Exceptional service. Exceptional supplies.
This has been at the heart of Checkers Cleaning and Maintenance Supplies since Ken Hewitt started the business in 1984. The company has humble beginnings – in the home of Ken’s parents. He worked from a desk in his bedroom and stored inventory in the covered porch. As the owner, salesman, accountant and deliveryman, he had a vision of what could be.
Over the years, Checkers has grown from a one-man operation to a company of 28 employees. Family has played a big role in the success and growth of this company. In the early days, Ken’s sister Tammy organized the clerical work and his brother Greg delivered supplies. As Ken and his wife Elaine’s family grew, the kids all pitched in and learned the business from a young age. Their son Ryan is now the Sales Director, Terry is the Operations Director, Owen is the Administrative Director and Carl is the Marketing Director.
Quality products and honest service has resulted in Checkers’ growing business moving to increasingly larger warehouse spaces. In 2006, Ken purchased a lot of land and built his first facility from the ground up. Countless hours and perseverance has paid off for Ken and his team in exponential growth. They continue to offer the friendly service and honest integrity they have become known for, enhancing the level of service their clients receive.
Checkers is not looking back and not slowing down.
