OAK CREEK, Wis. (Nov. 4, 2015) – SurfaceWorks has been awarded a national contract from The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS).  The contract was awarded by Region 8 Education Service Center (ESC) in Texas after meeting strict guidelines established by the ESC 8 administration.

This contract, number 07-46 for Furniture, is effective immediately and extends to October 31, 2018.  The agreement also includes “piggybacking” language that allows various state and local governments and non-profit organizations across the nation to utilize it.
