'The increased tropical activity in the Northeast Region is making companies acutely aware of the necessity for both disaster preparedness and rapid post-disaster response,' said WPP Executive VP Mark Lum.
(PRWEB) July 22, 2013
Worldwide Power Products (WPP), a power-generation equipment provider to commercial and industrial clients worldwide, today announced it has solidified a partnership with disaster recovery firm Northstar Recovery Services. After Hurricane Sandy, Northstar was a pivotal player in bringing relief to businesses in the stricken region, including providing emergency power generators from WPP’s inventory. WPP and Northstar are entering into a Master Subcontractor Agreement (MSA) that will streamline the process for Northstar to procure power-generation equipment from WPP in the wake of disasters or for any other business need.
"The increased tropical activity in the Northeast Region is making companies acutely aware of the necessity for both disaster preparedness and rapid post-disaster response," said WPP Executive VP Mark Lum. "As a Gulf Coast-based operation, we have always operated with a business model that is optimized for—and committed to—rapid delivery of emergency power supplies both before and after major weather events. Our partnership with Northstar is a natural extension of this commitment and will make it easier for us to provide assistance to businesses outside our core service region."
Under the terms of the MSA, WPP will become a registered vendor with Northstar. This will enable WPP to process orders and ship equipment to Northstar immediately, without any restrictions.
"Northstar’s desire to partner with us is a testament to WPP’s track record of excellent and prompt service, including delivery of emergency power supplies in as little as four hours, depending on location and availability," says Lum. "Our commitment to providing quality power-generation equipment quickly isn’t just a business approach—it’s a professional responsibility that we look forward to meeting every day."
