On January 15, 1952 Globe Chemicals was founded by Mr. Sidney Sisselman and his wife, Lena. Mr. Sisselman would purchase and resale cleaning products to business’ in the Atlanta area. Mrs. Sisselman was the company bookkeeper.
What caused the company to grow and expand to its present size was Mr. Sisselmans perception of the market place. Mr. Sisselman observed the constant turnover in maintenance personnel mostly due to lack of education using maintenance products. To maintain customer loyalty and help his customers stabilize their workforce, Mr. Sissselman would personally educate and train his customer’s maintenance personnel to safely and properly use Globe products.
Today Mr. Sisselman’s philosophy is fully embraced by Globe’s sales force. Globe Chemicals sales consultants are highly trained and educated. Their responsibility is not only to sell and provide customer service, but to continue in Mr Sisselman’s tradition. Each sales consultant educates and trains his customers maintenance personnel to safely and properly use Globes products. Since 1952 Globe Chemicals has expanded into 22 states offering over 5,000 products to its customers. Globe Chemicals manufactures many of its own products. The company is moving with the future with many of products being Green Sealed Approved.
Because of the company’s management concerned for every customer individual’s need, Globe Chemical’s R & D Department tries to meet and solve any problem a customer encounters. This is done regardless to the size of the customer.
Globe Chemicals is still a family owned business with its corporate offices located in Alvondale Estates, Georgia within a few miles of Stone Mountain.
