Zephyr Manufacturing has acquired the assets of Little Rock Broom Works, also known as Chickasaw Broom, located in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Little Rock Broom Works had been in business since 1900 and was the 7th oldest manufacturer in Arkansas. Selling mostly to hardware stores and jan/san distributors, Little Rock has a long history of manufacturing high quality cleaning products in Arkansas. One of Little Rock’s most well known products, the Airlight corn broom, will continue to be manufactured in Zephyr’s facility in Missouri.
R.J. Lindstrom, President and CEO of Zephyr Manufacturing notes, “the addition of Little Rock’s broad line of deck mops and brooms, including the Airlight, will help strengthen Zephyr’s position in the marketplace as a source for high quality hard floor care products. We will continue our push for “Made in America” as we add Airlight Broom production into our Missouri plant.”
