Who is Zogics?

We combine the convenience and loyalty of a neighborhood shop with the innovation and expediency of an online destination. From health, fitness, and educational products, to spa, hospitality and safety necessities, we make it easy for you to run a clean, healthy, and thriving facility. We manufacture, source, test, study, and curate the highest quality products available to fit all your customer’s needs. Offering the solutions you need when you need them, you won't find yourself waiting weeks for the wipes and towels you needed yesterday. Plus, our Customer Experience Team is here to ensure that your shopping experience is exactly as you wish.

At Zogics, giving back to our community is as much a part of our culture as is working and playing hard. Since opening our doors in 2006, we’ve been a member of 1% For The Planet and have committed to donating 1% of all sales to land preservation groups. Each year, we donate tens of thousands of dollars to help maintain and preserve the amazing forests and ridgelines that we hike, run, bike, ski, and explore on a daily basis; some of which are just outside our office doors.

Whether we’re huddled around a table drinking shots of espresso, or at our favorite local pub, we love making decisions together as a team. You’re always welcome at our office, but don’t be surprised if you’re met by a 100 lbs. Rhodesian Ridgeback named S’bu. He’s a noble beast, and just like everyone else at Zogics, he’ll be happy to see you.

If you’re unable to come by in person, and if you have questions or would like to speak with us for any reason at all, please give us a call at 888.623.0088 or email us at hello [at] zogics [dot] com. To get the latest scoop on special promotions and to learn more about us, and the businesses we serve, be sure to follow us online! 

 

What do customers say about us?

"It is definitely the staff that takes this company to the next level. Anytime I have had a question I am able to call/ email and actually get a response from someone who sounds like they have a hand in the business rather than just some customer service person who is unable to help."

"Zogics has gone above and beyond for us and your good deeds will not go unnoticed. You bet we will be telling everyone about your products and staff, even more so than we already do! Thank you again! You all are great!"

"Zogics has the best customer service! I can call them any time of day if I have a problem or a question, and their staff is always helpful and courteous.

Thank you for your follow-up and excellent service. You guys are A+ in customer service."

"We could not be more impressed with Zogics!"
