Reckitt Benckiser Group Plc is a global giant in household cleaning, health and personal care. With some 23,000 employees, it operates in over 60 countries and has sales in 180 countries worldwide. To date, sales exceed five billion and continue to grow due to its 18 leading Power brands and its highly motivated multinational management system.

While Benckiser was established by J.A. Benckiser in 1823, it was in 1848 that Isaac Reckitt purchased a starch mill in Hull before diversifying into the household cleaning product sector. In 1862, Reckitt died and left the company to his three sons. 1913 witnessed the formation of a successful joint venture between Reckitt and Sons and J and J Colman-Atlantis Ltd, and in 1938 these two companies merged to create Reckitt and Colman Plc. However, it was not until 1999 that it merged with Benckiser N.Y to become Reckitt and Benckiser Plc. Its most recent activity includes a global campaign to reduce the total carbon footprint of all Reckitt Benckiser products by 20% by 2020.

With such an impressive but consistent company growth, it's easy to see why this company chose as its motto the phrase 'Seeing is Believing.' The annual reports for 2007 stated that it was the eighth year running that Reckitt Benckier witnessed above industry average net revenues and profit growth, with share dividends increasing by 21%. Diluted earnings per share was 127.9p and dividend per share was 55.0p. Surely shareholders were pleased with this performance, irrespective of the original share price.

With such an impressive portfolio that is still expanding globally, Reckitt Benckiser Plc has certainly achieved a clean bill of heath business wise.
