Gordon Brush Acquires Justman Brush
Gordon Brush Mfg. Co., Inc., has acquired Justman Brush Company, located in Omaha, NE. Justman Brush’s manufacturing and operations will remain in the company’s 45,000-square-foot building in Omaha, while administrative procedures will be moved to Gordon Brush’s 183,000-square-foot facility in City of Industry, CA.
Since 1929, Justman Brush has specialized in manufacturing a vast array of styles and types of stock and custom brushes for the scientific, food service and electronics industries.
Justman Brush CEO John Matthews said, “It’s time for us to step aside so that the company can continue to grow. We felt that Gordon Brush was the best fit to take Justman Brush to the next level, to continue our family tradition of individualized customer service, and to best manufacture our line of American made brushes.”
Gordon Brush President & CEO Ken Rakusin added, “The acquisition of Justman Brush expands Gordon Brush’s reach and custom manufacturing capabilities. Justman Brush will add to our arsenal of amazing companies: Marx Brush, Milwaukee Dustless Brush, JEK, Redtree Industries, Brush Supply, StaticFaction, J. B. Ward, Kirschner Brush, Easy Reach Supply, Spectrum Paint Applicators and Parker Brush. The Justman Brush acquisition dramatically enhances our scale, product offerings, and geographic reach — creating new synergies that better position us for future growth and investment in new and existing markets.
“It’s another perfect fit for Gordon Brush that ties into its mantra of being, ‘Proud To Be An American Manufacturer™.’ This acquisition enhances the global product offering of Gordon Brush’s line of industrial brushes, and opens new avenues for the manufacture of custom brush products. As the demand for American made products increases, we are proud to be at the forefront of that movement.”
