A facilities services employee for C&W Services helped BI succeed


C&W Services partners closely with Foundation Medicine, bringing continuous improvement to its facility operations aligned with Foundation Medicine’s business goals and objectives. We recently undertook a project to maximize savings across various procurement categories without compromising the quality of service to Foundation Medicine’s employees. Our on-site procurement teams are supported by C&W’s corporate procurement managers who help identify areas where vendor pricing can be reduced. As a result, we can leverage C&W Service’s national pricing agreements and preferred vendor network, while also considering local relationships that provide excellent service from sub-contractors and suppliers.


  • Our initial analysis showed that C&W Services receives significantly better pricing in several key procurement areas
    • Industrial gases
    • Janitorial products
    • Lab coats/ Uniforms
    • Office Supplies
    • Interior plant design
    • Pest Control
    • AEDs and First Aid
  • As a result, we expanded the scope of procurement to additional areas and achieved passthrough savings such as a projected $150,000 in savings for Lab Coat services over the life of our current contract.
