Higher education institutions can now save more on tires, tubes, and installation services with a competitively awarded contract from E&I Cooperative Purchasing. As the largest buying cooperative for higher education in the U.S., E&I, is now offering its members access to its Michelin contract. This value-driven contract is the result of a joint endeavor with the State of Georgia Department of Administrative Services.

As part of the program, E&I members can take advantage of significant savings on Michelin, BFGoodrich and Uniroyal tires for passenger cars, light and heavy trucks, earthmover, off-the-road, industrial, and agricultural equipment. Benefits of the contract include:

  • Extensive nationwide Michelin Dealer Network – Michelin, BFGoodrich, and Uniroyal Tires are included through the network.
  • Pricing for installation services
  • Tire/tube products for passenger cars, light/heavy trucks, construction, industrial and agricultural equipment

“We are excited to add this industry leader to our growing automotive supplies portfolio,” said Tom Fitzgerald, CEO of E&I Cooperative. “Our members will realize much needed savings from the products available through this competitively awarded contract.”
