A&B Wiper Supply and Nation/Ruskin Merge

PHILADELPHIA - A&B Wiper Supply, supplier of terry towels for the discount retail and institutional channels, has merged with Nation/Ruskin, which manufactures and distributes paint sundries and houseware cleaning products under the EZ One brand as well as retail private label brands.
     Nation/Ruskin is a new entity formed by the consolidation of Nation Accessories Inc and Ruskin Sponge Co.
     "The merger is mutually beneficial. Nation/Ruskin's customers will benefit from A&B Wiper Supply's global sourcing and buying power," said Hal Kanefsky, ceo of A&B Wiper Supply. "Nation/Ruskin's reputation for high standards in all aspects of customer service is a natural fit."
