March 21, 2019
MEMPHIS, TN, July 20, 2018 — W.M. Barr & Company, Inc. (“W. M. Barr”), a market leader in specialty cleaning products serving both consumers and professionals in the home improvement, household and automotive industries, has acquired Spray & Forget, the fastest growing brand in the outdoor cleaning market. The terms and conditions of the transaction were not disclosed.
“Outdoor Living is a $5-billion category, and growing. Now, more than ever, consumers are looking for ways to clean and maintain their investment in these living spaces,” said Scott Beal, President of W.M. Barr. “This acquisition not only makes Barr the number one outdoor cleaning company in the US; it also gives us a full line of products to meet every consumer need with the best brands and technologies available.”
Spray & Forget was originally invented to deal with black streaks on roofs, but has since been expanded into a full line of outdoor cleaning products. The products are eco-friendly, non-toxic and biodegradable, and are designed to work over-time with the elements. No rinsing is required. Spray & Forget products remove stains caused by algae, mold, mildew, moss and lichen and work great on all exterior surfaces.
Spray & Forget joins a market leading stable of outdoor cleaning brands at W.M. Barr, including Mold Armor, a leading brand in mold cleaning and abatement, and Mr. Clean Outdoor Cleaner, a hose-end cleaner that powers away tough dirt and grime with no scrubbing. Together, these brands offer consumers unparalleled ability to clean dirt, remove stains and kill mold with minimal effort.
