International Club Suppliers Adds New Agronomy Vendors to ICS Marketplace
International Club Suppliers (ICS) – the sales and marketing arm for entegra Procurement Services (entegra) in the club and resort channel – has added new agronomy vendors to the expanded ICS Marketplace.
Easy Picker, Global Turf, Green Jacket®, and Pure Seed are now available, granting golf courses opportunities to realize significant savings on maintenance expenditures. These vendors join current ICS Marketplace partners like Cleveland/Srixon, Columbia Outerwear, Cutter & Buck, Greg Norman, and Under Armour Eyewear among others.
“We’re thrilled to integrate these select vendors and further develop ICS Marketplace,” says Jim Sartain, Chief Executive Officer of ICS. “Our goal is to continue adding top-notch partners, so we can provide our loyal members with savings across a wide spectrum of service areas.”
From its unveiling in May 2017, ICS Marketplace has offered savings of 7-to-25 percent. The marketplace includes a variety of everyday items like branded apparel and equipment, as well as event-specific offerings like custom accessories, luggage, custom metal pieces, tumblers, and several other unique tournament items. Real-time support and professional advice are also available to all ICS members.
Vendors interested in being part of the expanded ICS Marketplace should reach out to Sartain (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Vice President of Vendor/Client Services Debbie Nipper (email@example.com).
Since its founding in 2002, ICS has achieved 5-to-15 percent savings for facilities on products ranging from dairy, produce, dry goods and meat to cleaning supplies, paper products, flatware, glassware, tables and chairs. The company also recently entered a new enhanced partnership with the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA). This partnership will allow CMAA members to take advantage of specific parts of the entegra program including program savings via the new entegra initiative “Beyond Prime.” With Beyond Prime access now available, members can earn additional discounts while reducing net costs.
