QCS Purchasing Cooperative provides members with a unique collaborative partnership that enables them to compete more effectively. We help achieve this by aggregating members’ purchases across our qualified supplier-partners and combining members’ purchasing power to receive more competitive pricing than members can on their own. Managed so as to not generate a profit, QCS Purchasing Cooperative maintains a low expense ratio, so we can maximize the savings we pass on to our members.

We collaborate with and extract value from our supply partners to match the needs of our members. 

Here are a few benefits that QCS Purchasing members enjoy:

  • Competitive pricing, discounts, and rebates

Why do we call our Supply Partners, Partner’s and not Vendors?
There is a reason we call our supply partners, partners and not vendors. A purchase from a vendor is a transaction, like buying a widget for a bargain price. A partner on the other hand is someone you can collaborate with to look at things from a total cost perspective and really drive more significant value from on behalf of the members.
