CHAMPS Group Purchasing and Spartan Chemical Launch Custom Contract for Warewashing Products



CHAMPS Group Purchasing and Spartan Chemical Launch Custom Contract for Warewashing ProductsCHAMPS Group Purchasing announces a new three-year custom contract with Spartan Chemical for warewash products. The custom contract with Spartan Chemical is available to CHAMPS’ 5,000-plus members nationwide.

“CHAMPS is excited to partner with Spartan for their line of warewashing chemical,” said Jan Elder, director contracting services. “Spartan is known throughout the CHAMPS membership as a producer of high-quality cleaning products. This contract is available to all members and products can be purchased from Spartan’s select network of distributors nationwide. Our contract provides GPO pricing based upon annual sales and, for additional savings, a growth rebate is offered. CHAMPS is proud to add this Ohio-based vendor to our portfolio of custom GPO contracts.”

The contract includes SparClean® Warewash products, a line that does not contain phosphates, nonylphenol ethoxylates, or EDTA, meaning the products are more environmentally preferable than most traditional warewash products.

“Spartan is excited about the new agreement with CHAMPS Group Purchasing,” said David Reed, vice president of national accounts for Spartan Chemical. “CHAMPS members and affiliates now have access to a locally delivered, locally serviced, broad range of nationally branded kitchen and food service sanitation chemicals. This agreement strategically complements our Premier housekeeping and laundry offering to create the full chemical bundle. At Spartan, our mission is to deliver a quality product that does exactly what is needed, the first time and every time. That’s how ‘We Make Clean Simple.’ On behalf of our nationwide team of authorized distributors, we look forward to the opportunities ahead and to creating a lasting, strategic partnership.”
