Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Tide's Right at I-Flow
Finally, Cramer interviewed the CEO of Arch Chemicals (ARJ), Michael Campbell.
Campbell said that the Environmental Protection Agency just gave the company permission to market in the U.S. its Purista, a treatment that helps prevent odor buildup in fabrics.
He added that his company has had success with Purista in Europe, and that the product will soon be available in major retailers like Wal-Mart.Campbell said that Arch Chemicals is a biocides company, and that it has high hopes for its water chemical business. Arch's water chemical business has "stunk in terms of profitability," Campbell said, noting that it turned in a 2% margin last year. Water represents a third of the company, and Campbell said that the company is actively implementing a plan to drive top-line results and margins higher.
