The Remington company has been around for quite a long time and have gone through many changes in ownership, products they manufacture, and in and out of debt. None of this discredits where they are today, seeing as they are one of the top companies for pretty high quality at-home styling appliances.
Believe it or not, in the early to mid 1800’s, Remington began by producing firearms. It started out with a rather poor farmer who had his own forge and blacksmith shop (he built and repaired farm equipment) that needed a rifle and managed to make a gun barrel out of scrap metal. They became very popular in during the Civil War time, for obvious reasons, and even after they managed to stay afloat by producing sewing machines, lathes, burglar alarms, gasoline-powered engines, pill- and tablet-making machines, and typewriters. After some financial set backs and a change of ownership to the typewriter company in the late 1880’s, Remington began making office equipment. Towards the mid-1930’s, Remington took a different direction and ventured into what we really care about; electric shavers.
This is what really started the company going. The first successful Remington shaver went on the market in 1931, and then introduced the first dual-head shaver (the Remington Dual), followed the next year by their first multi-headed shaver (The Foursome). In 1955, Remington merged with another company that lead it in the route of computers, though the Remington Shaver Division remained a part of it. Shortly after, in 1960, the cordless shaver surfaced (the Lektronic). From here on, they started making new models very quickly and very often. Unfortunately with so much more competition on the market now, Remington started to fade away.
New ownership came along in 1979 by a man named Kiam. Shavers started becoming more affordable and the higher end ones were set apart by a larger difference in price. Kiam started starring in commercials for the company, he became famous for his story of how be bought Remington. After considering the purchase of the company but never having used an electric shaver, his wife bought him one. He used it, did some research by using other brands’ shavers, and came to the conclusion that Remington gave him the closest shave (good news for you!). The commercials skyrocketed sales throughout many countries. By 1992, Kiam was no longer the owner.
In the 90’s, it was time to venture into more branches of appliances, and the new Remington started making styling appliances for women, as well as ladies electric shavers. They now have two main divisions; Remington Shaving and Grooming, and Personal Care and Wellness. They are still very popular to this day and have maintained their high level of materials used, such as their self-sharpening, titanium coated blades in their shavers. Whether you want a quick shaving device to get the job done fast, or if you like to take a little extra time to create your signature look, Remington shavers definitely have what you need.
