Summary

In 1989, Lever & Kitchen (soaps and detergents) and Rexona (personal products) merged to form L&K:Rexona with the head office of the new company located at Rexona's North Rocks site.

Lever Brothers New Zealand and L&K:Rexona then amalgamated to become a truly Australasian company in 1993 when it combined the Australian and New Zealand detergents and personal products businesses under one management structure and one trading name, Lever Rexona. In 2000 Lever Rexona merged with Unilever Foods to form Unilever Australasia.
