Morton-Norwich Products, Inc.
In 1969, Morton (the famous salt maker!) merges with Norwich Pharmacal, creating Morton-Norwich Products, Inc. The merger marks Morton's entry into pharmaceuticals and household and cosmetic products. The Texize household products group, developer of FANTASTIK® spray cleaner, grows to include such well-known products as SPRAY 'n WASH® laundry soil and stain remover and GLASS PLUS® glass cleaner.

The companies roots date back to 1848 when Alonzo Richmond arrived in Chicago from Syracuse, New York, to open his new business: Richmond & Company, Agents for Onondaga Salt. In 1910, the company’s name was changed to the Morton Salt Company (several years after Joy Morton gained a controlling interest in the company).

In 1914, the famous Morton Umbrella Girl and "When It Rains It Pours" slogan first appeared on the blue package of table salt and in a series of Good Housekeeping magazine advertisements. The slogan was adapted from an old proverb, "It never rains but it pours."
