"The way is clear for final construction of Defense Soap's Headquarters on Liberty Avenue next to German's Villa," states Mayor Forthofer. "Owner Guy Sako reports that the first new Vermilion employee has been hired. The international marketer of anti-fungal soap products is moving along with its plan to consolidate operations in Vermilion with room to expand."

"Defense Soap markets with a strong commitment to the environment," reports the mayor. "Landscaping with generous tree planting is in the plans. Guy Sako estimates his company will occupy the new location in January 2020."
