In his 31 years of talking to cleaning professionals about the tools they use and how they could be improved, Ed Earle has gained an understanding of the needs of the professional cleaner that is second to none. He has worked with thousands of professionals to develop and refine cleaning tools to improve performance and ergonomics as well as to reduce cost to make them more affordable and available.

If you have gone to any industry tradeshows or distributor customer appreciation days over the years, it’s pretty likely you have met or talked with Ed.

When asked why he decided to make a move to Legend Brands Ed said, “I’m grateful to have the opportunity to put my experience and ideas into action for the benefit of the industry. I have always admired Legend Brands as a company and look forward to what we can accomplish together. Cleaning is hard work and I’m committed to strategies that require less muscle-straining effort with optimal results.”

Ed’s insights will help the Legend Brands team design the next generation of tools, wands and accessories with a focus on products that make cleaning more efficient and improve the work experience of our customers.

When you have your next opportunity to chat with Ed, in addition to talking cleaning, ask him about his experiences with hunting, fishing and the great outdoors—he has some great stories to share. Or you might want to ask about his experience as a Division 1 and NAIA Softball Umpire. Ed says that it was an interesting journey. He stays involved with local youth as a mentor in Klamath Falls, Oregon, where his home office will be based.
