TMG, an affiliate of Linde North America, has entered into a long-term supply agreement with G&K Services, Inc. of Minneapolis.
According to the new deal, G&K will provide a variety of uniforms and facility service products to TMG’s network of more than 7,500 customers across North America.
Curtis Rodgers, TMG President outlined the benefits to customers. “Customers who enrol in the new program will benefit from TMG’s national buying power and experience a unique way to manage and monitor facility management programs, including one-stop shopping for high quality products,” said Rodgers.
TMG traditionally has managed programs for supplying compressed gases and related equipment to medical facilities, such as nursing homes and hospitals, industrial fabricators, HVAC contractors and retail outlets, including sporting goods stores. Now, TMG can offer these customers a range of work apparel, including corporate identity uniforms, safety, flame retardant and high visibility clothing, as well as facility service products.
But plans for the future didn’t end with the supply agreement. Indeed, Rodgers added, “TMG also plans to leverage our association with G&K to expand our reach beyond our current customer base to create markets for G&K products and services.”
G&K Services, Inc. identifies itself as providers of apparel programs and facility services. The company has nearly 7,500 employees serving approximately 165,000 customers from over 160 facilities in North America.
