Ken Rakusin, President and CEO of Gordon Brush notes, “The acquisition of Parker Brush expands Gordon Brush’s reach and custom manufacturing capabilities. Parker Brush will add to our arsenal of amazing companies: Marx Brush, Milwaukee Dustless Brush, JEK, Redtree Industries, Brush Supply, StaticFaction, J. B. Ward, Kirschner Brush, and Easy Reach Supply. The Parker Brush acquisition dramatically enhances our scale, product offerings, and geographic reach – creating new synergies that better position us for future growth and investment in new and existing markets.” It’s another perfect fit for Gordon Brush® that ties into its mantra of being, Proud To Be An American Manufacturer™. This acquisition enhances the global product offering of Gordon Brush’s line of industrial brushes and opens up new avenues for the manufacture of custom brush products. As the demand for American made products increases, we are proud to be at the forefront of that movement.”
