The federal General Services Administration (GSA) has designated Dwyer Products' line of medical casework and refreshment stations as official products for the GSA's contract under its furniture schedule. The medical line includes cabinetry and furniture for specific areas in acute care facilities, such as nurse stations, pharmacies, operating rooms, offices and break areas. The refreshment stations are similar to small coffee bars and are not directly related to healthcare. Wood Dale, Ill.-based Dwyer also will offer installation services under the GSA contract.

As an approved vendor, Dwyer contributes to GSA's mission of providing federal purchasers with durable products that advance the mission of federal agencies. Local government agencies, likewise, can purchase items off certain GSA contracts.

Dwyer's medical modular casework is designed for constant use and flexibility, resulting in a long life cycle that keeps worn-out products out of landfills. The company's casework is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality-certified, contributing to healthy indoor environments. Government purchasers and users often find savings with Dwyer as its components are reconfigurable and may be integrated into new designs.

"Receiving recognition from GSA demonstrates our commitment to not only manufacturing safe, durable products, but our commitment to those making purchasing decisions for acute care facilities," said Clay Jacobs, president of Dwyer Products.

Dwyer offers its customers one point of contact, a 10- to 15-year warranty and sturdy modular casework. The company's products and finishes are equipped for specialized areas, such as clinical labs, assisted living facilities, military housing and public housing.

Dwyer's GSA contract number is GS-27F-0006X, and is listed under Schedule 71, Furniture. The Special Identification Numbers (SIN) that Dwyer's product are listed under is 711 95 — Furniture Installation Services & 71-310 Industrial & Institutional Furniture. Dwyer's products are available through GSA Advantage, the one-stop online resource for GSA-approved products and services.

Dwyer also has earned the approval of its New York state contract, declaring the company an official vendor for government and state buildings. All New York healthcare facilities, agencies, schools and non-profits are eligible to purchase from the contract, which provides fixed prices for Goelst by Dwyer modular casework, break areas and office solutions. Local government agencies also can buy Dwyer products through the New York state contract.
