I was talking to my local supplier guy the other day. The recent acquisition of Safety Express by Amrasco up here in Canada has been good for me. I now can get ANY product that any company sells that’s owned by Amrasco. No ordering from another city, no shipping charges.... and I’m good friends with the dude that runs the local shop.... I can get it delivered to my shop, and usually he shows up with a coffee, or sometimes a 6 pack..... life’s good....

Cripes. I deal with a whack of different suppliers and service places all local. My main supplier was liquidating so stuff the other day. I picked up 15 cases of ddeoderizer for 12 bucks a case, 4 cases of defoamer for 20 a case and 12 gallons of wax for 5 bucks a gallon. All name stuff pioneer eclipse, butcher, envirochem. My girl there always gives me a heads up when they're clearing out. In the last month I picked up 25 gallons of concrete sealer a 5 gallon pail of rinse powder and 6 cases of stripper for $140, And no shipping.

Those great prices but that's all janitor brand crap.

You do know there is better stuff out there. Don't ya?
Better formulation, more concentrate (less water), more effective.

Oh well, at least you didn't pay retail. :headscratch:

Don't give me that BS about janitor crap Reeko!

Do you really think our carpet cleaning chems are that much different than those NAME brand janitorial products?

The bigger companies have many more chemists working on things than some one like bridgepoint's sole formulator.

FILM FORMERS! LOW TECH ! MUCH HIGHER PRICES !

Give me a break Reeko!

Yes huge difference. The chems they use here are the jan/San brands and are WEAK compared to the professional carpet cleaning brands. Very dilute, safe for our student workers BUT no where near as effective.
