Evanston, IL – July 1, 2020 – For its nationally competed contract for Uniforms and Related Services, it was announced today that Blauer Manufacturing will receive a formal notice of award from leading national service cooperative, Sourcewell.
Created by the Minnesota legislature, Sourcewell was designed to establish and administer contract purchasing solutions for state and local governments. The organization notified Blauer of its intent to award in early May after a review of Blauer’s proposal to provide access to its uniforms and related services to Sourcewell’s 50,000 participating government and public safety entities.
On May 31st, a formal agreement was reached between Sourcewell and Blauer and so, Blauer’s entire catalog and related customization services are now available to Sourcewell members at pre-negotiated contract prices.
“The Sourcewell cooperative purchasing platform represents a value-added component to Blauer’s service capabilities to both its distributors and the public safety and government entities that we service across the United States and Canada,” Blauer’s Vice President of Marketing & Business Development, Tom Ames said.
“Blauer prides itself on the quality of our innovative uniform and accessory products as well as the level of service we provide through our national network of stocking distributors. This Sourcewell contract vehicle significantly strengthens our ability to ensure the public safety and government customers we serve to receive the service they deserve at competitive prices.”
