Community: How It Serves Your Business

You’ve no doubt heard the expression, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” In an era when “friends” means people you’ve only communicated with online, it’s more challenging than in the past to get a true sense of someone, or their brand. Are all those digital reviews accurate? In the second decade of the third millennium, we often click “Buy now” and hope for the best.

But here at Impact Absorbents, we do business a little differently. 

Our product, like our team, is actual and not virtual. And our story is reminiscent of the best Silicon Valley start-ups. Founder Gary Tharp created our flagship product, XSORB Universal, in the family’s garage back in 1992. Demand for this unique eco-friendly, residue-free super absorbent mushroomed, and Impact Absorbents quickly outgrew the garage for a 45,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Atascadero, California.

Today, 28 years on, the company manufactures and distributes more than 500 products to a global market. What’s more, we’re a woman-owned business, stewarding an environmentally responsible product line that has won numerous awards for being effective, ecological, and economical.

Yet despite being a leader in the spill containment and spill clean up field, we’ve retained the family feeling with which we launched our business. We treat everyone like family — not because we like their digital footprint, but because we know who they are.

While the web has connected us to people near and far and made doing business worldwide a breeze, we still believe community starts with who you know. We invite you to partner with us and be part of a network of innovative and forward-thinking suppliers.

It’s the best way to build community that serves your business, and keeps you on the leading edge.
