The National Joint Power Alliance (NJPA) has awarded JCB North America with a four-year contract to provide NJPA members with medium-duty and compact construction and maintenance equipment. The contract, which officially began May 19, 2015, also covers related attachments, accessories and supplies.
“We’re extremely pleased to have our proposal chosen by the NJPA,” said Scott Whitehurst, commercial sales manager of JCB North America. “Winning this NJPA contract will give JCB and its dealers the opportunity to build additional brand awareness and sales volume throughout North America. We’re looking forward to working with NJPA members and providing them fast and easy access to the quality, competitively priced equipment they need.”
The NJPA is a municipal contracting agency for government, education and non-profit agencies throughout the United States and Canada. The NJPA goes through a 12-step procurement process that includes identifying member needs, researching solutions, drafting and posting solicitations, evaluating proposals and awarding vendors. By consolidating the efforts of numerous individually prepared solicitations and contracts to one cooperative process, the NPJA is able to help members save time and offer access to a broad range of exceptional product and equipment options with aggressive and competitive pricing.
JCB’s contract with the NJPA includes equipment such as skid steers, compact track loaders, backhoes, compact excavators, rough terrain forklifts, telescopic forklifts and compaction rollers. JCB’s network of more than 300 North American dealer outlets, as well as over 500 JCB employees work diligently to provide exceptional customer service and after-the-sale support. The company also will offer appropriate training events for NJPA’s management and sales force from its 1,048 acre corporate campus in Savannah, Ga., along with marketing and trade show support. JCB also will update the Government and Municipal section of its North American Web site with information about the JCB/NJPA partnership to assist NJPA members through the equipment purchase process.
“After examining the proposals we received in response to our solicitation, it was evident that JCB had all the qualities we were searching for,” said Tony Glenz, NJPA contract manager of JCB’s award. “Their excellent products, sizeable dealer network, comprehensive marketing plan and dedication will serve our members well. We’re excited to enter into this mutually beneficial partnership with one of the world’s most widely respected equipment manufacturers.”
