Alfred C. Fuller founded the Fuller Brush Company in 1906. Originally from Nova Scotia, Fuller began crafting custom-made brushes in a basement shop in Massachusetts before moving to Hartford, Connecticut, to start the Fuller Brush Company. The company is best known for its door-to-door sales personnel known as the Fuller Brush Man and Fuller Brush Woman.
By the mid-1980s, the Fuller Brush Company started to try out other avenues for selling its products, such as sending out mail-order catalogs and opening outlets where slow-selling, flawed and returned products are sold. Towards the end of the decade, mail order catalogs accounted for 35 percent of the company's sales and 5 percent came from the outlet stores.
As of March 2015, the product offerings had expanded from personal care products to a wider range of household cleaning products, industrial cleaners and cookware. Other Fuller Brush Company-owned brands, such as Stanley Home Products and My Kitchen My Home, can be purchased from Fuller Brush's website.Learn more about Cleaning Products
