Deb Group Earns Third Place in Innovation Contest at the Interline Annual Partner Conference

CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Sept. 15, 2017 –Deb Group, an SC Johnson company, today announced that it received third place in the Innovation Contest at the Interline Annual Partner Conference (APC) in Orlando, Fla. for 4 innovative product submissions - Solopol® GFX™,  SC Johnson Professional® Hard Surface Floor Care System, and the TruShot™ and TruFill™ Dispensing Systems from SC Johnson Professional®. The winning products were on display at the conference’s Innovation Station, which highlights new products launched in the past year.

“Our goal is to provide high-quality and advanced solutions for suppliers and distributors that address the segment-specific challenges they face,” said Isabelle Faivre, Vice President of Marketing, Deb North America. “We’re honored that our products were showcased during this year’s APC.”

Deb Group’s Solopol® GFX™ is the world’s only heavy-duty foam hand cleanser with grit. It quickly removes medium to heavy-duty contamination such as oil, grease and grime from hands, without leaving them feeling dry, rough and cracked.

The SC Johnson Professional Hard Surface Floor Care System works on nearly any substrate and includes: a fast-acting low odor stripper, finish with FlexiFilm Technology™, and  a low-foaming cleaner  that is effective across a range of dilutions.  The system seamlessly integrates into existing workflows and requires only one chemistry, for each step of the floor maintenance process.

TruShot™ is a revolutionary mobile dispensing system utilizing a concentrated chemistry cartridge and a durable trigger sprayer that fills at any water source.  With metering technology built into the cartridge, the user is able to use multiple chemistries with one trigger. The system simplifies dilution dispensing, replacing wall-mounted or other concentrate dispensing systems.  

Similarly, the TruFill™ Dispensing System offers easy-to-use, quick-change cartridges and a reusable dispenser head that automatically blends floor care concentrates with water to provide worry-free dilution.

“The theme of this year’s APC was ‘Taking the Lead,’ which celebrates new integrated solutions from well-respected industry leaders,” said Peter Routsis, Director of Marketing, Interline Brands. “We’re proud to recognize Deb Group and SC Johnson Professional for its innovative products and solutions.”

The APC provides its members with the opportunity to learn more about Interline Brands, network with hundreds of sales representatives and customers, and interact with Interline’s merchandising and executive management teams.
