Oregon Selects Waxie as Vendor
WAXIE Sanitary Supply, a family owned distributor of sanitary supplies, announces receipt of a contract award from the State of Oregon for Janitorial Supplies and Related Services.
Acting as the Lead Agency for the Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA), the State of Oregon has chosen WAXIE Sanitary Supply as a vendor for Janitorial Supplies and Industrial Paper, crediting the company’s web@work online ordering and account management tool and it’s extensive catalog of environmentally preferable products as the main reasons for making this selection.
Cleaning supplies that have a reduced impact on human health and the environment are the cornerstone of WAXIE’s Green Partner Support™ Program, which is a comprehensive approach to green cleaning which includes low environmental impact cleaning products, tools, equipment, consultation and training.
“Everyone at WAXIE is excited about the opportunity to provide the State of Oregon and other WSCA members with environmentally preferable products along with the best value proposition,” said Charles Wax, President of WAXIE Sanitary Supply. “Our partnership with the State of Oregon and WSCA is further proof and validation that we are committed to providing green cleaning supplies and support to leading agencies and organizations. In an effort to support environmentally preferable purchasing decisions, WAXIE is offering discounted terms to agencies who buy green cleaning products from the online catalog.”
WAXIE joins a select group of suppliers who have met the State of Oregon’s and WSCA’s business specifications. This contract award allows State Agencies to take advantage of pre-negotiated terms and conditions to achieve cost-effective and efficient acquisition of quality products and services.
“The State of Oregon looks forward to working with WAXIE to support the cleaning supply needs of our state buildings,” said Pam Johnson, the State Procurement Analyst for the Department of Administrative Services, State Procurement Office.
