About HP Products
Ames Shuel purchased H.P. Chemical in 1964 with the vision to establish a janitorial company that would provide the best products available, the best services and support possible, at competitive prices. HP began with just two full-time and three part-time employees, making deliveries with only one van. The company’s home was located in downtown Indianapolis, 20 West Washington Street.

HP Products has succeeded because we have kept our promises: the best products, the best services, at competitive prices. Times have changed, but our commitment to customer service has not. Although our product and equipment offerings have greatly expanded, we continue to research new and innovative ideas that will increase our market share and assist our customers with their cost-reduction programs.
