Importing, distributing cleaning chemicals.

Zep Inc. has officially opened its wholly-owned foreign entity in the People’s Republic of China. The company, registered as Jie Pu Hui Tong Trading Co. Ltd., is importing and distributing Zep Inc.’s maintenance and cleaning chemicals from the US and Europe.

The company is focused on the industrial manufacturing sector and other commercial markets including automotive aftermarket, aviation, and energy. Thus far, Zep China has developed an active distribution network covering more than 50 major metropolitan areas across China, the company said.

 “With China having the second largest economy in the world and over 30% of its GDP coming from the manufacturing sector, we feel our broadly defined, high efficacy industrial-MRO and automotive portfolio is appropriately aligned with market opportunities undergoing strong organic growth,” said John K. Morgan, chairman, president and CEO of Zep Inc.

“We intend to develop our business in China in the same vertical markets where we excel in the U.S. with established local sales, warehousing and logistics support in the three major cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou,” said Joe Krystofik, VP of international business development of Zep Inc.
