Meet the Founders of Supply Sanitation Systems
Sally Seegers and Ron Gotlieb founded Supply Sanitation Systems in 1992 selling sundry items like gloves, hair nets and boots to foodservice and food processing plants. With 500 square feet of space and one employee (who is still with them today), the business expanded quickly. By 1994, they were producing food processing chemicals for RTE facilities, including their first account, a Fortune 500 RTE company, which is still a customer today.
Today, there are six facilities with distribution points across the U.S., including three laboratories staffed with expert chemists who develop innovative and custom-blended products for its customers.
Supply Sanitation Systems is a WBE certified, minority-owned business headquartered in Dallas, Texas.

Ron Gotlieb, Co-Founder, VP Sanitation Services
Prior to founding Supply Sanitation Systems, Ron worked with Puritan/Churchill, a chemical manufacturer specializing in multi-institutional chemicals, detergents and sanitizers. There, he started a new territory and took his area from zero to $1Million in sales in his first five years. In his first year alone, he acquired 50 new customers for the company. His passion for the business and for people led him to provide training for other team members and eventually to forming Supply Sanitation Systems with his partner, Sally Seegers.
