About Us

Otago Cleaning Supplies is a proud locally owned and operated partnership which has now been operating successfully since 1995. The company was formed with the merging of Chemicals Distribution Co. (owned by P.R. de Clifford) and Phillips Products (owned by B&A Maitland). In November 1999 P.R. & G.M. de Clifford acquired the Maitlands interest and are now the sole owners.

Otago Cleaning Supplies is currently situated at 371 King Edward Street, Dunedin. Here we have a large bright showroom and welcome you to come in and have a good look around, where one of our 5 staff members will assist you. There is also customer parking available for your convenience.

Otago Cleaning Supplies sells a wide and comprehensive product range to supply a variety of markets. These products include your standard cleaning chemicals and accessories, industrial chemicals, guest supplies, machinery & equipment, matting, hand cleaners, brush ware, paper products, and the list goes on.

RapidClean New Zealand

RapidClean New Zealand is a buying cooperative that started in Australia in 1987 and now has 57 members in Australia and 14 in New Zealand, having only ventured into the New Zealand market in 2017 this is a great achievement.

By becoming part of this group it enables us to obtain preferential buying terms and conditions with major suppliers throughout both countries, which in turn leads to better prices and offerings to our customers. 

With the strength of the other distributors throughout New Zealand and Australia we can now offer National and International companies the benefit of local supply and service but at National pricing, and we all know locally owned and operated distributors offer a far superior level of service than what a nationally owned and operated store can.
