The National Joint Power Alliance (NJPA), Staples, Minnesota, has awarded Morbark LLC, Winn, Michigan, with a four-year contract to provide NJPA members with grounds maintenance equipment. The contract, which officially began Aug. 18, also covers related attachments, accessories and services.

“We are extremely proud to hold this new contract and the partnership we have been able to cultivate with the NJPA since being awarded our first contract in 2015,” says Kevin Cotter, governmental sales manager. “This relationship allows us to supply NJPA member municipalities and nonprofit organizations with the quality Morbark equipment they need at very competitive prices.”

The NJPA is a municipal contracting agency for government, education and nonprofit organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada. The NJPA goes through a 12-step procurement process that includes identifying member needs, researching solutions, drafting and posting solicitations, evaluating proposals and awarding vendors. By consolidating the efforts of numerous individually prepared solicitations and contracts to one cooperative process, the NPJA’s goal is to help members save time and offer access to a broad range of exceptional product and equipment options with aggressive and competitive pricing.

Morbark’s contract with the NJPA includes the complete lines of Beever brush chippers, stump grinders, horizontal and tub grinders and whole tree chippers, as well as Boxer mini-skid steers, attachments and dedicated trenchers.

“After examining the proposals, the NJPA evaluation team received in response to our solicitation, it was evident that Morbark had all the qualities we were searching for,” says Scott Carr, NJPA contract manager for Morbark’s award. “Their excellent products, sizeable dealer network, comprehensive marketing plan and dedication will serve our members well. We’re excited to continue this mutually beneficial partnership with one of the world’s most widely respected equipment manufacturers.”
