AccuTec Blades, Inc. Announces Acquisition of Industrial Blades Division from Edgewell Personal Care Company

AccuTec Blades, Inc. announced on September 1, 2015 the acquisition of Edgewell Personal Care Company’s (EPC) Industrial Blades division. EPC announced in May 2015 its intent to discontinue its industrial blade operations in Verona, Virginia and Obregon, Mexico.

The announcement marks the completion of the sale process.      

Rick Gagliano, the newly-appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of AccuTec Blades said, “Our new name, AccuTec Blades, reflects the precision and accuracy of the products we develop, and underscores our long-legacy of quality and technical excellence.”

Bob Senesac, Director of Marketing, AccuTec Blades said, “We are very happy to be able to continue to use the Personna®, GEM by Personna® and American Line® brands, as these names are well-known in the Specialty, Medical and Professional industries. We look forward to continuing to promote these brands in the various markets we serve.“

“Our commitment to great service, fast lead times and providing innovative products to our customers is stronger than ever. It is our goal to exceed our customers’ expectations in terms of quality, responsiveness and service,” said Sheila Henry, Director of Supply Chain, AccuTec Blades. “We expect a smooth transition and are committed to continue delivering timely shipments to all of our customers. We are working closely with our vendors to ensure strong, ongoing business partnerships that are mutually-beneficial.”

EPC acquired the Industrial Blades division in a deal with American Safety Razor in 2011. EPC will be retaining the Personna® brand and will continue to market wet shaving products under this name, only divesting the Industrial Blades business in this sale.
