Remington® Celebrates 75 Years of Shaving
Trusted, Global Personal Care Brand Recognized for Pioneering Technology Innovation, Highest Quality, Affordability and Style-Setting
MADISON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- With a demonstrated commitment to helping men get ready since 1937, Remington® today launches a celebration of its 75th anniversary as an enduring, widely trusted personal care brand that has consistently advanced technology and style trends in shave and groom products for men and blazed a trail of expertise and product superiority known around the world.
A division of Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. (NYS: SPB) , Remington® is inviting consumers to join in the celebration of its shaving heritage, highlighted by a week-long offering of outstanding product discounts starting today and a special day of product giveaways on December 19 on RemingtonReady's Facebook page. Remington's rich and colorful history can be seen at www.remingtonproducts.com/75anniversary.
Men's shaving has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1937 when Remington® launched its first electric shaver, the Model E. With a unique turn-wheel, start-induction motor, the Model E quickly placed Remington® at the pinnacle of razor technology. Shortly after came the introduction of Remington's first multi-head shaver, the Dual, in 1940 and the first cordless shaver, the Lektronic, in 1960.
Remington's latest and most popular shaving ranges are the R and F series, an advanced collection of rotary and foil shavers featuring unique Pivot & Flex technology, engineered for extreme precision and an ultra-comfortable shaving experience.
Remington® has an established position at the cutting edge of technology, creating superior products through the decades that help give men confidence to be ready for anything - from the clean-cut look of the 1950s, to the sideburns of the 1970s, and to the designer stubble of today's modern man. Remington's 75-year expertise in shaving is testament to a brand dedicated to quality, innovation and style.
Remington® is "How the World Gets Ready." A global leader and manufacturer of men's and women's grooming and styling products, Remington® is an innovator of affordable hair care, electric shavers, wet shavers, wet shave products, and body groomers and trimmers, and a subsidiary of Spectrum Brands Holdings.
