Facilities

CollegeBuys  /  For Colleges  /  Our Partners  /  Facilities

CollegeBuys is the only group purchasing program focused exclusively on the needs of Community Colleges and has over 10 years of experience in working directly with colleges to develop facility contracts for high-quality furniture, flooring, and specialty fixtures. Our solution-oriented approach takes the guesswork out of the purchasing process by evaluating the total cost of each product from the initial decision making phase through the end of the product’s lifespan and makes it easy for colleges with limited resources to make intelligent purchases at significant savings. Local representatives are available to answer questions and offer assistance, and colleges can rest assured that they are selecting durable products designed to last in the most demanding environments.

All-Phase

All-Phase Electric Supply Co. is one of the nation's largest and most reliable purveyors of
electrical goods since 1957. Our foundational principles are service, integrity, and reliability.
Our commitment to environmental responsibility goes beyond merely selling energy efficient lamps, light fixtures and power-saving retrofit kits. We bring the practice of sustainability home. This very website, for example, is hosted on a server that uses less than two-thirds of the power of a standard server. Our Host has also made a bold move to support renewable energy by purchasing certified Renewable Energy Credits amounting to 130% of their actual power usage. The cost is a little higher, but we think it's worth it to ensure that our site is not just Carbon Neutral, but actually Carbon Negative, supporting the growth and expansion of renewable sustainable energy nationwide.
