Wastequip awarded NJPA National Cooperative Purchasing Contract
Contract allows streamlined, lower cost purchasing options for recycling equipment to more than 50,000 member organizations across the U.S.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - After a rigorous review and evaluation process, Wastequip was recently awarded the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) four-year contract for the procurement of "Solid Waste and Recycling Collection and Transport Equipment with Related Equipment, Supplies and Accessories." The new contract will offer streamlined purchasing and volume pricing for NJPA member organizations and extend Wastequip's status as an awarded, preferred vendor by four years.
Representing more than 50,000 members across the country, NJPA is a unit of government in the state of Minnesota serving other government agencies, public and private education and non-profit member agencies across the United States. Because the solicitation process has already been done by NJPA on behalf of their members, NJPA member agencies can legally enter into cooperative purchasing agreements by leveraging competitively solicited and awarded contracts. This allows member agencies to procure products in a more efficient and timely manner while leveraging competitive national volume pricing.
Wastequip products available on the NJPA contract include Toter carts, containers, cart lifters and tilt trucks; Wastequip steel containers and compactors; Mountain Tarp and Pioneer tarping systems; Galbreath hoists, trailers and container handlers, and Go To Parts OEM and aftermarket parts.
The contract award runs from July 7, 2017 to July 7, 2021.
"Wastequip is excited to continue our partnership with NJPA," said Marty Bryant, CEO for Wastequip. "The contract is a win for member agencies, giving them the flexibility to purchase directly from Wastequip knowing that they are getting competitive pricing and the top products and brands in the waste industry. This flexibility, along with our North American manufacturing footprint, makes us uniquely suited to serve NJPA members' waste and recycling needs," added Bryant.
