Labor Day is an occasion for honoring the American worker. Walex is proud to have a team of more than 60 dedicated workers at our facility just outside of Wilmington, North Carolina.
Our diverse and talented staff spans multiple departments. We have Ph.D. chemists who ensure Walex is on the cutting edge of product development, experienced sales managers supported by a knowledgeable customer service staff, and a hardworking production team that fulfills orders accurately and efficiently.
We’ve come from humble beginnings—our father/son co-founders, Bob and Bill Williams, created the first Walex product in their kitchen four decades ago—but we’ve grown significantly. We are now the number one supplier for portable sanitation, waste treatment, and odor control products in commercial and consumer applications.
We develop, manufacture, and ship products globally to more than 80 countries. We have been a respected supplier to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Olympics in Beijing, Carnaval in Brazil, RVs in New Zealand, buses in Mexico, portable toilets at construction sites worldwide, merchant ships in Spain, movie sets in Canada, coffee fields in Colombia, World Cup soccer matches, and in the Panama Canal expansion project.
But we don’t just want to celebrate our Walex workers; we want to honor the dedicated customers we serve. We might not be the most glamorous industry, but you all work hard and don’t shy away from a tough job.
To you and every other American worker, thank you.
