Zep Inc., a consumable chemical packaged goods company that manufactures a wide variety of high-performance maintenance and cleaning chemicals, opened its world headquarters in Eagan, Minnesota.
The firm’s new 12,000 square foot facility includes a fully equipped and dedicated laboratory, which is more than twice the size of the last lab, administrative and leadership offices and a large training facility. It will soon also house an operational car wash designed for testing new innovations.
“We couldn’t be more excited about our new space. This is the first time in more than 10 years that we’ve been able to combine our industry leading research and development team under the same roof as our other business leaders,” noted Zep Vehicle Care president, Steve Nichols. “Our new headquarters will significantly enhance our teams’ creativity, teamwork and agility while helping our customers deliver more of the game-changing innovation that we have been known for,” continued Nichols.
“The Zep Vehicle Care team has a proven track record of understanding their customers’ needs and delivering solutions that drive revenue and profit for those customers,” said John K. Morgan, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Zep Inc. “It makes sound business sense to make sure that the Zep Vehicle Care team has the tools they need to bring The MOST to car wash operators, and in turn, provide the most value to the Zep Inc. shareholders.”
