THE NAME …
Inasmuch as many people over the years have thought this to be the surname of our founder and president, it is, in fact, a small town in New England – just south west of Boston, Massachusetts. Scott Morling, our founder, chose this as a fictitious business name for a college marketing assignment while enrolled in Business Management in Ottawa, Ontario. Ultimately, the name was chosen for its tall letter stems.
Holliston’s Inc. is a Mississauga, Ontario based privately owned and operated company with sole Canadian ownership. Holliston’s owner & president is originally from the courier & transportation industry which is one more reason why we are so conscientious and committed toward fast, reliable and accurate service.
Holliston’s distributes a complete line of shipping, packaging, industrial, warehouse, and safety supplies. From boxes, carts and sanitation supplies to pallet trucks, respirators, personal protection equipment (PPE), and pallet racking, Holliston’s has positioned itself with product diversity while developing one-stop shopping as a single source supplier which cuts customers’ procurement costs. We even go so far as to inventory customer’s individual specific product requirements.
With our Head Office and main warehouse centrally located in the City of Mississauga (Greater Toronto Area), we are able to service customers from coast to coast throughout Canada and the U.S., either directly or through our vast business partner network. We also have a major distribution centre located in the Montreal, Quebec area. International customers are encouraged to contact us as we are also able to ship internationally.
Now celebrating our 15th anniversary, our first sale took place in March 1995 with a company in Scarborough, Ontario and we can proudly state that this customer continues to do business with Holliston’s today.
Having spent more than 11 years in the courier and transportation industry building businesses for other people, Scott wanted something he could call his own. He had some experience with packaging supplies while involved in the transportation industry and felt he could do a much better job for customers than his competition could by focusing all of his attention toward this industry on a full time basis. Thus, from his home in Mississauga, Ontario, Holliston Products was born. Driven by the need and desire to service others, he quickly built a distributorship of supplies that grew in its diversity. Commonly known by their customers as the “GO-TO-PEOPLE”, Holliston Products realized significant growth and eventually incorporated in 2003. The name was then changed to Holliston’s Inc.
As a result of Scott’s drive and determination to offer customers a superior alternative to that of his competitors, Holliston’s quickly became and remains today a major player in the distribution of shipping, packaging, industrial & safety supplies. Due to Holliston's vast business partner network and group purchasing power, they created a Redistribution Division specifically designed for our smaller competitors to purchase through.
