About Us


Betco® was founded in 1950 by Carl and Ann Betz of Toledo, Ohio. With experience in the distribution industry, the Betzes realized they could provide customers with faster service and higher quality products than distribution suppliers could at the time. With this goal in mind, Carl and Ann established Betco Corporation and entered the cleaning and sanitation industry with two products.

In it’s early years, Betco generated a great deal of interest and successfully acquired 45 distributor partners at their first appearance at the ISSA show in 1954. Betco has grown exponentially and now offers hundreds of chemical and equipment solutions, comprehensive market programs and industry-leading training resources for end users and sales professionals.
