About Us

Our origin dates back to 1974 when Mr. Howell Bowden founded BOWDEN SANITARY SUPPLY. This small business sold janitorial supplies and cleaning chemicals to schools, churches and institutions in the metropolitan Atlanta area. David Sikes purchased the company in 1989 with the goal of building Georgia’s finest distribution business. The focus was expanded to include institutional paper, packaging, safety and cleaning equipment. Throughout the ensuing years SIKES began to represent some of the premiere manufacturers in the industry. Georgia-Pacific, Spartan Chemical, Rubbermaid, Gojo, SCA, Karcher and Inteplast are just a few of the scores of world-class manufacturers  we now represent.

The company has relocated five times over the past 26 years to accommodate our growth. In 2013 SIKES purchased our newest home; an 81,000 square foot state of the art office/distribution facility in Austell, Georgia. Our new location, 8 miles west of downtown Atlanta just off I-20, gives us the ability to reach our customers in a timely and efficient manner.  In addition to this facility SIKES also operates sales offices in Dalton and Columbus, Georgia.

SIKES PAPER COMPANY is proud of our team of twelve sales professionals. All are ISSA Certified Experts; I.C.E. [see ISSA.COM]. This designation certifies that our sales professionals are skilled and knowledgeable in providing training and consultative services for all of our customers in the area of cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing.  Our salespeople are often considered a part of the staff at many of our customer locations.  Schools, office buildings, nursing facilities and hospitals count on us to keep them apprised of the latest improvements in everything related to healthy and sustainable buildings.
