WHO IS MR CLEAN?

APB Asia is the proud owner of the MR CLEAN, MR MAGIC, & MR GLEAM trademarks  operating in the Household, Automotive, & Commercial Cleaning categories in Asia & the Indian Sub-Continent.

MR CLEAN successfully launched in the Australian and New Zealand markets in the Year 2000 with  a range of innovative kitchen scrubbers and household cleaning wipes and cloths utilizing microfiber technology. Soon to follow was an expansion into the automotive cleaning category. By the mid 2000’s the MR CLEAN brand reputation was gaining strength and extended to new cleaning categories to include  mops, brooms, brushware, window squeegees and buckets.

 

Hello, Asia

Following on from the brand success in Australia & New Zealand, APB Asia Pty. Ltd. was established in December 2003 with the objective of introducing the MR CLEAN product range into the Southeast Asian cleaning category which was still very much in its infancy. APB Asia’s first entry into the Asian market was the distribution of MR CLEAN Automotive products into the Singapore Oil Station market. The Philippines was the first Asian market to launch the MR CLEAN brand in the household cleaning category. An APB Asia office was established in January 2007 in Manila to service the Philippine market. MR CLEAN is now firmly established as a leading brand in the Philippines.

 

APB Asia have consistently led the market with innovative microfibre products across the cleaning accessory categories.

 

The product range now extends from cloths, scourers, wipes and sponges into higher value categories of microfibre mops, higher performance cloths, brushware, brooms, and household gloves.
