FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
San Diego, CA - WAXIE Sanitary Supply announces receipt of a price agreement (#3402) from the State of Oregon for Janitorial Supplies and Industrial Paper Products (including custodial equipment and incidental services). In presenting the award, the State of Oregon credited WAXIE’s excellent service record, extensive catalog of environmentally preferable products and low price 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 GPS® Green Partner Support™ Program, a comprehensive approach to green cleaning that includes low environmental impact cleaning products, tools, equipment, consultation and training. WAXIE’s approach meets the requirements of Executive Order 12-05, Environmentally-Friendly Purchasing and Product Design, signed April 27, 2012 by Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber.
“Everyone at WAXIE is excited about the opportunity to provide the State of Oregon and other states, their political subdivisions and local governments with more environmentally preferable products along with the best value proposition,” said Charles Wax, Chairman and CEO of WAXIE Sanitary Supply. “Our partnership with the State of Oregon is further proof and validation that we are committed to providing green cleaning supplies and support to leading agencies and organizations throughout the United States. In an effort to support environmentally preferable purchasing decisions, WAXIE is offering an extensive catalog of third-party certified green and other contract-compliant products.”
WAXIE joins a select group of suppliers who have met the State of Oregon’s price agreement specifications. This award allows state agencies to take advantage of pre-negotiated terms and conditions to achieve cost-effective and efficient acquisition of quality green 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.
