What Our Customers Are Saying

As the manager of the warehouse, I admire the manner in which the CIC team manager works with us. There always seems to be an issue and opportunity to improve a ordering process, packaging, safety or a cleanup issue. The CIC manager takes a look, we discuss the issue and he brings back solutions we might never have found. It took a little time but CIC has earned a valuable place in my department.

Lincoln Thomas
Manager, Warehouse Operations

I could not be happier with the choice my company made to choose Consumers Interstate Corporation as our preferred office and janitorial supply vendor. The CIC team never pressured us to make decisions, they were very patient with us and the entire team bent over backwards to make everyone happy… They have a “will do” attitude instead of the typical “no, we can’t do that” attitude typical of similar providers. It is rare these days to find a team of individuals whom you really feel are working for the best outcome for your company. I truly feel we are in great hands and look forward to saving lots of money with them as our preferred office and janitorial supply vendor!

Consumers took the time and effort to really understand our business and the needs of our various departments. The process to order supplies became much easier and faster, and the process in accounting to approve the summary invoice was a huge time saving as well. Our business relationship with Consumers continues to grow as they have developed into an excellent vendor/partner for our company.
