Full Description

Zeno-Chem was established in 1983 by Mr. JHM Stols, where he started manufacturing a single product. With little more than an entrepreneurial spirit, a lot of hard work, dedication and some chemistry background, Jan Stols (fondly remembered as Dingaan), grew his enterprise into a successful and sustainable medium-sized business.

Since his tragic death in a helicopter accident in 2005, the business was taken over by his son Herman. As industrial chemist Herman added immeasurable value to the business, especially in terms of new product development. In his reign of about two and a half years he managed to steer this ship to align it with modern management techniques.

Since Herman’s passing in 2008, Zeno-Chem has become a dynamic WORC (woman owned and run company). Lizanne Stols is presently holding the reigns and is proud of each of the products in the range of about 2000 items.

At present all cleaning chemicals, washing powders, polishes and deoblocks are internally formulated, manufactured, quality controlled and continuously improved to meet our customers’ requirements. Other products include cleaning rags, brush ware, paper products, dispensers, work wear and other ad hoc products based on individual customer needs.

Continuous research is conducted in order to keep products aligned with market standards e.g. SABS and ISO. Zeno-Chem is equipped with an onsite laboratory to ensure that the above standards are met, together with new product development, quality control and quality assurance of manufactured products.

Distribution is conducted from the Zeno-Chem factory situated in the industrial area of Meyerton, Gauteng, South Africa, with a delivery fleet of 6 vehicles. Although Zeno-Chem delivers to a wide geographical spread of clients our aim is to deliver within 24 hours from receipt of order, dependent on order size and location.
