Phillips Supply Company



     Founded in 1947 by Charles and Claire Phillips, Phillips Supply Company

was formed as a “door to door” business that specialized in selling a wide

variety of janitorial products. In 1959 and 1966 respectively, Professional

Maintenance and Maintenance Methods were founded to provide labor

and support for Building Service Contractors, although these businesses

have since been divested from Phillips Supply Company.

More than 65 years later, Phillips Supply has grown to become one of the

largest Janitorial and Sanitary Distributors in the Midwest, servicing the Cincinnati and Portsmouth markets. Phillips Supply represents

the most respected manufacturers in the industry, ensuring the needs & objectives of our customer are not only met, but exceeded.

In 1999, Pamela Phillips Rossmann was appointed President after working in the business for 26 years, and she continues to lead the business to this day, making Phillips Supply one of the largest family/woman-owned businesses in the Jan/San Distributor industry.

Phillips Supply has a singular focus, to provide our customers with the highest quality solutions to building care needs.  Our entire team is dedicated to servicing our customer with focused training and
expertise in all aspects of building care. 
Being locally owned and managed, allows Phillips Supply to work closely with each
customer one-on-one, without the corporate approach to your business.


Our Purpose is to deliver an unparalleled customer experience, by consistently delivering high-quality solutions through our unique capabilities and expertise with exceptional customer service to the customers and markets we serve.



Our Vision is to be the first choice of our target customers in the distribution of janitorial-sanitary supplies, equipment, and related items to the healthcare, education, industrial, building service contractor, and other markets, in the areas we serve. We will be defined by a superior value proposition in all that we do.



Our Mission is to supply innovative, cost-effective, quality products with education, training, and technology to form solutions for our customer’s cleaning and sanitation needs. We help our customers reach their goals and objectives utilizing our dedicated staff and vendor partners.
