Deerfield, IL (PRWEB) February 25, 2010
Freudenberg Household Products brand O-Cedar® has selected J.M. Glass + Associates of Bannockburn, IL to introduce a new product. The integrated marketing agency will help launch a wet floor cleaning system to be announced at the March IHA International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago and provide focused strategic counsel on all aspects of marketing development to expand awareness and market penetration for the product.

Glass + Associates to introduce our new wet floor cleaning system, as well as working with them to reach our consumers via print and social media channels,” said Art Wilde, director of US Marketing, FHP. “The agency has a long history of successful household product marketing that is a perfect fit with our brand’s commitment to taking the work out of housework.”
JMG will provide expertise in merchandising, promotions, public relations, social media and advertising support.
“Our integrated marketing team is excited to work with O-Cedar,” said Jeff Glass, president and founder of J.M. Glass + Associates. “It’s an honor to partner with a brand that has more than 100 years of experience in making life easier for consumers. The branding aligns perfectly with our firm’s dedication to marketing solutions that help grow our clients businesses.”
