At the end of 2017, the entire team of the French sales department of POK® carried out a titanic work in order to present the best possible offer to the UGAP call for tenders concerning 4 lots of fire equipment.
UGAP is a public industrial and commercial establishment created in 1985 and placed under the dual supervision of the finance minister, on the one hand, and the education minister, on the other. To date, it is the only French “generalist” public purchasing centre. UGAP is a means of implementing public policies, particularly in terms of spending rationalisation, sustainable development and support for SMEs and local employment.
With the creation, in 2009, of the State Purchasing Service (SAE), which has a significant prescribing power and whose mission is to contribute to the professionalization of the ministries’ purchasing sector and to generate savings, the role of the UGAP as a purchasing operator with the government has been strengthened. In addition, the UGAP supports the policy of transferring skills to the departments and harmonises the purchase of fire and emergency equipment.
POK, suppliers of fire-fighting equipment for the defense and fire brigade, presented to the UGAP its application for 4 lots. These lots are composed of:
- Quarter-turn valve equipment,
- Valves and fittings with handwheel,
- Variable flow hand nozzles,
- Automatic monitors.
The results of this offer gave POK a place of choice, having equal only the quality and innovation of its equipment, since we triumphed over the 4 lots for a duration of 4 years. This is the result of a commercial follow-up and a quality of answer placing POK as the undeniable French number one.
