WAXIE Sanitary Supply, San Diego, is celebrating 60 years in business by making making charitable contributions to local organizations.

These contributions, which were made in April, are just one way the company is saying "thank you" to the customers and communities the company has been fortunate enough to do business with for the past 60 years.

Few would have predicted when the company first made its humble start in October 1945 as San Diego Janitor Supply and Chemical Company that it would grow into the industry leader it is today. Original owners Harry and Morris Wax made a commitment to make customer service their primary focus, and this decision has been the key to longevity and success.

The company’s motto is "Serving the Customer is the Focus of Everything We Do."

Today, Morris’ son Charles Wax is the president of the company and he continues the customer service legacy of his father. "We need to stay responsive to our customers’ needs and focus on the future. And we are willing to invest in the future." A willingness to invest in the future has allowed the company to become America’s largest family owned distributor of sanitary supplies and equipment.

According to Wax, "If they were alive today my father and uncle would be amazed at how much we have grown and changed, but they would not be surprised of the fact that our principles of excellent customer service have remained unchanged for 60 years."
