Whitmor, Inc. has acquired Neat Method, which provides luxury home organization services to households around the country through its 25-plus current locations in operation. This acquisition marks the first in Whitmor’s history.
According to the company, the acquisition is said to be the first business combination within the storage and organization category of the housewares industry that brings together a product-focused retail supplier and a service provider, both sharing in a common objective to help keep people and households organized.
“In recent years we identified a real opportunity for our company to become strategically aligned with a home organization service provider. Quickly after commencing conversations with Neat Method we knew, without a doubt, that they were the perfect fit for our vision,” said Scott Felsenthal, evp/Whitmor. “Neat Method has built a terrific business and brand that has provided many individuals who love to organize with the opportunity to start their own business and earn significant income doing what they love to do. We have aggressive plans to help fuel the growth of, and to strategically support, Neat Method.”
“After many years of building our business and providing the best home organizing services in the industry to clients across the country, we have learned just how important products are to the successful outcome of a project and a home,” said Ashley Murphy and Molly Graves, Neat Method co-founders. “We truly believe that without the perfect products, our clients cannot maintain an organized space. Joining forces with a leader in the storage and organization product world was a natural fit. We look forward to continuing to grow with Whitmor and officially marrying their products and capabilities with our service offerings.”
