About Our Company

Parish Maintenance Supply provides a wide range of cleaning and janitorial products and equipment to both the industrial cleaning industry as well as the individual who wishes to achieve the same great results in their own home. The Company has been in business for over 100 years, has been selling cleaning and janitorial supplies for over 70 years, and has been a trusted online retailer for over 18 years.


The Company was first founded in 1911 and began making brooms and brushes. The Parish Broom Factory hand-sewed and stapled as well as refilled brooms and brushes for many years. The Company adapted to changes in the industry and weathered raw material shortages through two world wars. In 1947, the company was taken in a new direction and began selling cleaning and janitorial supplies. Parish Maintenance Supply was born.


Current Management

Mike Gosson Parish OwnerParish Maintenance Supply is currently operated by Mike Gosson, second generation owner. At a young age and alongside his father, he began to spend time at the Syracuse, NY based warehouse where he saw, first-hand, the needs of customers. Building Service Contractors, Janitors, Heads of Housekeeping, Facilities Managers, and many individual customers would purchase supplies and equipment in the warehouse and online and, while doing so, would talk with Mike and staff about their challenges. It was in listening to them and eventually joining in on their conversations that Mike became so knowledgeable in cleaning industry products, equipment, and methods. Having someone this experienced at the helm of the company makes the products and equipment Parish sells not only the best selection for any job, but also makes Mike and his staff invaluable resources to unsure customers. Customers are welcome to contact us with product and project questions or to view our large library of resources and tutorials.


Unmatched Expertise

Mike’s unmatched knowledge of the industry has greatly effected the selection of products we offer at Parish Maintenance Supply. Each product and piece of equipment considered for sale is tested by Mike, himself, for efficacy and is often shared with customers for their opinions. This approach has led to Parish not having huge selections in each category but a manageable select few. These hand-picked offerings ensure that elaborate customer review systems are unnecessary at Parish, as every product and piece of equipment has passed a rigorous assessment to even be offered for purchase.


Our Syracuse, NY Location

The warehouse is currently located on 114 Palmeter Street, Syracuse where customers may visit and are free to shop the items in stock. Unless sent directly from the manufacturer, products and equipment are dispatched to online, phone, and fax customers from this warehouse. Every piece of equipment sent to customers from the warehouse is unboxed and inspected to be sure that it is operating properly. This is very uncommon in any industry!
