Fuller Brush Company Files for Bankruptcy


GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — The Fuller Brush Company, headquartered in Great Bend, is filing for bankruptcy protection, more than a century after its fleet of salesmen popularized door-to-door selling in the U.S. The 106-year-old company with 180 employees expects to cut costs and discontinue some unprofitable products to emerge a leaner, more profitable company.  Fuller Brush's assets and debts each amount to $10 million to $50 million.  The company sells personal care and household cleaning products directly and through retailers such as Home Depot.  Private equity firm Buckingham Capital Partners bought the company from CPAC Incorporated in 1997.  It is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.
