(LUVERNE, MN) 3/21/22 – Midwest Fire Equipment & Repair Company (Midwest Fire) announced today that it has been awarded a contract as an approved supplier for Sourcewell, a cooperative purchasing organization located in Staples, MN. The Sourcewell contract applies to most of the apparatus Midwest Fire offers.
“Obtaining this Sourcewell contract is not just an important distinction for Midwest Fire,” said Midwest Fire Owner and CEO Sarah Atchison. “It is all about making things easier for our customers. Many agencies, municipalities and cities have specific needs and requirements to purchase equipment using grants. These grants require specific pricing and multiple bids. Sourcewell helps simplify the process for them by offering a variety of contract-awarded vendors from whom to attain and review bids. Customers will still receive the personal care when they choose to move forward with us, but we want to continue to add value for our customers by making things even easier for them.”
The burdensome bid process required by most agencies for purchasing new apparatus still exists, however Sourcewell has fulfilled it already with their RFP process. Their services are available to government agencies throughout the United States.
