Global Gillette, formerly The Gillette Company, likes to be on the cutting edge. The world's #1 maker of shaving supplies, the firm is best known for its razors and blades (Sensor, Trac II, and the premium-priced Mach3, M3Power, and Fusion), but it's also a leading battery (Duracell) maker. Gillette also makes Braun electric shavers. In October 2005 The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) bought 100% of Gillette for about $57 billion in stock. Its Braun- and Oral-B-branded oral care products are now part of P&G's brand portfolio. It sold its Right Guard, Soft & Dri, and Dry Idea brands to Henkel's Dial for some $420 million.
