KPN Awards New Athletic Contract for Schools and Government Entities

Share Article

Schools, government agencies, institutions of higher education and other nonprofit organizations can piggyback on contracts that have been solicited, advertised, evaluated and awarded by the Keystone Purchasing Network (KPN), a national cooperative purchasing program created by the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit, a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania regional educational service agency.

KPN offers members products that are competitively bid and awarded to the lowest responsive responsible bidder, resulting in higher quality at lower pricing. Members piggybacking on these contracts benefit by saving time and the expense of conducting the bidding process.

KPN’s latest awarded vendor is GT Grandstands, adding value to the line of KPN athletic contracts. GT Grandstands offers quality products with excellent installation services and custom designs to meet the needs of the customer. Schools and local government agencies contemplating an installation of an athletic field complex project may now purchase the grandstands, quality turf field, running track, field lighting and state-of-the-art football goal posts, without duplicating the bid process.

GT Grandstands is a designer/manufacturing business specializing in the construction of bleachers and grandstands. They have over 100 years of combined experience in the seating industry among the key personnel and are capable of meeting all of your seating needs. Over the past fifteen years, GT Grandstands has grown to an established company and in 2011 was acquired by Playcore, a multinational company, with sales over $450 million in 2013. GT Grandstands, Inc. takes pride in providing not only products of consistently high quality, but also in their flexibility and responsiveness to their customers. They are proud of their ability and willingness to meet individual customer needs with custom design solutions. Products range from a simple team bench to a grandstand that meets the VIP seating requirements of a NASCAR Sprint Cup race. You can view GT Grandstands at to learn more about their product line.

With more than 40 existing contracts available, KPN members can easily access information by visiting or calling (888) 490-3182. Membership is free with no obligation to purchase, and KPN will provide complete bid and contract documentation upon request to members interested in piggybacking its contracts.
