The company has a rich legacy of businesses that were successful pioneers in the commercial, cleaning and hygiene business. Its roots begin in 1886, when S.C. Johnson founded his parquet floor business in Racine, Wis. Soon after, another of Diversey’s legacy businesses, Diversey Corporation, was founded in 1923 in Chicago.
Both businesses continued to grow and thrive throughout the 20th century, serving customers around the world. In 1996, Diversey Corporation was acquired by Unilever to become Diversey. Lever. Then, in 1997, what was known as S.C. Johnson Commercial Markets separated from its parent company to form Johnson Wax Professional.
In 2002, Johnson Wax Professional acquired DiverseyLever and the combined companies became JohnsonDiversey until March 2010, when the name was simplified to Diversey.
