WRENTHAM, Mass., Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Norfolk Power Equipment Inc. is pleased to announce that they have been awarded a GSA Schedule 51V contract and are now certified to provide goods & services to the Federal government. Federal officials appreciate GSA Schedules as a means of procuring goods and services, knowing that companies on GSA Schedules have been qualified by the General Services Administration (GSA). Norfolk Power Equipment has placed their comprehensive Kubota Lawn & Garden product offering on GSA Advantage!®, the government's electronic ordering system www.gsaadvantage.gov .
"The Government is the largest property owner in the country; and of course, the larger the property the larger the grounds maintenance requirements are," stated Carolyn Coulter, President & CEO of Norfolk Power Equipment. She continues: "We've serviced the private sector for well over a quarter of a century and feel that working and servicing the public sector is the next logical step for our company's future."
The prospect of providing the government with consistent service and training for all of their lawn and garden care products motivated Norfolk Power to seek a GSA schedule award. With the vast amount of public "green" spaces and facilities that fall under the Park Service umbrella, Mrs. Coulter felt strongly about providing federal officials a true alternative when contracting with a private vendor. She adds: "We're focused on establishing a consortium of service focused dealers throughout the country to ensure successful dealer-prep, delivery, operation, training and maintenance of all of our products."
Norfolk Power Equipment sells, rents and services Kubota compact tractors, excavators, Wheel Loaders , Terex Track Loaders, backhoes , Ariens , Husqvarna, Stihl, Echo, Exmark, Wright Stander and numerous other lawn care products. They service both consumers and commercial contractors with quality equipment, tools and accessories to make any lawn care maintenance job easier and more efficient. Factory trained mechanics are updated annually to stay current with the changing technology. On the road service technicians are also available for those more immediate service problems. Norfolk Power Equipment's parts department can ship parts anywhere in the US or abroad with an online interface to facilitate finding the parts efficiently.
