CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Swisher Hygiene Inc. ("Swisher Hygiene") (Nasdaq:SWSH) (TSX: SWI), a leading provider of essential hygiene and sanitation products and services, today announced that it will relaunch its DALEY™ brand at the 2012 ISSA/INTERCLEAN Show at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois from October 16-19. Acquired by Swisher Hygiene in September 2011, Daley International ("DALEY") is one of the largest manufacturers and marketers of private-label and brand name institutional and industrial cleaning products in the United States.

With its roots firmly in Chicago and dating back over 100 years, DALEY has a rich history of product innovation, reliability and unparalleled customer care. Today, the DALEY™ brand includes an extensive line of floor care, personal care, laundry, housekeeping, food service and building maintenance products along with a private label program tailored to meet its customers' exact needs. To better reflect DALEY's leading position and enhance its future growth opportunities across all product and service categories, Swisher Hygiene will introduce a modernized image and marketing materials to promote consistency and embody the product innovation that DALEY continues to pursue.  In concert with the rebranding, Swisher has dedicated a new highly experienced and skilled sales team responsible for prospecting, selling to, and servicing DALEY's current and future clients.

"The DALEY brand carries a great deal of brand equity in the industry, and we believe the ISSA/INTERCLEAN show is the perfect time to showcase DALEY's new brand and products, while also highlighting Swisher Hygiene's ability to manufacture an extensive array of products at all of our strategically located regional chemical facilities," said Thomas Byrne, Interim President and Chief Executive Officer of Swisher Hygiene. "This rebranding initiative will allow us to effectively expand the non-service segment of our business and reach a broader segment of the chemical industry.  DALEY is a shining example of how Swisher Hygiene continues to provide best-in-class products as well as outstanding customer service."

The new DALEY brand image is reflected in its marketing materials and should resonate with prospects and better communicate its points of differentiation, helping to further distinguish the company as a progressive brand and an industry leader.  Attendees interested in viewing the new DALEY brand and learning about the company's different products and services are encouraged to visit booth #608.
