GOJO opens new state-of-the-art plant

GOJO, the inventors of PURELL™ continues to invest in both sustainability and the tough soils market, with the launch of a brand new, cutting-edge manufacturing plant.

Located in Croissy Beaubourg, France, it has been designed to meet the requirements of the heavy-duty industry, minimise its environmental impact, and, ultimately, help the company to increase its capacity to serve customers even more efficiently.

Building on the $400million that was invested in 2021 to increase manufacturing capabilities worldwide, the €4.3million investment in this new building enables GOJO to offer innovative products, such as heavy-duty soaps and wipes, as well as cleaning wipes, at excellent price points. Its fully automated systems are capable of producing formats ranging from 500ml bottles to 5 litre refills, and everything in between.

Designed to reduce the carbon footprint during the manufacturing process, the plant minimises product wastage, water and energy consumption. Its bespoke ‘Cleaning-in-Place’ systems increase efficiencies, whilst also guaranteeing the highest possible levels of hygiene. Additionally, thanks to its location, the supply chain is shortened and there is a reduction in the need to fly and ship products, further minimising emissions.

Chris Wakefield, V.P. European Marketing and Managing Director UK & Ireland, GOJO Industries-Europe Ltd. commented: “Although we are best known for skin health and sanitising, the very first product GOJO developed was a heavy-duty hand cleaner back in 1946. Today, we are just as committed to helping heavy-industry workers safely and effectively clean and care for their hands. Our new manufacturing plant in Croissy Beaubourg is helping us to do just that. Its state-of-the-art design is increasing our capacity, whilst lowering our carbon footprint.”

GOJO offers a full range of heavy-duty hand cleaning formulations, which effectively clean away tough soils, whilst keeping skin healthy. These include GOJO Hand & Surface Scrubbing Wipes, GOJO Natural Hand Cleaner, GOJO Olive Hand Cleaner, and GOJO® Supromax Hand Cleaner.
