At Hydro-Chem Systems (HCS), we believe in fostering strong partnerships with dedicated professionals in the cleaning industry. In this blog post, we will provide valuable insights into the process of becoming a distributor and highlight the remarkable advantages of being a part of the Hydro-Chem Systems family. If you are passionate about providing exceptional cleaning solutions, we invite you to explore the benefits of joining our esteemed distributor program.

Why does HCS need distributors?

Hydro-Chem Systems was founded and still has its sole location in Western Michigan. HCS has the capability to supply chemical customers in about every US state and Canadian province in North America. We partner with distributors to allow customers in local areas to receive quicker and better access to our industry-leading products while reducing logistical costs and transit times associated with shipping.

Distributors must complete an onboarding process with HCS that requires in-depth chemical training along with proper documentation. This is because we expect customers to receive the same standard of excellence and support from our distributors as they would experience when working directly with our staff.

Our passion is to WOW our customers with amazing results and customer service and our distributors are held to the very same standards!

  • HCS distributors must have experience in the fleet and industrial pressure washing industry. Our cleaning heritage is the foundation of HCS. We partner with distributors that have experience in the industry and understand the challenges of their customers.
  • Many distributors operate brick-and-mortar pressure washer dealerships. Others may have locations with regular customer access and bulk inventory on hand.
