Whirlpool Corporation and Greystar Real Estate Partners recently initiated a joint national appliance program that will enable the nationwide multifamily property management company to provide Whirlpool and Amana brand appliances in its facilities at affordable prices.
The agreement includes a preferred vendor program for new construction, rehabilitation and appliance replacement at all Greystar communities.
“This agreement will allow us to provide the greatest return on investment for our clients by leveraging the strength of Whirlpool Corporation’s brands and services,” said DeeAnne Clowes, senior director of national procurement at Greystar. “Our community owners will be able to easily select from a variety of Energy Star-qualified kitchen and laundry appliances and have them delivered to the right place at the right time, which is crucial to a smooth-operating portfolio and meeting Greystar’s sustainability objectives for energy management.”
Whirlpool Corporation worked with Greystar’s new web-based expense management program OpsTechnology Spend Management Systems to ensure that Greystar’s processes remained efficient.
“It is crucial for operations to run as efficiently and smoothly as possible when you’re the largest multifamily management company,” said Tom Halford, general manager, contract sales and marketing at Whirlpool Corporation.
“Whirlpool Corporation’s continued efforts with this system further showed us its commitment to our business and the multifamily industry. Working with OpsTechnology will allow us to achieve seamless procurement and invoice processing,” Clowes said.
Headquartered in Benton Harbor, Mich., Whirlpool Corporation is a member of NAHB’s Leading Suppliers Council.
