In 1886 he purchased the flooring business from the company and renamed it Johnson's Prepared Paste Wax Company. A few years later he established his own factory for manufacturing floor waxes and wood finishes. When his son, Herbert Fisk Johnson became a partner in 1906, the firm was renamed S. C. Johnson & Son.
