L.N. Curtis & sons Awarded Major Contracts!




America’s first responders need the ability to purchase WHAT they need, WHEN they need it, and for AFFORDABLE prices. However, the usual method of conducting publicly-announced, competitive procurements often serves only to add significant time and unnecessary costs to the procurement process. L.N. Curtis & sons has recently received two major contract awards that serve to minimize the time and expense of public procurements while meeting the critical requirement for open and fair competition.

Defense Logistics Agency (DLA)
L.N. Curtis & sons has just received a prime DoD contract in support of the DLA’s next generation Fire & Emergency Services & Equipment Tailored Vendor Logistic Support (FESE TLSP) Program. Our responsibilities and scope under this new contract have been greatly expanded. Our sales team is very excited now that they are able to offer our customers superior products AND services through this new contract, WORLD-WIDE!

FireRescue-GPO and the National Purchasing Partnership (NPP)
FireRescue-GPO is group purchasing organization providing public agencies with access to aggressively priced contracts with vendors who supply goods and services to the fire service. These contracts are often established through a competitively bid public RFP process that allows members to “piggy-back” on the contract — eliminating the need for member departments to complete an RFP process. L.N. Curtis & sons was recently awarded a contract through FireRescue-GPO. The products included in this contract are a broad array of products, including in most cases, complete catalogs of our partner suppliers. Our sales team is looking forward to offering customers the ability to “piggy-back” on this new nationwide contract to purchase our products AND services without the need to conduct an expensive and time-consuming competitive procurement!
