Beachwood, OH (PRWEB) July 20, 2011
Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance together with WTI (Weatherproofing Technologies, Inc.), a subsidiary of Tremco Incorporated, announced today that they have been awarded a contract for Roofing and Related Services through Educational and Institutional (E&I) Cooperative Purchasing. This contract provides Tremco Roofing and WTI with a distinct product offering in the higher education marketplace.
Based in Jericho, New York, E&I is a member-owned, not for profit buying cooperative established by members of the National Association of Educational Procurement (NAEP) in 1934 to provide lower costs for higher education. Current annual E&I Cooperative purchases exceed $1.5 billion, and membership is comprised of over 2,000 institutions.
Brian Burden, Tremco Roofing’s Market Development Manager for U.S. Education says, “The E&I contract provides Tremco Roofing and WTI with an opportunity to further expand our relationship-based sales approach into a key growth market. More importantly, it enables prospective higher education clients to work with best-in-class facilities and procurement professionals, as well as highly skilled construction contractors. When colleges and universities elect to partner with E&I and their awarded vendors, they know that proper due diligence has been done. Quality is expected and realized in both the procurement process and in the construction deliverable.”
The Roofing and Related Services contract will allow E&I members to access pre-competed, line-item contracts to address roofing and building envelope needs. The contract is based upon a nationally solicited request for proposal (RFP) and multiple bid responses. Ultimately, Tremco Roofing and WTI were chosen as the sole national provider for this five-year agreement.
