ST. LOUIS – Graybar, a leading distributor of electrical, communications and data networking products and provider of related supply chain management and logistics services, today announced that it has been awarded a three-year contract to distribute telecommunications and security supplies and accessories to the participants of U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance. Los Angeles County served as the lead agency and awarded Graybar the contract after carefully evaluating proposals from several other distributors.
This award represents Graybar’s fourth term as the telecommunications and security supplies and accessories provider through the U.S. Communities cooperative purchasing program. Under the new contract, Graybar will continue to offer manufacturer discounts, strategic sourcing, eBusiness solutions, and volume incentives to the more than 90,000 state, local government, K-12, higher education, special districts and non-profit agencies eligible to use the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance. By negotiating additional savings from its suppliers, Graybar expects to provide additional savings for U.S. Communities participants, while increasing the depth and breadth of products available through the program. Graybar also holds the electrical supplies and services contract for U.S. Communities.
“We are proud to continue our relationship with Los Angeles County and U.S. Communities,” said Bill Mansfield, Graybar Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “In addition to providing overall savings to the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance, Graybar also offers many value-added services during and after the product sale. We look forward to working to the advantage of U.S. Communities participants over the course of this contract.”
