Grainger and FireRescue GPO Now Offer Greater Savings to Fire Departments
Grainger Industrial Supply, a leading distributor of safety and industrial gear and supplies, has teamed with FireRescue GPO to make more items and savings available to the fire service. They have created a specialized market basket built specifically for the fire and rescue industry, which will give fire departments access to over 3,000 items that are competitively priced.
You can access the complete list of products through FireRescue GPO, a group purchasing program that negotiates discount pricing on behalf of the fire service. FRGPO complies with local and federal procurement laws, and this Grainger contract has been publicly-awarded via a thorough RFP process.
This partnership with Grainger enables your department to receive discounted rates on a vast array of products, including safety gear, hazmat, medical supplies, tools, lighting, janitorial and filters. Grainger stocks items from top manufacturers and brands such as FireDex, Pelican, Bullard and Streamlight. Freight is prepaid FOB, and next day delivery is guaranteed in many markets.
Besides the 3,000 products offered in this new market basket, FRGPO members are guaranteed at least a 10% discount on all other items Grainger offers.
