Janitorial & Sanitation

Janitorial and Sanitation Supply (commonly referred to as jan-san) distributors sell cleaning and maintenance chemicals, supplies and accessories to all type of customers. Jan-San distributors have been involved with supplying cleaning supplies for the prevention of the spread of diseases such as the H1N1 viruses adding a degree of complexity to their business. Because of extensive contact with hazardous chemicals that are regulated for OSHA and DOT, government regulation is a significant issue in the industry. Compliance with product labeling rules and use of MSDS along with lot control issues makes this a difficult business.
