The view a few steps outside our office! We abut the largest state forest in MA (16,500 acres)

Who is Zogics?

We’re a super nimble one-stop resource for businesses in the business of serving others.  We make our customers look really good. Whether they are in the health, fitness, spa, hospitality, educational, you-name-it industry, Zogics provides what they need to keep their facilities clean, safe and happy. Yup! We have manufactured, sourced, tested, studied and curated the best products to fit our customer’s needs. Everything from soup to nuts.  I mean wipes to towels. Then we help our customers every step of the way with the best, most informed, friendly customer service team in the galaxy. Our goal is not sales, but super satisfied, loyal customers!

Our culture is firmly rooted in the notion that working hard and playing hard and giving back to the community go hand in hand in hand.  As a member of` 1% For The Planet since our founding in 2006, we have committed to donating 1% of all sales to land preservation groups.  Our donation, tens of thousands each year, 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 door.  

Decisions are frequently made over shots of espresso (or something stronger), either at the office or at our favorite local hang out. If you ever stop by our office and you are met by a 100lb Rhodesian Ridgeback named S’bu, please don’t be alarmed – he is a noble beast and, just like everyone else at Zogics, he’ll be happy to see you.

Can’t make it in person?  If you have any questions or would like to speak with us for any reason at all, please call us at 888.623.0088 or email us at hello@zogics.com.  Oh, and be sure to follow us online!  It’s a great way to interact, learn more about the industries we serve, and get the scoop on special promotions:

Paul LeBlanc, Founder & Owner alt

Originally from Boston, Paul attended Babson College and the University of Economics in Prague.  A lifelong entrepreneur that included stints in the telecommunications and green energy industries, Paul founded Zogics in 2006 after determining a need for a portable wipe to clean hands after changing a bicycle tire. Sometimes businesses start from the simplest of ideas. Since then, Zogics has developed a wide range of products and operates multiple warehouses to serve customers located throughout all 50 states and in over 30 countries.  Paul is also on the Advisory Council and a member of the Marketing Committee for the Trustees of Reservations, the nation’s oldest statewide land conservation organization. Paul is a former member of the U.S. National Cycling Team and was a three-time Junior National Champion and US Record Holder.  These days, Paul can often be found hiking in the Berkshires with his lovely wife, Lauren, and trail running with his Rhodesian Ridgeback, S’bu.

Way to go Abby!  Abby loves going on adventures around the Berkshires: hiking, swimming and exploring wherever the day takes her. She even took a yoga class once.
