Gillette, WY

Gillette or Gilette may refer to:

Gillette (brand)

Gillette is a brand of men's safety razors and other personal care products including shaving supplies, owned by the multi-national corporation Procter & Gamble (P&G).

Based in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, it was originally owned by The Gillette Company, a supplier of products under various brands until that company merged into P&G in 2005. The Gillette Company was founded by King C. Gillette in 1901 as a safety razor manufacturer.

Under the leadership of Colman M. Mockler Jr. as CEO from 1975–91, the company was the target of three takeover attempts, from Ronald Perelman and Coniston Partners. On October 1, 2005, Procter & Gamble finalized its merger with the Gillette Company.

The Gillette Company's assets were incorporated into a P&G unit known internally as "Global Gillette". In July 2007, Global Gillette was dissolved and incorporated into Procter & Gamble's other two main divisions, Procter & Gamble Beauty and Procter & Gamble Household Care. Gillette's brands and products were divided between the two accordingly. However, both the Gillette R&D center in Boston, Massachusetts as well as the Gillette South Boston Manufacturing Center (known as "Gillette World Shaving Headquarters"), still exist as functional working locations under the Procter & Gamble-owned Gillette brand name. Gillette's subsidiaries Braun and Oral-B, among others, have also been retained by P&G.

Gillette (singer)

Sandra Gillette (born Sandra Navarro Gillette in September 16, 1974), better known by just her surname and stage name Gillette, was an occasional American dance and hip hop artist, rapper and actress.

Gillette (NJT station)

Gillette is the first of three station stops on the Gladstone Branch of the Morris & Essex Line of New Jersey Transit, in Long Hill Township, New Jersey. The station consists of a small low-level side platform with a covered bench shelter on the inbound side of the single track. The station is located at the intersection of Mountain Avenue and Jersey Avenue in the Gillette portion of Long Hill Township. The station has 82 parking spaces and bike lockers. The station serves trains that go to Gladstone, Summit, Hoboken Terminal and New York Pennsylvania Station for commuters.

George Howell was an engineer who surveyed the area for the New Jersey West Line Railroad. The station is named after his wife, Rachel Gillette Cornish, whom he married while working in the area. Since the Gladstone Branch was opened, the station has never consisted more than a shelter for passengers on the side of the tracks, unlike nearby Stirling, which once boasted a large station depot built in 1872.
