Sanitary Maintenance's logo and DDI System's logo

The jan/san industry has no shortage of products. But it can be challenging knowing which products are the “real deal” and worth recommending to customers. What can seem innovative one year can easily be just a fad the next. 

However, distributors can trust in products bearing the emblem of the Sanitary Maintenance Distributor Choice Award. These products have been vetted by distributors themselves and proven to meet end users’ needs. 

Sanitary Maintenance is proud to honor the following 40 products as the winners of its 2019 Distributor Choice Award, presented by DDI System

To pick this year’s winners, Sanitary Maintenance subscribers received an email ballot with the opportunity to pick up to five products considered to be the best in the industry. Each ballot contained a randomized selection of products. 

Distributors identified their favorite products for whatever reason they wanted: best selling, most preferred, most recommended, most innovative, etc. 

Nearly 300 products were considered for this award. Entries either ran in a 2018 issue of Sanitary Maintenance or on its website
