In 1938, Max Stetson started his company with a simple philosophy of building relationships based on trust. Today, that same culture is alive and well at M.D. Stetson Company, Inc. Stetson has a strong commitment to innovation. Our inventions, including the Strapavac, the world’s first backpack vacuum, and Stetco Maintainer, the world’s first mop-on restorer, revolutionized our entire industry. Now in its third generation of family ownership, Stetson continues to flourish. Stetson is proud to be the leading independently owned and operated cleaning and building maintenance supplies distributor in New England.
