About us

Our Story

Enzyme Industries, Inc. was founded in 1970 in Lima, Ohio as a manufacturer of liquid enzymatic products for specialty applications. Thomas Gregg became the principal owner in the late 1970’s. Upon his passing in 1983, his son Geoff Gregg became President and CEO and Geoff remains in that position. In 1990, the operation was moved to a new facility in Heath, Ohio which is where it continues to do business today.

Since it’s inception, the company’s focus has been to manufacture chemical free, environmentally and user friendly products for specialty applications. Our products are marketed to the Dental, Pet, RV, Turfgrass and Sports Medicine markets and are distributed through a network of distributors and dealers throughout the United States and Canada.

Geoff

GEOFF GREGG

Geoff is a 1976 graduate of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio in which he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing.

He earned his first paycheck at the age of 11 years old working in the receiving department of the family owned Gregg’s Department Store that was founded by his Great Grandfather in 1885. At Gregg's Department Store's peak, it employed over 300 people and operated in a 200,000 square foot facility in Downtown Lima, Ohio. At age 16 Geoff moved to the Store’s Mens Department as a sales person and continued in that role throughout his high school and college years. Upon graduation from college, he became manager & buyer for the Mens Department of the Store. Upon the death of his father in 1983, Geoff became the President and CEO of both Gregg’s Department Store and Enzyme Industries, Inc. The Gregg family had made a long term commitment to keep its family owned department store in Downtown Lima while other retail stores left the downtown area for the malls. In 1985 after 100 years in business, Geoff made the difficult decision to close the family’s department store and focus his attention on Enzyme Industries, Inc.

In his free time, Geoff enjoys his beloved rescue dogs, golf, boating, and traveling especially to favorite places New Zealand, Israel and Kauai, Hawaii. He has been a lifelong and recently long suffering fan of the Cleveland Browns, and was a longtime season ticket holder. Recently he has gained an interest in becoming a Barbecue Pitmaster, but has a long way to go in becoming a master of that art. Another of his interests are in ancient prophetic manuscripts and how they relate to current events. Geoff currently resides on the beautiful shorefront near Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
