GOJO Expands Hand Sanitizer ProductionJune 10, 2020
GOJO Industries has announced the addition of two new facilities, both in northeast Ohio.
GOJO has purchased a manufacturing plant in Maple Heights, Ohio, for $US25 million, Cleveland.com reports. The facility will be used almost exclusively for production of the company’s Purell brand hand sanitizer, which has seen a spike in demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition, GOJO has agreed to lease a property in Navarre, Ohio. The Navarre facility will serve as a warehouse and distribution center for GOJO’s hand sanitizer products. Once fully operational, the two facilities will allow GOJO to hire more than 200 new employees.
GOJO Industries, Inc. is a privately held corporation headquartered in Akron, Ohio, with offices worldwide. GOJO produces a variety of hand- and skin-care-related products for a number of markets, including health care, food processing, manufacturing, automotive, education, government, and military.
