JCB Lands Contract with NJPA | Construction News

The National Joint Power Alliance (NJPA) has awarded JCB North America a four-year contract to provide NJPA members with medium-duty and compact construction and maintenance equipment. The contractbegan May 19, 2015. It also covers related attachments, accessories, and supplies.

“We’re extremely pleased to have our proposal chosen by the NJPA,” said Scott Whitehurst, commercial sales manager for JCB North America. “Winning this NJPA contract will give JCB and its dealers the opportunity to build additional brand awareness and sales volume throughout North America. We’re looking forward to working with NJPA members and providing them fast and easy access to the quality, competitively priced equipment they need.”

The NJPA is a municipal contracting agency for government, education, and non-profit agencies 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 is able to help members save time and offer access to a broad range of exceptional product and equipment options with aggressive and competitive pricing. 

JCB’s contract with the NJPA includes equipment such as skid steers, compact track loaders, backhoes, compact excavators, rough-terrain forklifts, telescopic forklifts, and compaction rollers. 

JCB’s network of more than 300 North American dealer outlets, as well as more than 500 JCB employees provide customer service and after-sale support. The company will also offer training events for NJPA’s management and sales force at its 1,048-acre corporate campus in Savannah, Ga., along with marketing and trade show support.

JCB will also update the Government and Municipal section of its North American website, www.jcbna.com, with information about the JCB/NJPA partnership to assist NJPA members through the equipment purchase process.
