October 17, 2013

Affiliate companies, Nice-Pak Products, Inc. and PDI, Inc., leaders in developing, manufacturing and marketing wet wipe solutions, announced the opening of their new world-class Innovation Center in Montvale, NJ. This center will deliver products for healthcare, consumer and commercial markets including surface disinfection, surface cleaning, skin antisepsis, hand hygiene and personal care.  

The companies have headquarters in Orangeburg, NY and Flint, Wales, UK.

The 28,000 square foot Innovation Center is equipped with state-of-the-art lab space, and will house 60 full-time employees dedicated to the company's research and development operations, with approximately 15 additional positions to be added over the next 18 months.

"Each year our products touch consumers 150 billion times. Not only do we make a significant difference through our sustainability initiatives but we also have the opportunity to help educate families and communities on the important role they can play in promoting the health and wellness of people and the environment," says Robert Julius, CEO of Nice-Pak. "The new facility affords us the opportunity to continue providing superior products while supporting our commitment to the environment through the use of sustainable materials and packaging."

"More than 100,000 lives are lost each year in the U.S. to preventable healthcare and community acquired infections," says PDI CEO, Zachary Julius. "PDI is dedicated to developing solutions and promoting education to help fight against preventable infections. This new space is an investment in our shared, purpose-driven future."

Nice-Pak, founded in 1957, is a global leader in the design, manufacturing, marketing and distribution of premium quality branded and private label pre-moistened wipes. Headquartered in Orangeburg, NY, Nice-Pak brands include Nice 'n Clean, Grime Boss, Sani-Hands and Wet Nap.
