About Freedom Supply

The Freedom Supply Story

Freedom Supply was borne from the desire to combine extreme customer services with decades of facility management experience to deliver a superior facility maintenance distribution resource in the greater Cleveland area.

Its experienced management of Wes Coolbaugh and Gene Foster brings a combined 50-plus years of knowledge in a wide spectrum of industries — from operating rooms to printing presses. 

Freedom Supply works to find the best solution to your maintenance needs … not just trying to sell you the “product of the day.”  Many of its customers have been with the management team for decades — following them after the dissolution of a previous distributing company. Trust is a valuable asset in this industry, and both Wes and Gene have earned tremendous trust over the years.

At Freedom Supply, you will find products far beyond your typical janitorial and maintenance supply distributor.  In addition to being a full service and authorized distributor of quality JanSan supplies and equipment, it also stocks the full spectrum of restaurant equipment and supplies, party/paper supplies and industrial supplies and lubricants.

Meet Freedom Supply

Wes Coolbaugh, Co-owner

“I’ve been in the JanSan distribution business since 1986, so I’ve seen a lot of changes in our industry.  I also have a lot of experience on all levels of distribution management. 

I started in this industry in the warehouse of a local Cleveland family-owned JanSan distribution company.  From there, I worked my way up to driver, warehouse manager, sales, sales manager, and then general manager.  In fact, I still have my commercial driver’s license.

We are here to help you tackle your facility maintenance needs .. whether it is the proper placement of entrance mats to decrease your floor maintenance or installing the right microwave oven for your restaurant.  Freedom Supply will give you freedom from maintenance confusion and frustration. 

Feel free to call us at any time … we will give you the honest answers to your facility needs at highly competitive prices.

Little Known Fact:  Wes is a member of “That 80s Band” that plays classic rock music in the Cleveland area, and is one-half of the musical duo “Wes and Joey.”

Gene Foster, Co-owner

“I met Wes when he was the sales manager at a local Cleveland distribution company.  I had been in sales with 3M for almost 20 years, gaining experience in a variety of industries as I worked in a total of four different divisions. 

Through that experience, I learned about all kinds of industries, including electrical contracting, nuclear plants, healthcare, medical facilities, printing, and utility companies to name a few.  Understanding these different industries benefitted me greatly in evaluating and solving many different maintenance challenges.

When Wes and I agreed we could combine our talents and open our own janitorial supply distribution company, we were excited about the prospects of building a business based on our commitment to customer service and honest solutions. We’ve plugged into technology, have carefully chosen our lines, and are free to offer our customers the best solutions to their maintenance needs.

Call us and see the difference doing business with Freedom Supply will make in your everyday business life.”
