Formaspace Contract Furniture Now Available Through the TIPS Purchasing Cooperative
At a time when schools, government agencies, and organizations are urgently looking for new furniture solutions to meet the latest Covid-19 public health recommendations, a new Awarded Vendor agreement makes it simpler for the 11,000 plus members of the TIPS (The Interlocal Purchasing System) Purchasing Cooperative to specify safety-conscious furniture products and accessories from Formaspace Contract — using competitively procured purchasing contracts available exclusively to TIPS members — thus avoiding the additional expense and delay inherent in the traditional bidding process.
“We are excited to be named as an Awarded Vendor (#2003001) within the TIPS Purchasing Cooperative,” says Formaspace Contract CEO Jeff Turk. “TIPS helps school districts, local government agencies, healthcare and educational institutions, and other religious and non-profit service organizations save time and money on the bidding process.”
TIPS members can start the procurement process by visiting these special TIPS website pages to learn more about Formaspace Contract’s American-made furniture products and accessories that help organizations meet the new CDC and OSHA worker safety and social distancing requirements.
Formaspace Contract’s transparent dividers and protective health shields help keep workers safe on the job, such as when interfacing with the public. Each product is built-to-order, so designs can be customized during the ordering/manufacturing process to meet TIPS members’ exact requirements, and because Formaspace Contract manufactures all of its products at its Austin, Texas factory headquarters, there are no lengthy waiting times for overseas shipments.
Establishing proper social distancing in the workplace is made easier with flexible mobile furniture solutions from Formaspace Office, such as mobile carts, tables, and desks, which can be rolled into place and then locked in position. As with all Formaspace Contract furniture, customers can specify a wide range of options, including chemical resistant work surfaces that can withstand repeated applications of disinfectant to remove Covid-19 virus particles. All Formaspace Contract products are backed by a 12-year, no-questions-asked guarantee.
Formaspace Contract’s modular furniture solutions, designed for storage, laboratories, and industrial use, offer great flexibility and practicality, especially during these difficult times, when facility managers are reconfiguring floor plans to accommodate social distancing. Modular units from Formaspace Contract can be assembled using ordinary hand tools, allowing facility managers to quickly reconfigure laboratory layouts, storage rooms, classrooms, office areas, and more to establish proper social distancing.
“Given the significant changes to school and office layouts now recommended by the CDC, time is of the essence,” says Formaspace EVP of Sales and Marketing Frank Bucher. “Our new partnership with TIPS will help streamline the bidding/requisition process and speed up the delivery of Formaspace Contract furniture products into the hands of those who need them most — government agency workers, students and faculty at schools, healthcare providers, non-profit and religious groups — and the general public who depend on visiting these institutions and organizations.”
