Elevate Public Health & Well-Being

GOJO has dedicated more than 70 years to advancing the science of hand hygiene and developing safe and effective well-being solutions for away-from-home settings. In collaboration with thought leaders, organizations and individuals, who, like GOJO, are committed to improving health for people around the world, we are able to help reduce infection rates, improve public health and ultimately save lives. We have a long history of working with industry experts, such as professors and infection control professionals, who are “willing to change the status quo and think about things that are different to improve health outcomes," says GOJO Hygiene Sciences and Public Health Advancements Vice President, Jim Arbogast, Ph.D.

Our founding was based on this very notion. Our co-founder, Jerry Lippman, collaborated with a Kent State University chemistry professor to develop our first product with his knowledge of lanolin, oils, surfactants and creating stable gels. Today, collaboration remains vital to bringing the world’s brightest and most cutting-edge ideas to our product development process. “At the end of the day,” Dr. Arbogast explains, “it’s all about making advancements in public health.”
