About Us

At Callico, creating and maintaining long-lasting customer friendships is a family tradition.

Our motto is, "We deliver what we say." It started with the values that Frank Callahan brought to the industry over 60 years ago. Frank felt that the redistribution business wasn't about creating relationships, but about building friendships. Those values are continued today under the leadership of his son, President Mark Callahan.

Incorporated in 1981, Callico Distributors is one of the only pure redistributors of paper, plastics, disposables, and janitorial supplies in New England. We're proud to be an independent, family-operated company with a staff of over 70 dedicated people and an inventory of over 4,000 of the finest products, including our own Callico brand. We're also members of RDA/Advantage, a national service company that gives us the means to distribute an exclusive line of value-added products.

Callico has changed a lot over the last half-century, but one thing certainly hasn't—our commitment to helping you grow your business. That's why we never, ever compete with our distributor family. And why our employees always go the extra mile to help you succeed. Frank had a vision to start a company of friends serving friends. We think he would be proud.
