Lemur Licensing to Represent Blue Rhino
Marietta, GA – June 1, 2012 – Lemur Licensing, a full-service-licensing agency that specializes in trademark and brand licensing, announced today that it has entered into a licensing representative agreement with Ferrellgas, L.P., to represent the Blue Rhino® trademark for consumer product licensing. Blue Rhino is the leading name in propane tank exchange. The brand is available at 45,000 retail stores in 50 states and Puerto Rico.
The Ferrellgas, L.P.-owned trademarks that will be available to license are Blue Rhino® and the Blue Rhino character. In 1994, Blue Rhino – named for the color of a propane flame and the endangered animal – launched America’s first branded tank exchange program.
Today, Blue Rhino is more than propane, with a full line of products at the heart of outdoor living. This includes propane tanks, grills, camp stoves and patio heaters. “Blue Rhino has widespread distribution, strong brand recognition and appeal and is known for helping to make backyard experiences possible. The strength of the brand across a number of product categories naturally leads us to pursue a licensing program,” says Chris Hartley, Vice President of Marketing, Blue Rhino.
“We look forward to launching the search for select Blue Rhino licensing partners in the categories of outdoor cooking, backyard entertaining, and camping at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas June 12-14,” adds John Merrick, President of Lemur Licensing. The Lemur Licensing booth number is 7129.
