Through the years we have built a definition of success that includes a strong, committed group of employees, development of innovative products, growth of manufacturing capacity and efficiency, customer satisfaction and long-term business relationships.
Malco® was founded by Murray Glauberman in 1953, with his father Abe, for the purpose of manufacturing janitorial and industrial specialty chemicals. Murray’s brother Lionel Glauberman joined Malco® in 1960, and together the father and sons embarked on a series of expansions that would eventually take the company from a single product, to one that manufactures and markets a broad line of branded and contract specialty chemicals domestically and internationally.
Today, Malco® remains in the family, headed by Stuart Glauberman, Murray’s son. Malco® now employs nearly 300 people and maintains its corporate headquarters in Barberton, Ohio. With additional manufacturing locations in Alliance and Akron, Ohio, the business can service its growing customer base using a wide range of blending, filling, labeling, capping and case packing capabilities.
