Super Summer Spectacular 2017 a Success!

The soul survivors sit and converse after a huge lunch.

On Thursday and Friday, June 1st and 2nd, Four State Maintenance Supply hosted an event for its customers that allowed them to participate in drawings, roam vendor booths to learn about products and services, sample products, learn about our budgeting program, and strengthen relationships with our salesmen and internal staff.

For most, closing out the show meant eating a lunch cooked by one of the owners, Tim Roberts, on our Green Mountain Grill: pulled pork and ribs!

With approximately 80 customers attending, six vendor representatives, and over 20 of our own staff, the event proved to be informational, fun, and a great experience for everyone.

While this event takes place once a year, we have no problem showing you our office and warehouse! If you’d like to know what we’re all about, give us a call to let us know, and we’ll be glad to show you around.

Coffeyville Chamber of Commerce CNN at 4-State!

On Wednesday, February 22nd, 4-State played host to CNN (Coffee, News and Networking) in the conference room, followed by a warehouse tour for anyone that was interested.

A few, among the 35 that attended, were surprised to find out that 4-State has a showroom, and that the company makes all product available to walk-in customers.

Now Selling: Green Mountain Grills!

SALE PRICE: UP TO $100 OFF!
Reflected by sale price in graphic.  Offer valid until April 15th, 2017.

GRILL SMARTER. EAT BETTER.

GMG now offers WiFi Point-to-Point control for all models. Program your favorite customized sets of cooking instructions and save them forever. The free app will revolutionize the way you grill, and give you complete control at your fingertips!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

A motor turns an auger which feeds pellets into a firebox. There, a hot rod automatically ignites the pellets, and a combustion fan keeps them burning. A fan inside the hopper maintains positive pressure which prevents burn-back in the auger tube. A sensor mounted inside the grill sends data to the on-board computer ten times every second, and the controller adjusts the air and pellet flow to maintain the temperature you set.

CALL US AT 1-800-497-5707 (TOLL FREE) OR 620-251-7033 FOR MORE INFORMATION, OR EMAIL SUPPORT (SUPPORT@4STATEMAINTENANCE.COM).  WALK-INS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!

Professional Development Day 2017 is a success!

With the help of 10 different vendors, a number of 4-State staff members, and a gracious host in USD 501 Topeka, last Friday’s Professional Development Day 2017 (2/3/17) was a huge success. Promoting everything from product/equipment knowledge and education about the cleaning process…to budgeting and recoating wood floors, more than 50 superintendents, maintenance directors, and custodial staff members attended the show. Tables were set out for each vendor, with product samples and literature at each, giving customers an opportunity to interact with the vendor(s) throughout the day. Additionally, the attendees were able to demo equipment from our Tomcat line, which instantly became a big hit.

In the afternoon, tickets were drawn for multiple prizes, including a steamer, two Bona SuperCourt floor systems, and trash liners. A gym floor recoat demo was performed to end the day’s activities.

4-State appreciates all individuals involved in making the show a success, and is thankful for the numerous customers that attended.

ISSA CIMS Certification: Mike Hayes

The Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) was created for facility service provider organizations, and applies to an organization’s management structure and performance systems and processes. It should be thought of as a framework to help facility service providers develop customer-centered organizations, and is based on universally accepted management principles, consisting of five sections:

        • 1) Quality Systems
        • 2) Service Delivery
        • 3) Human Resources
        • 4) Health, Safety and Environmental Stewardship
        • 5) Management Commitment

Certification indicates that an organization conforms to the requirements set forth in the Standard, and has successfully demonstrated compliance to an independent, accredited assessor.

Mike Hayes, Regional Sales Manager for the state of Kansas, recently completed the required training courses and earned CIMS certification as a representative of Four State Maintenance Supply, Inc.

Tomcat: CARBON Scrubber

Tomcat’s CARBON Floor Scrubber is known for its simple design and durable construction, offering unmatched value for the customer. The CARBON comes equipped with a Traction drive which includes a powerful all-gear transaxle for climbing ramps and max operator ease.

While keeping with the constant durability that Tomcat machines have to offer, your operators will find the CARBON easy to maneuver into tight areas, and simple to service. The deck is protected by steel guards and large polyurethane rollers to keep the unit from marking walls.

The scrubbers are available with disk, cylindrical and EDGE scrub heads.

    • Disk: popular in most applications where general cleaning is a concern.
    • Cylindrical: great when small debris is a concern as well as grouted tile lines.
    • EDGE: used in schools, malls, and airports for maintaining and stripping floor finish.
