Our goal is simple: provide the best service in janitorial supply and exceed all client expectations. Let’s dive into these components a little further:


Service is the foundation of Colman-Wolf as a company. Our 100,000 square foot facility and over 2,000,000 + inventory of janitorial supplies assure that we deliver YOUR items when YOU want them – not only when we happen to be in the area. Our just-in-time service model minimizes your on-site inventory costs while maximizing your storage space. Colman-Wolf prides itself on the ability to customize a sound janitorial supply delivery program. We are extremely flexible with how you want to receive you product. Maybe you require dock delivery – or perhaps inside closet delivery; no matter what – “We do whatever it takes!”


Colman-Wolf has aligned itself with the best suppliers in the nation; those who provide innovative and sustainable cleaning, safety and packing solutions. We partner with these nationally recognized manufacturers to ensure that you never question product performance, configuration or reliability. If your goal is enhancing your image, implementing sustainable solutions, increasing productivity, breaking the chain of infection, improving the overall health and hygiene of your facility, or reducing the total costs – together, we will work to design and deliver the right solutions for your exact needs.


At Colman-Wolf, it is expected that every professional working here shares, lives and incorporates our Core Values. That means:

  • “We do whatever it takes.”
  • “We have fun.”
  • “We are passionate about what we do.”
  • “We have integrity.”


At Colman-Wolf, we can’t and will not assume anything. Our “Investigate” program is where we begin to uncover your needs. This is the foundation of our program and where our relationship begins. Our Professional Account Managers and I.C.E. representatives will meet with you and your team to truly understand your critical needs, wants and goals. The next step is to perform a site tour where we begin to create your needs / GAP analysis. Before presenting, we consult with our vendor partners and follow that with our customized “Investigate” solutions plan.

10 / 10 PLAN

Once the details of the needs analysis are explained, the GAP analysis is discussed and we have presented our final customized “Investigate” janitorial solutions plan, you can simply move forward and let our implementation team get started. Or, you can agree to select our 10 / 10 Program. Our team breaks into action to implement the steps necessary to execute the plan. We start monitoring and tracking the results to ensure the plans meets the 10 / 10. Simply put – if we don’t reduce your cost by 10% in 10 months, Colman-Wolf will credit you the difference – NO QUESTIONS ASKED!


Whether the needs of your business are local, regional or national, we are prepared to work for you and service all of your janitorial supply needs. If you need to simplify processes, standardize products or reduce your vendor base – we are your partner. Colman-Wolf currently services customers in 29 states and this map only continues to grow. Our affiliation with Afflink allows us to service the complete United States, Canada and Mexico. Afflink has been a global leader in supply chain optimization for than 35 years and when you boil it down, Colman and Afflink do one thing better than anyone: provide process and procurement solutions to help drive efficiencies in your business!


The very foundation of America was built by innovation and continues to grow in the same fashion. Why should your business be any different? This component is critical and we feel innovation is what defines the “Colman Advantage.” Our teams of professionals – along with our vendor partners – constantly explore and deliver the most innovative janitorial products and janitorial solutions to you and your company. These innovations often lead to cost saving, labor savings, productivity gains, and last but certainly not least – employee morale!


The health and well-being of your employees, staff, parents, visitors, patients and of the environment is our top priority. If just being environmentally sound or L.E.E.D. certified is your goal, our team of experts are ready to provide the janitorial solutions, systems and supplies necessary to carry out those goals.

Why do we do all this? To help others be more successful at what they do!”
