AccuTec Blades has acquired Edgewell Personal Care Co.'s (EPC) industrial blades division. 

The acquisition comes after EPC's announcement in May of its intent to discontinue its industrial blade operations in Verona, Virginia and Obregon, Mexico.

“Our new name, AccuTec Blades, reflects the precision and accuracy of the products we develop, and underscores our long-legacy of quality and technical excellence,” said Rick Gagliano, newly appointed president and CEO of AccuTec Blades.

EPC acquired the Industrial Blades division in a deal with American Safety Razor in 2011. EPC will be retaining the Personna brand and will continue to market wet shaving products under this name, only divesting the Industrial Blades business in this sale.
Bob Senesac, director of marketing, AccuTec, said, “We are very happy to be able to continue to use the Personna, GEM by Personna and American Line brands, as these names are well-known in the specialty, medical and professional industries. We look forward to continuing to promote these brands in the various markets we serve.“
