|Sherwin-Williams: THP/NTRA Purchasing
Vendor of the Month
Sherwin-Williams, a global producer of
paints and coatings, is the THP/NTRA Purchasing Vendor of the Month for
July. Sherwin-Williams offers preferred pricing on its products to horsemen
as an NTRA Purchasing partner. All THP members are eligible to take advantage
of these special packages since the THP is an NTRA member.
Sherwin-Williams has taken the lead in service and product advances
for fence, barn and indoor/outdoor paints. In addition, the company sells
other products such as stains, wallcoverings, carpet, and painting supplies.
In addition to the financial discount you will receive through NTRA
Purchasing, the horse racing industry will benefit from your participation
in this program because a portion of every sale through the program goes
back into the horse racing industry.
Some of the highlights of the Sherwin-Williams-NTRA Purchasing program
available to THP members include:
- Pre-established pricing consistent at every farm
- Account established with just one call
- 20%-40% savings on paint and related items
- 100% Acrylic Fence Paint available in black or white
- Pre-assigned servicing locations for each farm
- Stores staffed with knowledgeable employees able to answer all of
your coating questions
- Specifications written upon request
- Sherwin Williams Sales Rep available for specifications
- A portion of every sale goes back into the industry
All THP members have to do to get started taking advantage of Sherwin-Williams
discounts is make one phone call to your Texas NTRA Purchasing Representative,
Allen Roark, at (254) 337-0843 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let him know that you want to set up an account to use the Sherwin-Williams
discount, and he will give you an account number and inform your local
Sherwin-Williams dealer of the account and the procedures they need
to follow in order to ensure that you get the appropriate discount.
According to Texas Horsemen’s Partnership Director of Communications
Richard E. Glover, Jr., “When I bought my house, I decided to take
advantage of discounts at Sherwin-Williams through my NTRA membership.
NTRA Purchasing made it simple. I sent one e-mail to them telling them
where the nearest Sherwin-Williams store was to me, and they gave me an
account number to use at the store and called the store manager to tell
him I would be coming in.”
“I had no experience painting, and the helpful staff at my local
Sherwin-Williams stepped me through everything I would need to do the
job. I received a considerable discount on the paint – approximately
one-third off – as well as discounts on the supplies. Overall, I
saved a good deal of money using my NTRA Purchasing discount, and there
were no surprises or problems in the billing process. I’d recommend
NTRA Purchasing’s Sherwin-Williams program to any horsemen in the
market for paint or painting supplies.”
