COMMERCE, CA -- Gordon Brush, Mfg. Co., Inc. announced today that it has acquired Brush Supply Company (BSC) of Glen Ellyn, Illinois from G. Geoff Shaw, Vice President, and that he has joined Gordon Brush as Regional Sales Manager.

Gordon Brush is one of the nation's top industrial manufacturers of specialty and standard brushes. "Business is robust. We are expanding our operations, our equipment and our staff. When Geoff Shaw approached us with his idea to better serve his customer base, it seemed like a natural fit and a win-win for everyone," notes Gordon President and CEO since 1990, Ken Rakusin.

Shaw's father, George Shaw, President, founded BSC 44 years ago. Geoff Shaw notes, "My father built a reputation as a sincere and knowledgeable leader. Throughout my tenure, I have honored his legacy. From this solid foundation, I have grown the trust of our customer base and our standing in the industry. We have been seeking a way to offer more to our customers and have found it in Gordon Brush. Dad greatly admired Gordon Brush and we both worked hard to make this happen. We are thrilled."
