FROM COFFEE TO CLEAN CHEMICALSYoung entrepreneurs become preferred supplier of FDA registered USP hand sanitizer products for national B2B accounts
Agility Saves a Local Business
Principals Constantine Zotos’ and Mitchell Webber’s Houston-based, nitrogen-infused cold brew coffee business had a client base of 100 when Covid-19 arrived in early 2020, threatening their business. As workers began to tele-commute, coffee demand collapsed. The duo brainstormed ideas to save their company and shifted from coffee to hand sanitizers to fill society’s newest immediate need. They formulated a product with a 70% USP ethanol base and the new Modern Chemical was born.
Alive and Well Despite Covid-19
By mid-March Modern Chemical had a staff of 40 and filled its first major order. Today, the new company boasts a staff of 60 and has moved into a larger facility. Modern Chemical has built a reputation on agility, reliability, short turn-times, and the quality of their gel-based product. Their national client base ranges from local restaurants to industrial equipment operators, janitorial and paper services, the food and entertainment industry and pharmaceutical distributors.
Modern Chemical always puts safety first, is registered with the FDA and EPA, and is an equal opportunity employer.
