We provide acquisition, warehousing, and distribution support to agencies within King County as well as other municipalities and agencies in the Puget Sound region.

High purchase volumes get us lower prices, which benefit all of our customers (see more benefits below). Our clients are under no obligation to purchase from us, and may choose to buy only those items that offer the best savings.

Our 2015 supply catalog (see link at right) shows the products we carry and the total price for each item when the catalog was printed. This provides a general idea of where we might be able to assist you, but keep in mind that prices fluctuate.

  • Consistent product quality (industrial grade, brand names)
  • Many products unique to special applications and functions of government agencies
  • Inventory available on demand
  • Ongoing price comparisons to identify potential savings
  • Vendor buy-back clause in all contracts: surplus is purchased at market value
  • Assistance with hard-to-find items
  • Special orders placed upon request for non-stock items
  • Fabrication or in-house manufacturing available for some specialty items, including signs
  • Lower prices due to volume purchasing, competitive bidding, and ongoing price comparisons
