About Us

Holt Paper & Chemical was founded in 1960, by John T. Holt Jr., primarily as a paper and janitorial supply company.  Holt Paper & Chemical built a strong reputation for providing quality paper and janitorial supplies and in order to continue providing exceptional service and value to their loyal customers, a food division was created in 1998. The ever expanding lineup of products includes items such as; fresh produce, local poultry, fresh cut meats, seafood, smallwares, restaurant equipment, and food service disposables.  

Holt Paper & Chemical is a member of multiple buying groups that help lower cost of goods and gives the ability to have a national footprint by partnering with other independent distributors.  Holt is a member of Triple S for the Janitorial and Sanitation industry and UniPro Foodservice, Inc. for the food service industry.

The professional and dedicated staff is committed to building relationships with our customers and realizes the importance of understanding their present and future needs in order for them to succeed.

In 1989, John T. Holt III, opened the Baltimore office located in southwestern Baltimore. In 1995, he took over majority ownership continuing his father’s legacy as a broad line distributor that provides quality, value, and service.

Holt Paper & Chemical is the “Leader in quality and service”.
