Johnston Food Service and Cleaning Solutions was added to e-SHOP September 1 as a new preferred supplier for janitorial supplies and equipment, paper towels, and bath tissue. Johnston serves Facilities Services’ Building Care department.
For all other campus departments, W.B. Mason was awarded a portion of the custodial agreement and expanded its e-SHOP product offerings to include janitorial supplies.
This change in suppliers resulted in part from an extensive review the marketplace, bid specifications, supplier presentations, and supplier selection by representatives from Building Care and the Statler Hotel, who have significant experience and purchase volume in this arena. We believe that these two suppliers will meet campus needs by providing excellent value, quality, selection, and service for janitorial supplies and equipment and paper products.
Both Johnston and W.B. Mason provide daily delivery (Monday - Friday) to the Ithaca campus as well as dedicated account representatives to serve Cornell. Johnston is a family-owned business based in Auburn with a focus on customized solutions to meet customer needs. W.B. Mason, which is also Cornell’s office supplies provider, prides itself on responsiveness and providing next-day desktop delivery.
Hill & Markes, the university’s supplier for paper and compostable products, such as food service disposable items like cups, plates, utensils and trays, is now providing a punch-out catalog site in e-SHOP. The new punch-out site gives you full access to all available products, as well as enhanced product information. Hill and Markes, which has served the Ithaca campus since 2010 from its Amsterdam, NY headquarters, offers a range of sustainable products and solutions and provides hands-on product training. The company will continue to offer a hosted catalog, as well.
America to Go, which began identifying diverse suppliers last March, further enhanced its e-SHOP site by adding a customer dashboard so that you can easily compare your diverse supplier purchases through America To Go with the university’s. We encourage you to consider using a diverse supplier for your next catered event.
