OXO the company that makes all those nifty gadgets with rubber handles was picketed earlier this week by consumer products company Quirky. While I have never done any reviews for OXO, my mother and I both own and regularly use many OXO Good Grips tools and other OXO products. I had never heard of Quirky until I received an email earlier today from OXO explaining the whole incident. In addition to picketing the OXO offices in New York Quirky has posted a billboard two blocks from the OXO office in New York and posted on their social media channels about it.
What is all the hullabaloo about you may be wondering? Quirky is claiming that OXO "ripped off" their Upright Dust Pan design which is not what transpired. OXO has offered a very gracious explanation of the whole incident which you can read by going HERE.
In my experience OXO is a company that makes quality consumer products and I will continue to buy from and support OXO. I urge you to read the full article so you can be well informed on this incident.
You can follow OXO on FACEBOOK and TWITTER for updates on this matter and to learn about new products, deals, and company updates from OXO.
