About Holt Paper Co.
History of Holt
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.
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.
Today the focus of Holt Paper Co. is to continue providing exceptional products with an emphasis on top notch service. With a geographical reach as far north as Philadelphia, PA and as far south as North Carolina, and everything in between, we aim to be a reliable and flexible resource to our customers.
