We're actively building the industry's best one-stop shop for all your facility needs – with your help. Since Day One we've built our catalog based on your ideas — we are here not just for you, but because of you. Whether you’re focused on health, fitness, education, government, real estate, or hospitality, we’re a bit obsessive about bringing you the best products, at the best prices, as quickly as possible. Plus, our famously friendly Customer Experience Team is always here to help.
We try to bring a sense of balance and authenticity to everything we do. Our selection includes eco-friendly, safety-oriented, and specially-designed products to suit a variety of facilities. With a dedicated staff, we’re always striving for an honest connection with clients, sharing knowledge, resources, and pushing the industry in new and creative directions. In keeping with our mission, we’re excited to give back through land preservation initiatives and local conservation efforts in conjunction with The Trustees of Reservations.
Our home is our playground. We’re located in the Berkshires — a hotbed of culture surrounded by the great outdoors. You can find us in the foothills of the largest state forest in Massachusetts, where we hike, run, bike, and x-country ski on a daily basis. We believe in wowing our customers and in giving back in ways that help maintain, expand, and preserve our amazing forests and ridgelines.
We work with major gyms, hotels, hospitals, and other types of large-scale facilities. However, we’re enthusiastic about working with small local businesses as well. Our products range from our best selling gym wipes, high-quality cleaning supplies, wholesale towels, to state of the art fitness and exercise equipment, carefully handpicked wellness products, and much more. Whatever your expertise or business, we have the experience to help facilitate what you need. We pride ourselves on offering an incomparable customer experience and on helping businesses create the environment they hope to provide for their own clientele.
