Office Partners Signs Agreement with Leading Jan/san Group

Thursday, May 4, 2017

US dealer group Office Partners has signed a marketing agreement with a major buying group specialising in the jan/san, food service and other facilities supplies categories.


Office Partners CEO Jim Hebert confirmed to OPI that a contract had been signed with The United Group (TUG) just ahead of TUG’s annual conference that is currently taking place in Nashville, Tennessee.


TUG is a member-owned purchasing organisation with more than 500 independent jan/san, food service, safety products and industrial packaging supplies dealers across the US.


Now, Office Partners’ dealers will have access to the direct-pricing arrangements of more than 200 TUG preferred jan/san vendors, a development that Hebert called “a real change” from the current situation and something that will help Office Partners dealers be more competitive in the product category.


Hebert added that there was a good cultural fit between the two groups, with both organisations keeping a fairly low profile and operating “lean and mean” business models.


The arrangement could be expanded to other categories beyond jan/san – food service, for example – while some of TUG’s members have expressed interest in working with Office Partners on the office products side, so it could develop into a two-way partnership.


Now the agreement has been signed, both groups will be working hard in order to try and get things up and running by July, Hebert confirmed.
