleaning products and products
for air care, home storage, shoe care, personal care and pest
control, as well as professional products.
The transaction is subject to
regulatory approvals in the U.S., U.K. and Germany, and other
customary closing conditions.
SC Johnson did not disclose the
financial details of the transaction, saying it does not need to do
so as a private company.
