From “Going mop head to mop head” Wall Street Journal article: “ Household mop maker Libman Co. felt it was time to deliver a floor mop in the "quick clean" category. Marketing director,
Brian Sowinski says the Swiffer was "really the only game in town in that category." Libman's Freedom mop is a "sort of in-between cleaning" device that consumers can use for touch-ups between more deep cleanings with a regular mop like
Libman's Tornado Mop or Wonder Mop. Like Rubbermaid's Reveal, the Freedom mop allows consumers a choice of cleansers and comes with a washable pad.
"Because to us," the mop's packaging says, "disposable pads and bottles sounds like a bunch of garbage." ”

From http://libman.com

“For over 110 years, the Libman family has made quality their utmost priority. William Libman started The Libman Company in 1896 with one mission; to make the finest, most durable wire-wound corn brooms. William’s sons, grandsons and great grandchildren have since expanded that mission to include the finest mops, brooms, brushes and cleaning tools.”
“By 1980, all major production was pulled under one roof. The Libman Company became one of the largest vertically integrated houseware facilities in the country. During the past 15 years, the company has expanded its product line to become the leading manufacturer of high-quality brooms, mops and brushes in the U.S.”
“Twenty years later the 4th generation, Andrew, Rachel and Aaron have come aboard. Like their predecessors, they are looking towards the future. They are focused on expanding distribution in the retail and commercial markets with the Libman High Power line and expanding into the international market with the entire Libman line. While working on growing distribution, they continue to focus on quality, national advertising, service and product innovation.”

Greenness-
“It's more than just the color of our handles that is green. At Libman, we use 95% recycled plastic to make our broom fibers and up to 70% recycled steel to create the mop and broom handles. Our product packaging uses eco-friendly and partially recycled materials and our high quality cleaning products are designed to use very little to no chemicals. Libman mop heads are machine washable and can be reused over 100 times, thus preventing hundreds of disposable cleaning pads from being discarded into landfills.” – “In addition to using ENERGY STAR electronics, we track the efficiency of our manufacturing processes and constantly work towards optimizing them.”

Fact: Manufacturing recycled goods uses up to 95% less energy than using raw materials

From Arcola Chamber of Commerce:

“As far as the building they are in we believe it was built in the late 1800 or early 1900.”

“The Libman Company is one of the leading manufacturers of cleaning products in the United States. We are a family-owned company in business since 1896 and have been producing quality products at our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Arcola, IL for over 110 years. You can find our high quality products at many major retail stores in the U.S. and 10 other countries where our products are sold. To learn more about our company and our products, please visit our website.”

About Arcola:
From www.arcolaillinois.org
“Arcola celebrates its heritage as "broomcorn capital of the world" with the renowned Broom Corn Festival. Visitors pack in every year the weekend after Labor Day. They come for numerous broom activities, unique arts and crafts, free entertainment, and great food. The festival's parade is Central Illinois' largest and is home to the world famous Lawn Rangers, who twirl and toss their brooms. The community still boasts ties to broomcorn and the broom industry with companies such as the Thomas Monahan Company and the Libman Company.”

LIBMAN MOPPING UP.

Family-owned Downstate broom-maker succeeds in business the old-fashioned way Downstate mop-maker cleaning up
Dateline: ARCOLA —
Like many residents of this Amish hamlet three hours south of Chicago, where horse-drawn buggies share brick-paved roads with cars, Libman Co. still does things the old-fashioned way.
Ignoring conventional wisdom, the family-owned company manufactures its Libman brooms and mops not in a Chinese factory but in Arcola, where it has resided for nearly a century. While many of its peers in the consumer products business have shifted to just-in-time inventory, Libman stocks three months' worth of cleaning products in its warehouse, ensuring a ready supply for retail customers like Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Lowe's Cos.
And while manufacturers of every stripe have shed production across the board, Libman has actually become more vertically integrated, making its own mop handles instead of buying them from a manufacturer.
Antiquated thinking? Maybe, but it's working: In the first eight months of this year, sales of Libman-brand products, fueled by its redesigned Wonder Mop, grew 22%, to $44 million, in the stores tracked by Information Resources Inc. (IRI). The Chicago research firm captures only about half of the stores that sell Libman products. In the stores IRI does track, Libman has almost 10% of the market for cleaning tools, mops and brooms, making it the second-biggest name in the category, behind Cincinnati behemoth Procter & Gamble Co. (P&G).
What's more impressive, Libman's growth comes as overall sales of cleaning tools are declining. Even Swiffer, the P&G-made swivel stick that holds a disposable dust wipe, is struggling. Sales of the whole Swiffer line — from the Swiffer Wet cleaner to the Sweep & Vac-are down 8.4% so far this year, to $135 million, IRI data show.
Andrew Libman, 35, the sales and marketing vice-president who runs the business along with his father, says the company's sales have doubled in the last decade, to $100 million last year. "We've hit a point where we're seeing a tremendous amount of growth," he says.
But how long can a family business flourish in an industry dominated by international conglomerates like P&G and Rubbermaid? Even with its recent success, Libman would seem vulnerable to competition from large-scale operators, especially since its most advanced mop features easily copied innovations like an easy-grip handle.
Libman also lacks marketing muscle. Last year it spent $5 million on advertising, according to TNS Media Intelligence. P&G spent $128 million to promote Swiffer-brand sweepers.
Mr. Libman says the company's marketing has raised its brand awareness among women to 55% from 30%. He's also confident that Libman's business model makes perfect sense in the modern world.
"I don't think it's necessarily true that you have to go overseas to find the lowest cost of goods," says Mr. Libman, the fourth generation Libman to run the company founded by his great-grandfather, a Jewish Lithuanian immigrant who sold brooms in Chicago before the need for more space — and broomcorn — necessitated moving the company Downstate.
In some ways, Libman's size may work to its advantage. A recent run-up in plastic costs that caused the company to raise prices may have actually squeezed bigger mop-makers more.
"For many large companies with large cost structures — with the spiraling cost of fuel and high shipping and marketing costs — it's becoming more difficult to operate successfully," says Steven Jacober, president of the Dayton, Ohio-based School, Home and Office Products Assn.
Even as material costs rise, the Libmans are stepping up production. In the next year, they plan to add machinery that will double their factory's output to 140,000 items a day. do it themselves
Thomas Monahan, president of broom supply company Thomas Monahan Co. in Arcola, used to sell Libman its steel broom and mop handles, until Libman started making its own handles 10 years ago. "Their philosophy is to do everything themselves," says Mr. Monahan, who now sells mainly to Libman rivals Quickie and Rubbermaid.
One relationship the Libmans haven't let go of dates back to the mid-1970s. That's when the first Libman corn broom appeared in a Wal-Mart store. Mr. Libman and his father, 62-year-old company president Robert, make four trips a year to Wal-Mart headquarters in Bentonville, Ark.
"By controlling all aspects of their manufacturing in-house, they have created quality products that are affordable, something Wal-Mart very much appreciates," says Michael McFadden Jr., who buys household goods for the retail giant.
Of course, Wal-Mart will drop Libman the moment people who scrub floors stop spending $9.99 to $15.99 for Libman mops.
Joanne Moss, owner of Chicago cleaning service Mighty Maids-Mighty Men, buys Libman's cotton-head Tornado Mops in bulk because they're so durable. "They last," she says. "Otherwise, I wouldn't use them."

Company Q - a Company Without a Clue

...Company Q - A Company without a clue Part 1: An evaluation Company Q, a small local grocer, appears to be a company operating with a total lack of understanding of social responsibility. By closing stores in certain neighborhoods, ignoring customer demands for items and only offering a limited selection of in demand items, and by throwing away food that could otherwise be donated, Company Q shows a lack of dedication and compassion to their community, indifference to the wants of their customers, and a lack of responsibility to their employees and stakeholders. Part 2: Recommendations There are a number of things that Company Q can do to increase their social responsibility to the community that they serve, their employees, and stakeholders. First, Company Q can operate different types of stores in the different neighborhoods they serve. In lower-income areas stores can be operated as smaller neighborhood markets that offer fewer services and sell essential grocery items. Stores in middle-income, working class areas can be larger supermarkets that offer more services, and sell a mix of essential grocery items and specialty health and organic items. Higher-income areas can have stores that offer the same services as the general supermarkets, but offer a wider variety of specialty health and organic items along with imported and other high-end products. By diversifying the types of stores it operates, Company Q can respond to customer demands and expand its......

Company

...incorporation is the creation of two independent bodies; the company and its membership. The membership of a limited company takes shares in a company. The shares held represent a member’s interest in the company. The nature and extent of this interest will determine the member’s right to participate in dividend payments as well as a member’s right to participate in the decision making policy of the company. Subject to any prohibition contained in the company’s constitution, a shareholder may freely sell or dispose of his shareholding interest. In respect of the company’s existence, it is quite irrelevant that the identity of its shareholder may change. A company’s legal existence is not dependent upon the survival of individual shareholders. Accordingly, a company is said to have perpetual succession.
