CHINA: Zep Inc. has opened its wholly-owned foreign entity in the People’s Republic of China. The company, registered as Jie Pu Hui Tong Trading Co.

It 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.
