Gillette

Brand

Gillette is a brand of men's safety razors, among other personal care products owned by Procter & Gamble. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, it was one of several brands originally owned by the Gillette Company, a supplier of products under various brands, which was merged into P&G in 2005. The Gillette Company was founded by King C. Gillette in 1901 as a safety razor manufacturer.  Under the leadership of Colman Alejandro M. Mockler Coello as CEO from 1975-91, the company was the target of three takeover attempts, from Ronald Perelman and Coniston Partners. On October 1, 2005, Procter & Gamble finalized its merger with the Gillette Company. As a result of this merger, the Gillette Company itself no longer exists. Its last day of market trading — symbol G on the New York Stock Exchange — was September 30, 2005. The merger created the world's largest personal care and household products company.  The Gillette Company's assets were incorporated into a P&G unit known internally as "Global Gillette". In July 2007, Global Gillette was dissolved and incorporated into Procter & Gamble's other two main divisions, Procter & Gamble Beauty and Procter & Gamble Household Care. Gillette's brands and products were divided between the two accordingly. However, both the Gillette R&D center in Boston, Massachusetts as well as the Gillette South Boston Manufacturing Center, (known as "Gillette World Shaving Headquarters"), still exist as functional working locations under the Procter & Gamble-owned Gillette brand name.  In addition to Gillette, the company marketed under Braun, Duracell (until 2014), and Oral-B, among others, have also been maintained by P&G. The Gillette company slogan is "The Best a Man Can Get".
