History

In the 1960s a group of building engineers considered a business plan to import dress suits from Hong Kong and felt the name "Seaway Trading Company" was an appropriate name for the company.
However, not one single suit was ever imported. Instead, one of the partners decided he would start his own supply company to provide products to the building engineers. He bought out the partners to save the incorporation expenses and changed the name to Seaway Engineering Supply or S.E.S.
In 1995 the current owner, Tom Engoren, purchased the company and soon after changed the name to Seaway Supply Co.

Seaway started with a small supply storefront on W. North Avenue in Oak Park, IL and has moved several times over the years to accommodate the need for more space. Today, we have a 30,000 square foot warehouse that is centrally located to major expressways and services a 35 mile radius of downtown Chicago.

"About 20 years ago when I started working at Seaway Supply and started learning all the details about the JanSan industry. Today, I fill a number of roles for the company, but particularly enjoy the opportunity to meet with customers, show them new products, and train their workers.

I am bilingual, so I am able to provide assistance and training for customers in both English and Spanish, which has helped me build even more relationships over the years.

What some customers may not realize about Seaway is that Tom creates an environment that makes it feel like a family. We care about our customers in the same way we do about our co-workers. We all support each other and work towards the common goal of finding the best janitorial solutions at the best price.

Feel free to call Seaway at any time to discuss your cleaning and maintenance requirements. It’s always great to hear from facility managers, BSCs and in-house staff who are working with maintenance challenges that we help solve."
