RENSSELAER, IN — Talbert Manufacturing, a North American leader in specialized heavy-haul solutions, announces that it has been awarded a multiyear Sourcewell cooperative purchasing contract, #092922-TBT. The Sourcewell contract streamlines the procurement process for more than 70,000 government and education agencies as well as nonprofits in the United States. Talbert customers can use the Sourcewell contract to purchase a wide range of trailers from lowboy lowbed to hydraulic detachable, mechanical detachable, hydraulic tail, sliding axle, tag-a-long, double drop, tilt, detachable and more.
Customers benefit from Talbert’s Sourcewell contract because they save time normally spent on requests for proposal (RFPs) or invitations for bid (IFBs). This is because Sourcewell satisfies the bidding process by sourcing and qualifying vendors, then offering purchasing agents the ability to procure from ready-to-use, competitively solicited contracts, like Talbert, more efficiently at the best possible price. The Sourcewell-awarded contract followed a rigorous evaluation process to ensure that Talbert met or exceeded state and local procurement requirements where Sourcewell operates.
“We’re excited about the benefits that Talbert’s Sourcewell contract offers to our government and nonprofit customers, as well as our dealers who support them,” said Troy Geisler, vice president of sales and marketing at Talbert Manufacturing. “It’s an age-old adage, but time is money. By offering a simplified purchasing process and eliminating lengthy, complex RFPs and IFBs, customers receive the benefit of purchasing one of our trailers that fits the specific needs of their operation while saving time previously spent on a drawn-out bidding process.”
Talbert produces trailers for commercial, military, government, aerospace and energy end-users. Since 1938, the company has led the way in customizing trailers to haul building materials, pipes, construction equipment, vehicles and hazardous and nuclear materials. Talbert’s innovative approach to tailoring each trailer to the specific needs of the customer, their operation and what they are hauling continues to be the cornerstone of its business.
