NISSCO awards 2014 Sustainability honours to Americo Manufacturing
Americo Manufacturing was presented with the 2014 Sustainability Award by the NISSCO (National Independent Sanitary Supply Companies) Buying Group at the ISSA Show in Orlando, FL, this week.
NISSCO President, Mark Bozich, made the presentation to Americo Senior Executives with many NISSCO Distributors on hand for the event.
“Americo embodies what we look for in NISSCO Preferred Suppliers; an undying commitment to the independent distributor,” said Mark Bozich. “Its partnership with NISSCO predates the employment of all but one NISSCO employee, and that is a fact that says a lot about Americo as a company. It never waivers from the model we hold sacrosanct: Supplier to Distributor to End User.
“It is tough to differentiate floor pads, especially in this day of racing to lower cost by cutting corners, using lesser and lower quality materials. Americo has taken a better path by reversing the trend and enhancing the traditional; thereby giving the distributor a tool to differentiate.
“50 million floor pads enter landfills every year and by offering 100% recycled PET fibre, plus water based latex binder instead of phenolic resins, Americo offers a pad formulated for enhanced biodegradation.
“Let the others sell the cheap pads, Americo offers distributors a tool that will make their businesses stand out and in the process do their part to make this a better planet.”
NISSCO is an association of more than 200 distributors of janitorial and maintenance supplies throughout North America and Canade. It represents more than $2 billion in group purchases and negotiates advantaged contracts, pricing and revenue streams for its members with over 100 manufacturer programmes.
