Tremco, WTI Awarded TCPN Contract
BEACHWOOD, Ohio (April 16, 2014) – Tremco Incorporated and its affiliate WTI (Weatherproofing Technologies, Inc.) are proud to announce that they have been awarded a contract as a national provider of roofing products and services to TCPN, The Cooperative Purchasing Network. The contract award follows an open, nationally competed bidding process and provides K-12, higher education, state/local government and architecture customers with expedited procurement, access to an exceptional range of roofing components, and services that can extend a roof’s useful service life.
“We’re delighted that TCPN has again selected Tremco and WTI to provide its members with our exceptional roofing products and services, which include our unique ability to function as a project’s general contractor – just one way that TCPN members can use this contract,” said Craig Nelson, WTI’s vice president of construction operations.
Jane Krivos, Tremco’s director of cooperative programs, continued: “We’re excited to be entrusted with this opportunity. TCPN’s members choose us together with an impressive array of local contractors to take care of their roofs for the long term. They receive peace of mind knowing that they will receive innovative, quality products, unmatched service to extend their roof’s life cycle, and support from experienced professionals who are fully qualified to meet roofing needs. Beyond these products and services, we are hard at work developing new programs that can provide TCPN members with evengreater benefits during the life of this national contract.”
TCPN members can also procure the following through the contract:
• Patch and repair services, in which minor roof defects such as tears and splits in the membrane are repaired before they can become large problems that result in potentially large capital expense.
• Rooftop safety equipment such as non-penetrating guard rail systems, hatch safety railing systems and skylight screens.
Fall protection is the top cause of OSHA violations, and permanent fall protection systems such as these are the best way to keep people safe when they are on a roof.
In summary, beyond receiving the highest quality roofing materials and services, TCPN members benefit from pre-competed solicitation; shorter overall project time; fewer change orders; lower costs; and an assurance that only proven, experienced contractors will work on their roofs.
