Michael Phelps Partners with 800razors.com

by | Sep 22, 2015

Baltimore-based 800razors.com announced a strategic partnership with Michael Phelps, who will work with the company as an investor and spokesperson for The Ultimate Shave™.

The strategic partnership aligns 800razors.com with Phelps, the Baltimore native and most decorated swimmer in history, who relies upon a full-body shave for maximum performance in competition. According to a release, Phelps utilized The Ultimate Shave™ in preparation for U.S. Nationals in August where he posted the fastest times in the world this year in three individual events.

“As a swimmer, shaving my entire body is necessary for performance,” said Phelps, the most-decorated Olympian of all time. “The Ultimate Shave razors and shave cream truly makes a difference in protecting my skin and giving me that close comfortable shave I want and need in and out of the pool.”

“Michael Phelps has joined 800razors.com as a shareholder and spokesperson because he loved ‘The Ultimate Shave’ he was getting from using our razors,” said Phil Masiello, president and CEO of 800razors.com. “Michael not only believes in our product, he shares our enthusiasm for creating opportunities for others to succeed. We are committed to helping build back America and are proud to offer American-made products while providing employment opportunities through our affiliation with The Chimes.”

800Razors provides employment opportunities for people with developmental disabilities through a fulfillment affiliation with Chimes, a Baltimore-based non-profit that provides a wide variety of services, including vocational training to more than 19,000 people with disabilities throughout the United States. Many of the employees participate in Special Olympics, an organization which Phelps serves as a global ambassador and is also supported by the Michael Phelps Foundation.
