TORONTO (ICIS news)--US specialty chemicals firm Zep will build a logistics centre in Pennsylvania and also plans to add production capacity there, creating 100 jobs over three years, the state’s government said on Wednesday.

The state was contributing $2.7m – comprising a $2m low-interest loan as well as grants and tax credits – to Zep’s project, it said.
