ITW Combines Business Units to Form ITW Pro Brands

LPS, ITW Professional Brands and Atlantic Mills have combined their product portfolios to create the new business unit.

LPS, ITW Professional Brands (formerly ITW Dymon) and Atlantic Mills have combined product portfolios and will now operate as ITW Pro Brands, headquartered in Olathe, KS. This scale-up of previously independent Illinois Tool Works business units is the result of in-depth market research with key channel partners.

“We listened to our distributors and took decisive action by combining three of our strongest business units into one organization,” said ITW Pro Brands Vice President and General Manager Paul Taylor. “The new structure makes doing business with us easier and more efficient. It also allows us to invest greater resources into our brands, driving end user demand and deepening our commitment to new product innovation.”

As part of the scale-up, ITW Pro Brands has created a new service model with a simplified structure and operations. “By aligning resources and focusing on supply chain excellence, ITW Pro Brands customers will enjoy greater product availability and improved customer support,” Taylor said.

ITW Pro Brands products are used in industrial, transportation, foodservice and jan/san markets for cleaning, lubrication, degreasing, metalworking and marking.
