WOOSTER, Ohio — With hand sanitizer in high demand, GOJO is seeking additional help at its Wooster facility.

The Akron-based company is the manufacturer of Purell hand sanitizer, which has become a highly sought after product amid concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19).

"Did you know that the GOJO Wooster facility right here on 585 is one of the world's largest manufacturers of hand sanitizer? That's right, this facility is now being relied on more than ever to increase its production of Purell that the world so desperately needs," Wooster Area Chamber of Commerce president Justin Starlin said in a Facebook video advertising the openings. "You can help in those efforts by applying for the open positions that are now available here at the Wooster campus. The positions will assist with the production and distribution of Purell throughout the nation."

According to Starlin, there is flexibility in both the hours and the job positions that are needed. A full list of openings can be found at this link.
