Highlighting Peter Zehr & CarrollCLEAN

August 17, 2023

The Business:

CarrollCLEAN specializes in the mixing and production of cleaning products for both domestic and commercial use.

About Peter:

Originally from Canada, Peter moved to Texas about twenty years ago and has been living in Garland since 2021. After various career shifts, in 2018 he acquired CarrollCLEAN and set up his own sanitation product manufacturing and packaging business. The past few years have brought a variety of challenges including supply chain and hiring issues. As a member of the Chamber and the DCMA, Peter has been able to crowdsource ideas from other manufacturers in the same boat. “It makes a difference to talk to other people who are having the same challenges and to swap ideas with them,” he said.

The Case:

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and a growing demand for cleaning products, Peter and his team needed to scale staff up to 270 people within six weeks. Working with the Chamber gave them the resources they needed to spread the word about job openings, access grant funding for training and install health protocols and screening practices in place to keep staff safe.

Value of Joining the Chamber:

“The contacts, the business and personal contacts through the Chamber with other businesses and with government agencies.”

Main Takeaway:

You don’t have to go it alone! Connecting with the Chamber can help you access professionals in similar industries who can help you brainstorm solutions to your biggest challenges.
