Ashland City, Tenn.-based A. O. Smith has entered into a contract with the U. S. General Services Administration (GSA). The new contract will allow the water heater manufacturer to easily interact with federal, state and local government agencies in need of commercial water heaters and boilers.
Typically, GSA contracts are open-ended, five-year agreements listing negotiated pricing on specified products, according to the company. GSA schedules are the preferred purchasing method as they allow government buyers to save time by making purchases through a pre-approved list of suppliers. A. O. Smith was added to the GSA schedule after an extensive approval process.
A. O. Smith’s GSA listing includes more than 50 of its best-selling commercial units, including Cyclone and Master-Fit commercial gas and Gold Series commercial electric water heaters, as well as Genesis and VF gas boilers.
