Only the Best for Your Business

PolyJohn is there when you need us, whether you're just starting out or you've been in business for years. Our product categories offer everything your portable sanitation business needs to succeed. Our manufacturing facility controls quality from raw material to finished product, so we can put the best equipment in the market at your disposal.

The first U.S. patent for a polyethylene portable toilet was issued in the 1960s to George Harding, who co-founded PolyJohn with Ed Cooper and George Hiskes. We have been innovators in the industry since we began, and it continues today, with new products like the ADA compliant and kid-friendly SaniStand Foam, and the easy-to-service PJN3™ portable toilet. All portable toilets and accessories are not created equal!

With regional operations PJ Canada, PJ International, PJ Latin America, and PJ USA, PolyJohn can help you with your portable sanitation service operation anywhere in the world. For additional easily accessible assistance, we also feature:

  • JohnTalk: Our online success website can help you run your portable sanitation business more effectively.
  • PJ Regional and Global Business Managers: Personally providing you with a wealth of knowledge and experience.


Every day, we prove that the only thing that lasts longer than our products is our relationships. We are proud to still have many clients who have been with us since we started more than 35 years and two generation ago. We hope you take advantage of all our great resources, including our people. It will mean more profitability for your business!
