HILLSBORO, Ohio, June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lerch's Barnlot LTD announced plans today to apply for a GSA Schedule and actively pursue federal contracts. Federal officials appreciate GSA Schedules as a means of procuring goods and services, knowing that companies on these schedules have been qualified by the General Services Administration (GSA). Lerch's Barnlot plans on expanding their agricultural supply business to service federal agencies, primarily, the Department of Agriculture and their animal husbandry divisions.
"For a community based agricultural business, the opportunity to service government accounts opens up significantly more markets throughout the region," states Mark Lerch, President at Lerch's Barnlot LTD. He continues, "Getting our company on a GSA schedule will expand our reach beyond the federal government to local state and municipal governments as they will be able to take advantage of our farm supplies and building materials at set government pricing."
