ISRAEL: U.S. cleaning supplies manufacturer Simple Green is slated to build a factory in the Holon industrial zone. The factory will begin operating during the first quarter of 2008. The company has four factories, two in the U.S., and one each in New Zealand and Switzerland. Turnover was $200 million in 2006.
Simple Green will take over the premises of Petrotech Fuel Ltd., which has been its distributor in Israel for the past 15 years. Initially, the factory will have 40 employees and produce 100,000 products a month, but the factory is expected to double output after a year.
