The Problem: Water Pump Failure

One of their properties needed three large domestic water pump motors replaced due to age and failure. After getting multiple bids for these motors, just the material alone was not within budget constraints. 

The Solution: Global Industrial’s Contract Through OMNIA Partners 

The University Partners team was introduced to Global Industrial while working with their OMNIA Partners representative to obtain help with their maintenance of large domestic water systems. The representatives at Global Industrial were able to procure OEM replacement equipment and saved the University Partners team 55% on the cost of the motors. The motor installation was seamless and they are no longer having issues with their water pumps.

Since then, they have repeatedly returned to Global Industrial, through OMNIA Partners, for all their needs, including salt for snow & ice all the way to large cabinets & mechanical equipment. The University Partners team values this collaborative relationship because of the outstanding customer service and the pricing that is available.

The Value of Group Purchasing

Stephen Tinsley, the Director of Maintenance at University Partners was asked to describe his experience working with OMNIA Partners, a Group Purchasing Organization (GPO); this is what he said:  

“Sensible Solutions for Cost Efficiency and Savings” 

“Purchasing Power through Strong Networking”
