About Parish Supply

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, selling cleaning and janitorial supplies for over 65 years and has been a trusted online retailer for over 14 years.


The Company was first founded in 1911 and began making brooms and brushes. The Parish Broom Factory hand sowed 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. He began at a young age, alongside his father, spending time at the Syracuse, NY based warehouse watching first-hand the needs of customers. While Building Service Contractors, Janitors, Heads of Housekeeping, Facilities Managers and many individual customers purchased supplies and equipment in the warehouse and online, they would talk with Mike and staff about the challenges they met. By listening to them and paying attention to their needs and wants, Mike became 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 for customers. Customers are welcome to contact us with product and project questions. They can also view our large library of resources and tutorials.


Unmatched Expertise

As Mike’s knowledge is unmatched in the industry, this has greatly affected the selection of products we offer at Parish Maintenance Supply. Each product and piece of equipment is tested by Mike himself, and is often shared with customers for their opinions. This approach has led to Parish to not having huge selections in each category but a manageable select few. These hand-picked offerings make elaborate customer review systems 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 Palmeter Street, 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!


Family-Run Company

We are very proud of our family-run company and the solid values of quality and service we’ve maintained through our long history. Please feel free to visit us in Syracuse, NY, or purchase securely from our online store.  Contact us today with any questions you may have. We’re available to help with product selection as well and offer tips and advice for your cleaning and maintenance projects.
