Help Sanitary Maintenance With Jan/san Distributor Sales Survey

Sanitary Maintenance and ISSA need your help. Every other year, we work together to create the “Report on Sanitary Supply Distributor Sales,” an overall look at the market for cleaning chemicals, supplies, equipment and paper products.

Not surprisingly, this biennial study is one of our most requested pieces of information. Distributors often use this data to guide their purchasing and sales efforts.

But to conduct such valuable research, we need distributors’ participation. You should have already received this national survey in your email. We need as many distributors as possible to complete this survey in order to provide the most accurate depiction of the market.

We know we are asking distributors to provide sensitive information. That is why individual responses are kept strictly confidential and data is only used in aggregate. Your sales data is used for statistical purposes only.

In the November issue of Sanitary Maintenance, editors will be analyzing the data to identify changes in the market and try to predict what the future may hold for distributors. The complete results also will be featured in that issue, as well as posted online at and available from ISSA.

If you haven’t already done so, I encourage all of you to check your inbox for this survey and spend some time filling it out. Yes, it will take more than a few minutes, but I think you’ll find the effort worthwhile.
