NICEVILLE, Fla., Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jordan Reses Supply Company, LLC, has announced a finalized merger with First Nation Group, LLC. First Nation Group, doing business as Jordan Reses Supply Company, is a certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB/VOSB), HUB Zone, and Women-Owned Small Business. "These added socio-economic certifications ensure the Veterans Administration, our other government customers, and large Prime Contractors have continuous and assured access to Jordan Reses' full line of products while meeting their socio-economic procurement goals," said Cheryl Nilsson, Owner and CEO.
Jordan Reses Supply Company (JRS), a broad line distributor of Medical Surgical products and supplies, has been a market leader in the government space for over 30 years. With this merger, all government purchases made with JRS will result in credit towards five individual socio-economic procurement goals. Steve Baugh, President and COO, states "The merger process took well over one year to complete with a common theme that kept us steadfast-- the merged businesses would be better positioned and more successful, thus providing more opportunity to fulfill our shared philanthropic goals. First Nation's acquisition of Jordan Reses only strengthens our long-term commitment to veteran causes like Veterans Matter (www.veteransmatter.org), while also providing our current and new OEM partners with a best-in-class government distributor."
The completion of the merger on August 1, 2016 was particularly timely in light of the Supreme Court's unanimous June 2016 decision in Kingdomware Technologies. This decision, interpreting a provision of the Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006 (38 U.S.C. 8127(d) made it clear that the Veterans Administration must contract exclusively with SDVOSB/VOSBs, if there are two or more veteran businesses that can provide the goods or services.
First Nation Group/ Jordan Reses Supply Company, is a full-line national distributor of medical equipment and supplies with the capability to provide advanced and innovative products to meet customers ever evolving needs and capability to provide unmatched customer service and satisfaction.
