Gillette / Corporate Member Profile
Based in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, it was owned by The Gillette Company, a supplier of products under various brands until that company merged into P&G in 2005. The Gillette Company was founded by King C. Gillette in 1901 as a safety razor manufacturer.
Under the leadership of Colman M. Mockler Jr. as CEO from 1975 to 1991, the company was the target of multiple takeover attempts, from Ronald Perelman[ and Coniston Partners. In January 2005, Procter & Gamble announced plans to merge with the Gillette Company.
The Gillette Company’s assets were incorporated into a P&G unit known internally as “Global Gillette”. In July 2007, Global Gillette was dissolved and incorporated into Procter & Gamble’s other two main divisions, Procter & Gamble Beauty and Procter & Gamble Household Care. Gillette’s brands and products were divided between the two accordingly. The Gillette R&D center in Boston, Massachusetts, and the Gillette South Boston Manufacturing Center (known as “Gillette World Shaving Headquarters”), still exist as functional working locations under the Procter & Gamble-owned Gillette brand name. Gillette’s subsidiaries Braun and Oral-B, among others, have also been retained by P&G.
