Businesswoman extending hand to shake

Jelmar, a Skokie, Illinois-based industrial cleaning products company announced its acquisition of the stain remover brand ESPRO.

"We're thrilled to bring in the ESPRO brand of sports cleaning products under our ownership,” says Alison Gutterman, CEO and president of Jelmar. “We believe they align with and complement Jelmar's offerings perfectly. ESPRO's unique product formulation not only fits Jelmar's tough and efficacious cleaning products portfolio, but it is also environmentally-friendly. We're looking forward to being able to help our customers tackle yet another cleaning issue with an effective product formula."

ESPRO Sports Cleaner is a stain remover product used by college and pro sports teams, as well as athletes and parents. 

"We are proud to see our ESPRO products being brought under the umbrella of Jelmar, where they will be introduced to a new audience, says Steve Dean, president of ESPRO. "The inception and growth of these products to date have been guided under family leadership, and we know that with Jelmar being a family-owned company as well, these products will be in good hands while staying true to their beginnings."
