The Tranzonic Companies has invested more than $2 million to manufacture disinfecting wipes for its commercial and industrial customers at its West Knoxville facility. The company previously distributed wipes made by other companies and anticipates that heightened demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic will continue because of changing customer needs and habits.

During the ongoing pandemic, Tranzonic has experienced a significant increase in demand for disinfecting wipe products, which were previously distributed products made by other companies. Tranzonic projects that changed customer needs and habits will sustain the increased demand. Fast-track development of the new line took only seven months before the first wipes became available to the company’s commercial and industrial customers.

The wipes are registered on the Environmental Protection Agency’s N List, which signifies products that kill COVID-19 and other viral pathogens on surfaces when used as directed. Tranzonic is the only manufacturer of disinfecting wipes in Tennessee.

“Tranzonic makes essential products that have become even more critical during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Brian Rhoades, executive vice president of operations for Tranzonic. “We’re thankful to expand our employee base and manufacturing to serve the need for essential products. We also want to help our commercial and industrial clients, including businesses and schools, get the products they need to operate safely and protect their employees, customers and students.”

The disinfecting wipe line has created 15 new positions at the Knoxville facility. For more information about The Tranzonic Companies or to apply for open positions, visit
